Jos Schmidt has named his team to face South Africa in the deciding test of the series at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

After missing the last game through suspension, CJ Stander returns to the backrow along with Jordi Murphy and Jamie Heaslip. 

Luke Marshall also returns to the team, while Tiernan O'Halloran starts at fullback, having come off the bench in the previous game.

That sees Matt Healy named among the replacements, and if he does make an appearance, every member of the touring squad will have gotten game time on the pitch.
