Morne Steyn drafted into Springboks' starting XV

Morne Steyn will come into the South Africa line-up for the second Tri-Nations Test against New Zealand in Durban.

Morne Steyn will come into the South Africa line-up for the second Tri-Nations Test against New Zealand in Durban. Steyn, whose last-gasp kick clinched a series victory against the British and Irish Lions earlier this summer, replaces the injured Ruan Pienaar in the Springboks' starting XV. Lock Andries Bekker is back on the replacements' bench for South Africa in place of loose forward Ryan Kankowski, while fit-again centre Adi Jacobs takes Steyn's place on the bench. Winger Bryan Habana and centre Jean de Villiers are both set to win their 50th cap for the Springboks. John Smit will captain the side for a world record 60th time, in his 86th appearance in total for his country.

South Africa beat the All Blacks 28-19 in the first Test in Bloemfontein at the weekend. * PA Sport
