Hooker Malcolm Marx was left out of this South Africa starting XV to face Japan at the Rugby World Cup.
As Mbongeni Mbonambi starts, a nominee for World Player of the Year award in 2018, Even the 25-year-old, is on the seat.
Wings Cheslin Kolbe and Makazole Mapimpi both begin, in 12 together with Handre Pollard in 10 and Damian Allende.
Secondly row Lood de Jager, who will proceed following the championship to Sale, can also be included.
Coach Rassie Erasmus has called the starting XV that beat against Italy 49-3 within their pool match, following a second-string side
However Marx is among 3 players who were chosen to begin the assembly with New Zealand on the tournaments opening weekend, however, have dropped out of favour.
Bongi is unquestionably a physical, barbarous, scrummaging, in-your-face hooker. Malcolm is very much in precisely exactly the identical mould, and both will become close to 40 minutes, said Erasmus.
But Bongi at the tighter first halfand if the match opens up a little bit more in the second half, Malcolm in the second half would benefit the group by selecting it in this way.
South Africa fell prey to arguably the best shock at the history of the World Cup when dropping to Japan in in Brighton in the pool stages of the 2015 championship, but recorded a detailed 41-7 victory once the teams met for the first time since within an warm-up match in September.
That result is practically irrelevant. We can forget Brighton and Kumagaya now, and revolve around the quarter-finals, added Erasmus.
How Japan have improved because this game is enormous, as theyve beaten Ireland and Scotland, and topped with pool. And then they did it.
Saying that they have improved is true, but we feel we have also improved a good deal because this match.
There are big expectations in a quarter-final – it is not a favorable. It is about who manages the pressure the very best, and expectations the ideal.
Erasmus declared his team more than 24 hours until he had been required to, but said hedidnt care really about committing Japan counterpart Jamie Joseph prior knowledge of his line-up.
If they will change their staff because of the way we picked our team, then I think you will find a few problems within their team selection coverage, he explained.
