Saracens' Schalk Brits will play against the Springboks after being named in the World XV side for their match in Cape Town on June 7.
The match acts as a warm up game for South Africa ahead of their two-Test series against Wales and the World XV side is packed with ex-Boks. Brits will take his place in the team alongside prop BJ Botha, lock Alistair Hargreaves and Juandre Kruger. Castres' scrum-half Rory Kockott is also in the squad.
The six will be joined by Carl Hayman, Julien Bonnaire, James O'Connor, Steffon Armitage, Matt Giteau, Francois Trinh-Duc, Drew Mitchell and Hosea Gear with the team coached by Nick Mallett.
