South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus made one change from the starting XV that drew with New Zealand in July if he named his team with the champions.
Siya Kolisi, that overlooked the Wellington draw because of trauma, will captain the side in place of Kwagga Smith at openside flanker to make an imposing back row with number eight Duane Vermeulen and Pieter Steph du Toit.
Otherwise, Erasmus has stuck with all the negative that last played the All Blacks for a match that is likely to choose who enjoys the possibly easier route through the final and wins Pool B.
The squad for its Yokohama clash was equal to this one Erasmus set out in Kumagaya this season this month which kept the Springboks unbeaten.
“We’ve discovered some consequences and some momentum in several of ways this season and one of these is in choice,” Erasmus said.
“We’ve 31 players in the group, some of whom I’d be happy to select… but this is a line-up that has functioned well as a starting combination and you with real momentum to emerge in the seat.
“We are continuing to build up and new players are always pushing a promise but we’ve prepared well and we’re looking ahead to what will likely be yet another extremely close match.”
Prop Trevor Nyakane kept his position on the bench despite question marks on his fitnesscenter, while Cheslin Kolbe held on his place on the wing.
There was no place for Smith or even Nkosi together with Francois Louw covering the rear row and Jesse Kriel three.
The flexible 32-year-old Frans Steyn behave as with Elton Jantjies missing out despite starting tests against Australia and Argentina in the number 10 shirt this year and will cover the centers.
South Africa: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cheslin Kolbe, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Handre Pollard, 9 Faf de Klerk; 1 Steven Kitshoff, 2 Malcom Marx, 3 Frans Malherbe, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 5 Franco Mostert, 6 Siya Kolisi (c), seven Pieter Steph du Toit, 8 Duane Vermeulen.
