Shane Williams’ Bok-beating XV

Former winger and Welsh great Shane Williams has picked a Welsh XV that he believes will beat the Springboks.

87-test Williams voiced his pre-match predictions for Wales online websitec and picked the 15 run on players he thinks could topple the Springboks.

“As we saw from their win over Scotland, South Africa are much improved, but I really believe Wales are just as physical, and offer far more danger behind. If it clicks for them, I fancy them to win.”

His starting XV is as follows:

15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14  George North, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Hadleigh Parkes, 11 Liam Williams, 10 Gareth Anscombe, 9 Gareth Davies, 8 Ross Moriarty, 7 Justin Tipuric, 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Cory Hill, 4 Alun Wyn Jones, 3 Dillon Lewis, 2 Ken Owens, 1 Rob Evans
