Both the Ireland U20s and seniors have travelled to South Africa.

The first Test is scheduled for Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday, with the second Test a week later at Hollywoodbets Kings Park in Durban.

The Boys in Green flew into Johannesburg last week, and have been enjoying their match-week time in the country.

On Tuesday, they were given a sense of the task ahead of them when Rassie Erasmus named the World Cup winners’ team for the opening test.

The former Munster coach has included 12 starters from the 2023 Rugby World Cup final win over New Zealand.

Erasmus will have a six-two split on the bench with four changes form the Springbok team beaten by Ireland in the World Cup pool match last year.

Willie le Roux comes in at fullback, Handre Pollard is named at outhalf, while Ox Nche comes in at loosehead and Kwagga Smith at number eight.

There had been rumours, fuelled by Springboks head coach Rassie Erasmus, that the France-based Siya Kolisi may not skipper the home side.

But those rumours were put to rest as Erasmus announced Kolisi as skipper.
