Springbok Women’s coach Stanley Raubenheimer retained the combinations that made a strong statement against Uganda for their second Women’s Rugby World Cup Qualifier against Madagascar on Tuesday, naming an identical starting team.
The only changes to Raubenheimer’s squad that defeated Uganda 89-5 were on the bench, where Mathrin Simmers (scrumhalf), Nomsa Mokwai (flanker) and Nqobile Mhlangu (winger) have been drafted in. They replace Felicia Jacobs, Karthy Dludla and Vuyolwethu Maqolo respectively.
Should Mokwai and Mhlangu take to the field, they will make their Springbok Women’s debuts.
The match, which will play out at the Bosman Stadium in Brakpan, will kick off at 15h00, while Kenya take on Uganda in the earlier match at 13h00.
Raubenheimer singled out better accuracy as something they would like to improve on.
