“We have never been a side that focuses on outcome; our focus has always been about the process and our energy levels were below the standards we set as a group.” – Jackson Wray

Following a four-week suspension, Will Skelton comes into the second row to partner Callum Hunter-Hill and USA prop Titi Lamositele replaces Springbok Vincent Koch at tighthead.
