CARDIFF -- The Springboks handed tighthead prop Frans Malherbe a test debut and recalled veteran backs Jaque Fourie and JP Pietersen for the tour opener against Six Nations champion Wales at Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The 22-year-old Malherbe, from Western Province, replaced Jannie du Plessis, who didnt make the tour because of a chronic shoulder injury and broken hand. Another uncapped player, Sharks lock Pieter-Steph du Toit, was in the reserves. He would have played earlier this season if he hadnt injured his sternum, coach Heyneke Meyer said on Wednesday. There are five changes from the starters who lost an epic match to the All Blacks at Ellis Park on Oct. 5. The centre Fourie last appeared for South Africa at the 2011 World Cup, while Pietersen hasnt been available all year until now. The only other change in the forwards has Flip van der Merwe locking with Eben Etzebeth. "Frans has big boots to fill, but hes been with us for most of 2012 and shown good form since recovering from injury recently, and we dont have any doubts that he has what it takes to make the step up," Meyer said. "Hell have two players with more than 50 test caps each next to him in the scrum (Bismarck du Plessis and Tendai Mtawarira), and his general workrate across the field and on defence is very good. Im very happy for Frans." The inclusion of Fourie and Pietersen means all but fullback Pat Lambie, in for Zane Kirchner, in the backline have at least 40 caps. "Were very fortunate to have two world-class players in JP and Jaque and I wanted to get then into the action as soon as possible," Meyer said. "It was clear from our training sessions thus far that they are in great form and ready for test rugby." ------ South Africa: Pat Lambie, JP Pietersen, Jaque Fourie, Jean de Villiers (captain), Bryan Habana, Morne Steyn, Fourie du Preez; Duane Vermeulen, Willem Alberts, Francois Louw, Flip van der Merwe, Eben Etzebeth, Frans Malberhe, Bismarck du Plessis, Tendai Mtawarira. Reserves: Adriaan Strauss, Gurthro Steenkamp, Coenie Oosthuizen, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Siya Kolisi, Ruan Pienaar, JJ Engelbrecht, Willie le Roux. Thomas Meunier Jersey . Now Arizonas new manager is hoping Yasmany Tomas can have the same effect on the Diamondbacks. Paris Saint-Germain Jerseys . According to a police report, Douglas is accused of grabbing his girlfriend by the neck and slamming her against the wall several times while he carried her from the elevator to their Hartford hotel room early Sunday morning. http://www.parissaintgermainfcstore.com/Women-Jese-Paris-Saint-Germain-Jersey/ . The stakes were higher, the competition more fierce and the atmosphere was that of a playoff game - something the young, upstart Raptors have five weeks to better prepare themselves for or the result will be eerily similar. Marquinhos Jersey . He was signed to help with depth to the receiving corps because of the loss of Shamawd Chambers to the 6-game injured list. Sebastien Cibois Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . The 34-year-old averaged 10.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 82 games played in 2013-14 with the Utah Jazz. Jefferson has averaged 14.5 points, 4.Colin Montgomerie said it was a privilege to have witnessed Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson battle it out for the honour of becoming The Open champion. Stenson produced a staggering display to record 10 birdies and two bogeys to beat the Open record of 19 under set by Tiger Woods in 2000 to win the 145th Open Championship.The shootout between the two was reminiscent of the Duel in the Sun just down the Ayrshire coastline at Turnberry in 1977, when Tom Watson beat Jack Nicklaus by one shot after a weekend of punches and counterpunches. Final leaderboard The 145th Open Forty-under-par between the two of them is just remarkable. It will go down as one of the great, great days, said Montgomerie, who has made 22 Open appearances.We talked about 1977, the Watson-Nicklaus Duel in the Sun and it lasted nearly 40 years. Weve witnessed possibly something better.Stenson lost more than $10million in the infamous Allen Stanford scandal of 2009, but victory in the FedEx Cup and then The Race to Dubai was a step on the Swedes journey to financial recovery. Henrik Stenson said he felt that it was his time to win his first Major and admitted it hasnt sunk in that he is The Open champion But Montgomerie said that winning The Open was all about the famous Claret Jug for Stenson, adding: He always had that ability and he proved that today ten-fold.This has been remarkable. We will look back on this in many years to come as witnessing something so, so special.I am sitting here over my home course privileged to have watched it. This has been remarkable. We will look back on this in many years to come as witnessing something so, so special. Colin Montgomerie Best of the Open Zone Dustin Johnson features in the best from The Open Zone at Royal Troon There are very few people that improve in their forties, Henrik improved over these four days dramatically and we said he had thhe ability.dddddddddddd.He wasnt called the Ice Man because he lost these major championships, today he went out and he won this.The bogey the first and then shoot 63 around here is tremendous. Stenson took the lead at The Open after a birdie at the world famous eighth hole at Royal Troon The 2010 Ryder Cup winning skipper said Stenson was very studious of the game when he first encountered him on the PGA Tour.He was someone who you always respected because of the length he hit the ball. That went miles down the last, 118 yards to that bunker and it just stopped because it was damp. You need a bit of fortune. If he hit the bunker, could have made bogey, Phil Mickelson birdies, its then a whole different ball game but were talking about a champion who has won by three. The Swede shot a final round 63 to win The Open, his first major championship, as he edged out Phil Mickelson in a thrilling final round You need a bit of fortune to win a major and thats why its so difficult because even these top 10 players in the world need a bit of luck to win majors, but hes a nice guy to be around.In the team environment hes just a good guy to be around. He is someone that you want on your side. Watch The Ryder Cup from Hazeltine live on Sky Sports - your proud new home of The Open Also See: How Stenson won the Open...
