Ireland Rugby Team Well Positioned Against South Africa

The second test that is coming up would have a rugby team of Ireland playing. They would be playing for South Africa.

There have been five changes that is definitely a first. Quinn Roux is a South African born player who would be making a debut for the Irish team. There have been considerable changes after the historic victory the team had in Cape Town. Tadgh Furlong as well as Rhys Ruddock could be part of the pack as well. Ruddock is also set to play the role of an open side flank player. Ian Henderson would be playing on the blind side. He would be substituting CJ Stander who has been suspended for the time being.

Ireland is set to take on South Africa at the Johannesburg venue this weekend. Among the several changes that have come about in the Ireland team Quinn Roux is one of the changes made. Though he is an uncapped player, he brings in great potential for the team. In the second test that is coming up this weekend Joe Schmidt has made several changes in the selections for his squad.

The five changes that have been made and seven changes in totality include several uncapped players being added to the team. These are players like Craig Gilroy, Stuart Olding, Quinn Roux, Tadh Furlong and Rhys Ruddock. The latter would be starting on the open side. He has been playing for Springboks in November 2014. These players are coming in for players who are unwell like Chris Henry or Ian Henderson who has switched to the blind side from the lock. There might be more players coming off the bench to play in the forthcoming game. It remains to be seen how well the new players sync with the old. It would definitely be an interesting match to watch.
