With a thrilling encounter thus on the cards, exciting match-ups will be seen across the park during the game. Here are three key battles that could help decide the outcome:Springbok flyhalf Manie Libbok is set to receive one of the biggest challenges of his budding international career so far as he fronts up against Scottish star Finn Russell.

In-form Canan Moodie was arguably the front runner for the right wing berth, but he picked up a hamstring niggle that ruled him out of the match. Arendse thus has a golden chance to impress and push himself back ahead as the preferred starter going forward. Arendse hass been in good form this season and he will be keen for another top showing, but he could find his hands full in dealing with Van Der Merwe.Springbok pack v Scottish pack

The Bok pack will be heading into the match as heavy favourites after they absolutely steamrolled the All Blacks pack in their warm-up two weeks ago.
