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. Charles Barkley Rockets Jersey . 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. Clyde Drexler Jersey . Many of those eyes are in the United States of America, a country that the sport has wanted on its side for some time. On Sunday the football Gods delivered once again, only this time it was time for good old USA to experience as much heartache as joy. Isaiah Hartenstein Rockets Jersey . He will play 10th-seeded Feliciano Lopez in Sundays final, after the Spanish left-hander defeated Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic 7-6 (7), 6-4. https://www.rocketsrookiesshop.com/Michael-Frazier-City-Edition-Jersey/ . 22. Wade averaged 26.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.0 steals while leading the Heat to a 3-0 record. The 31-year-old shot 60 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range en route to his 17th weekly honor.There appears to be some fire to the smoke surrounding Russell Martins potential return to Canada. After a meeting with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, CBS Chicago reporter Bruce Levine reported that the free agent catcher and his agent have meetings lined up with three more teams, including the Toronto Blue Jays. The 31-year-old Toronto native is viewed as one of the top free agent options behind the plate on the strength of a .290/.402/.430 slash line in 111 games last season. His on-base percentage was third best among National League hitters with at least 300 at-bats, trailling only Colorados Troy Tulowitzki and his Pittsburgh Pirates teammate Andrew McCutchen. Gerald Green Rockets Jersey. Martin is coming off a two-year contract he signed with the Pirates prior to the 2013 season, worth a total of $15 million. A three-time All-Star, Martin has posted a career .259 average with 119 home runs and 540 runs batted-in over 1163 games with the Pirates, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees. The Blue Jays still have one year remaining on the two-year, $8 million contract they handed to 2014 starting catcher Dioner Navarro prior to last season. ' ' '
