Brookes in Saxons starting XV for South Africa 'A' clash

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Saints prop Kieran Brookes will start England Saxons' final match against South Africa 'A' in George on Friday night.

The match sees Brookes make his second start of the Saxons' tour to South Africa as the side look to follow up last week's 32-24 victory with another win.

“We’ve got to improve again," said head coach Ali Hepher ahead of the final Test.

"South Africa will come back with an improved performance and so we need to make a shift as big, if not bigger than they do.

"We’ve been working on certain things in training so that we can put more into the games and take our opportunities better when they come. We’ll be looking to be more clinical this week.”

The match, which kicks off at 6:10pm UK time, is being shown live on Sky Sports 3.
