Wales take on South Africa this afternoon in the second Test of their tour. After the 38-16 defeat in their first encounter Wales coach, Warren Gatland, has dropped tighthead prop Adam Jones.

His starting role is taken by Samson Lee of the Scarlets, while Aaron Jarvis comes on to the bench.

There is also a change at openside flanker, where Josh Turnbull takes over from his Scarlets colleague Aaron Shingler, while Ospreys number eight Dan Baker is among the replacements.

Jake Ball is preferred to Ian Evans as second-row cover on the bench. Scrum-half Mike Phillips has retained his spot, despite coming under pressure from Gareth Davies.
