The inclusion of Buthelezi and Bosch are two of several changes to the side, with Dylan Richardson, who this week was called up to Scotland’s squad, coming in for James Venter while Henco Venter shifts from eighth man to flank to accommodate Buthelezi’s return.

As a result, Gerbrant Grobler is named on a bench that features a six-two split between forwards and backs.

In the final change, Anthony Volmink starts on the wing for the injured Thaakir Abrahams, with Bosch wearing the fullback jersey.

“Cardiff have a very proud home record and we’re expecting a hostile crowd which is great because it fires us up, but it is good to be playing in front of fans again,” Everitt said.
