Also wouldn't have Jones there, he's either injured or at the beginning of his preseason just coming back from an injury and three months of no rugby at all. Centre isn't a worry for us, so I'd say leave him in SA and bring him back for the Summer tests.
Don't have enough depth to change any of the other choices, bar I'd want Price over Laidlaw, he's bang on form right now.

I'm not too confident, we have some key players missing and a tough start vs Ireland one of the top 3 teams in the world first up and then a trip to Paris which is always tough and then you find yourself two defeats against Wales.

For Deans fail to pass on Saturday he came from the blindside right through in support I don’t doubt a Jones ,Dunbar or Taylor would have found him with a pass so think he deserves a chance plus Visser has been our for a while I think so he may not be released back.
