Eddie Jones and Rassie Erasmus have named their teams ahead of Saturday's Rugby World Cup final in Yokohama.
England are unchanged for the decider, as Owen Farrell and his team look to emulate the 2003 vintage of Wilkinson, Johnson and Dallaglio.
Head Coach Eddie Jones said: “It has been a good week, the players have been together a while now so it’s less about the volume of training this week, it’s more about sharpening the sword.
“South Africa are a difficult opponent and we are going to have to fight really hard to win. We know the physical part of the game is going to be important and the players will go into this game well prepared knowing how we want to play. We will go and play with no fear.
“South Africa will probably play a similar type of game they have played all tournament so we need be good in the arm wrestle and when we have the opportunities to break the game up, we are then confident and composed enough to take them."

Rassie Erasmus has made just one change to the South Africa starting line up with wing Cheslin Kolbe back in the fold. Siya Kolisi will skipper the team from the flank as he looks to enter South African rugby folklore with Pienaar and John Smit.
