Rugby World Cup winning All Black captain Richie McCaw has been named in the New Zealand team to face South Africa's Springboks in the Rugby Championship decider.
McCaw returns to the starting line up having recovered from injury to play in his his 120th test but first at Ellis Park.
McCaw's recall in place of Sam Cane at openside flanker was one of two changes for the world champion All Blacks, who are on the brink of a 12th southern hemisphere title in 18 seasons.
While McCaw is over the knee injury that ruled him out of the most recent wins over the Springboks and Argentina, Owen Franks has not recovered from a groin injury and was replaced at tighthead prop in Wednesday's team by Charlie Faumuina. Franks' brother, Ben, moved up to the bench.
New Zealand needs only a losing bonus point on Saturday to clinch the title.
