Springbok Women interim coach Louis Koen named three uncapped players in the starting team to face the Test against Canada in Madrid on Saturday.

The quartet of debutants apart, Koen opted for an experienced match day squad for the test at Estadio Nacional de la Universidad Complutense.

Nineteen members of the match-23 were part of last year’s Rugby World Cup squad in New Zealand.
