Faf De Klerk and Cheslin Kolbe are among the players included in a strong South Africa 'A' team to face the British and Irish Lions in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Lukhanyo Am skippers a side that features nine men who played in the Springboks' 2019 World Cup final victory over England.

Five players retain starting places from the 40-9 win against Georgia on July 2 in Willie Le Roux, Pieter-Steph Du Toit, Franco Mostert, Eben Etzebeth and Trevor Nyakane.

The experienced figure of Morne Steyn has also been named in the team by coach Jacques Nienaber.

The second Test against Georgia that was scheduled for last Friday was cancelled because of coronavirus infections in both camps.

While it then emerged at the weekend that a fresh group of South Africa players and staff, including captain Siya Kolisi, had tested positive, a significant proportion of the squad were able to resume training on Sunday in the wake of six days spent isolating and six rounds of PCR testing.

With Nienaber still self-isolating, South Africa's director of rugby Rassie Erasmus has been put in charge of training.

"We're pleased to be able to name a quality team with a number of experienced players despite the challenges in the last week, which included the entire squad being confined to their rooms as part of the team's preventative self-isolation measures," Nienaber said in a statement on sarugby.co.za.

South Africa A: Willie le Roux; Cheslin Kolbe, Lukhanyo Am, Damian de Allende, Sbu Nkosi; Morné Steyn, Faf de Klerk; Steven Kitshoff, Joseph Dweba, Trevor Nyakane; Eben Etzebeth, Franco Mostert; Marco van Staden, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Jasper Wiese.

Replacements: Malcolm Marx, Coenie Oosthuizen, Vincent Koch, Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, Rynhardt Elstadt, Herschel Jantjies, Jesse Kriel, Damian Willemse, Kwagga Smith, Elton Jantjies
