After a successful home series against Wales, the Springboks lead the way in SARugbymag.co.za‘s Dream Team based on performances in the July Tests.
Throughout July, the top 10 Test teams have been in action in a battle between the northern and southern hemisphere.
Ireland and England both claimed series wins over the All Blacks and Wallabies, respectively, while the Springboks got one back for the south by beating Wales in the series decider in Cape Town.
There are four players from the successful Springbok team: locks Eben Etzebeth and Lood de Jager, as well as centre pair Damian de Allende and Lukhanyo Am.

Ireland and England both contribute three players each, while Wales’ gutsy effort in South Africa earned two of their players – wing Louis Rees-Zammit and flank Tommy Reffell – selection.
Despite having both suffered historic home losses, New Zealand and Australia have one player each in the team as loose forward Ardie Savea carried the All Blacks, while scrumhalf Nic White was the in-form Wallabies player against England.
