OPINION: Soon Allister Coetzee will name his team for the year-end tour. rugby365 selects an alternative team from players based abroad. Who do you think will win?

Our selection criteria are simple - the player has to be a Springbok already and must be based abroad.

Injured players were considered, as long as they haven't retired.
