PARIS, Oct 18 (Reuters) South Africa have named an unchanged starting team for Saturday's World Cup final against England at the Stade de France.

Coach Jake White has kept faith with the same 15 that started in last weekend's semi-final win over Argentina but made one change to the reserves bench.

Loose forward Wikus van Heerden, who started in the quarter-final against Fiji but missed the semi-final, returned at the expense of former Springboks captain Bob Skinstad.

The starting side will be the most experienced South Africa has ever fielded in a test, boasting 668 test caps between them.

Loosehead prop Os Du Randt is the only survivor from the South Africa team that won the World Cup at home in 1995.
