South Africa have named four uncapped players in their squad to tour Europe next month, which starts against Ireland on August 11, as coach Allister Coetzee looks to add some dynamism to his side's backline play.

Full-back Warrick Gelant, centre Lukhanyo Am and scrum-half Louis Schreuder will add to his attacking options for the Aviva Stadium clash, while No 8 Dan du Preez also gets a call-up, with regular skipper Warren Whiteley unavailable through injury.

Other players to return to the side after missing the 25-24 loss to New Zealand in their final Rugby Championship clash earlier this month are props Tendai Mtawarira and Coenie Oosthuizen, as well as back-row Uzair Cassiem.

"This squad reflects consistency and continuity, while we also rewarded players who have constantly shown good form this season," Coetzee said.

"Warrick and Lukhanyo are two examples of players who have excelled in the season so far. It's great to have them in the squad and I look forward to working with them."

Coetzee said the squad had been selected with an eye on the 2019 World Cup.

"Our process to rebuild the Bok team and steadily work towards the World Cup in Japan is continuing at a good and satisfying pace," he said.

Lock Eben Etzebeth will continue to lead the side in the absence of Whiteley, but the squad will be without Jan Serfontein, who asked not to be considered for the tour as he wants to settle in at French club Montpellier.

Siya Kolisi will return to Cape Town after the test against France on November 18 as his wife is due to give birth the following week.

Players who are contracted to overseas clubs - lock Franco Mostert, flanker Francois Louw and out-half Elton Jantjies - will not be considered for selection for the game against Wales as this Test falls outside the international window.
