    The controversy over the captaincy of the South African Rugby Union side to meet New Zealand's All Blacks in the first test in Durban next Saturday has been settled. Named as Captain is Morne Du Plessis, who led a Western Provincial side to a thrilling win against the All Blacks - 12 points to 11.
