'viss will be a top team'.

TIM VISSER insists Scotland coach Vern Cotter has not picked a second string to face South Africa today.

Victory at St James' Park would guarantee the Scots a quarter-final encounter with either England, Wales or Australia.

Full-back Stuart Hogg will be the only Scot to start the first three pool matches, while fly-half Finn Russell and flanker John Hardie are missing through injury.

And Dutch-born winger Visser (above) said of coach Vern Cotter's selections: "In a World Cup you don't go out half-hearted to get through to the next game.

"I don't think any coach puts out a second string squad to do that against South Africa.

"We've had three games in 10 days and the squad has been selected with 31 players to do the job. We're expecting everyone to perform and we're going out to win the game tomorrow."
