NEW CAPTAIN. New team. New hope.
Though the 23 tourists stepping into the Ellis Park hurt arena will be hoping it's not the same old England.
Just two years after a record-equalling 18-game winning streak Eddie Jones' side have become Red Rose robots.
So in South Africa they must shed their cyborg characteristics to prove talk of being a new England isn't just hot air.
Jones said: "It's a new side, a new team, a new captain and we want to play the game in a new way.
"We went through a period when we were very successful. We came to the end of that period.
"When I look back we got tired for a number of reasons. I think we got tactically, physically and mentally tired and that was shown in our results.
"I think we've all had a break and had a look at where we want to go."
Skipper Owen Farrell is the man spearheading this self-titled new era.
As the Six Nations showed, changes should have been made months earlier with the World Cup starting in just 12 Tests time.
But Farrell said: "It's a new opportunity for us. We learned a lot about ourselves in the Six Nations.
"We were probably not as bad as everyone made out at the time but the challenge now is to get excited about Saturday and to be able to take a knock and still come through it.
"Not just sticking in the game, but for it to bring out the best in you. That's something we’ll try and make sure happens."
There is no secret in what is coming.
England haven't beaten South Africa at Ellis Park since 1972.
The re-booted Springboks will be fuelled by passion and fight. The hits will be hard and the pace frantic.
At more than a MILE above sea-level, at Test rugby's highest-based stadium, the oxygen will be thin but the hostility thick.
And battle-hardened Farrell is just the kind of player you would want leading you.
But the likes of 20-year-old lock Nick Isiekwe in his first ever start has never known anything like this.
Saracens star Farrell said of the atmosphere: "It can do two things to you.
"It can either make you tense up and go within yourself or hopefully it can free you up to bring out a brilliant performance.
"We've talked a bit about playing in an unbelievable stadium in front of a very passionate crowd and a passionate nation. We've said it's a massive opportunity for us and one to get excited about.
"I remember it being a brilliant stadium. It is one of those stadiums you see on TV a good few times and you want to play there.
"To finally get to play there, when you do, it is brilliant. You want to play at all the best stadiums in the world."
While England supporters grow tired of seeing their side stall, Boks fans are buzzing about rugby again.
Street hawkers risking their lives in the middle of some of Johannesburg's busiest and most-dangerous roads have been flogging knock-off Springboks shirts in the build up.
Ahead of kick-off the braais will be fired-up around Ellis Park as party-fever hits fever-pitch.
And with inspirational captain Siya Kolisi leading his side out, even Jo'Burg's football-mad township Soweto, home of Nelson Mandela, will be having a look.
Kolisi becomes South Africa's first ever black Test captain in 126 years.
And the 26-year-old flanker, who was raised in poverty in Port Elizabeth, said: "I think on Saturday, everything will come together and I will realise how big this moment is.
"It feels like it is a new beginning for all of us. At Ellis Park you will see the whole of South Africa, all the different races, all the colours, it is beautiful.
"We always turn up when we play here and this is one of the awesome Test matches against England – it is a special one and this is why it is such a big occasion.
"But this is also the beginning of a new chapter for us."
NEW CAPTAIN. New team. New hope.
