Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
Montgomery is back in the international side for the first time since 2001 no doubt his re-call on the basis his good kicking goal-kicking for the Dragons whom he joined in 2002.
Montgomery was not considered for the opening Test because of injury but this time around is delighted with his selection.
""It's great to be part of the Springboks again," he said. "I always thought I would be back. The question was when. It's a new era for South African rugby and it's really good. It's a great opportunity and special to be back at Newlands."
