Three months on from the most embarrassing defeat of the Wayne Pivac era, Wales face the most daunting challenge in rugby today – a three-Test series against the world champions and current No.1-ranked side. The Springboks have won all 10 of their previous meetings with Wales on home soil, including the 96-13 battering that remains Wales’ heaviest ever defeat. With this first test set to be played at altitude, Pivac may be fearing the worst. Read on as our guide explains how to get a South Africa vs Wales live stream and watch the Summer International rugby match online from anywhere.
The last we saw of Wales, they’d fallen flat on their faces with a scarcely believable 22-21 defeat to Italy, who hadn’t won a Six Nations match in their previous 40 attempts. Having to follow that with a triple-header against South Africa is almost cruel, but if they’re to stand any chance of being contenders at the next World Cup, some brutal honesty may be required.
George Ford is back in the side after a year out with a serious injury, as is Dan Lydiate, while Tommy Reffell has been rewarded for an outstanding season with Leicester with his Wales debut. Alun Wyn Jones is on the bench, so the captain’s bracelet goes to Dan Biggar.
Jacques Nienaber has left Handre Pollard and Willie le Roux out of his lineup, with Elton Jantjies and Damian Willemse starting at fly-half and full-back instead. As ever, the Boks will be looking to dominate from set-pieces, and in their first home game in front of a full house since they won the World Cup nearly three years ago, only a win will do. Follow our guide as we explain how to get a South Africa vs Wales live stream wherever you are.
