Durban - The Springboks have tweeted pictures after arriving at Durban airport as they prepare to take on Wales in a Test match this weekend.

After passing their Cape Town assignment with flying colours with their 47-13 victory against a strong World XV team, they will now prepare to face Wales at Kings Park with the realisation that the team will present a very different challenge for the world's number two-ranked team.

The Welsh will be a tougher prospect, with settled combinations and an organised gameplan, as well as several seasoned campaigners that featured in the British and Irish Lions' successful series in Australia last year.

But the Durban-based Boks Tendai Mtawarira, Willem Alberts, Lwazi Mvovo and S'bura Sithole were happy to be back as they stopped out onto the tarmac to pose for this snap after arriving at the King Shaka International Airport.
