The first encounter took place way back in 1952, when the Springboks ran out comfortable 17-3 winners in Cardiff.

But since then it’s not been all plain sailing for South Africa, with the BaaBaas winning four of the next six matches to hold a 4-3 advantage.

They also won the two most recent encounters - in 2007 and 2010.

Saturday’s match is scheduled for 17:30 (SA time).
