3. FRANCE V SPRINGBOKS

Stade de France is the setting for the hugely anticipated Test between France and the Springboks.

The Boks are on under pressure to deliver following their 38-3 hammering against Ireland last weekend.

Saturday's Test in Paris holds extra spice after South Africa lost out on the right to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup - to France!

Kick-off is at 22:00 SA time.
