Before that, though, the Boks lost four straight matches against France, in France, with their last victory coming in 1997 when they won 52-10 under Nick Mallett with Pieter Rossouw scoring four tries.
The Bok record in France (and against France) since 1992 reads: Played 11, won 6, lost 5
With the record being that tight over the years, it is no wonder that France go into Saturday's clash as favourites given the current state of the Boks.
Allister Coetzee's men have not won in five Tests, they have one just one of their last 10 away games and they have regularly set new unwanted records over the last two international seasons.
If Coetzee is to make history for the wrong reasons on Saturday, the Boks would have to lose by 21 points or more.
That would mean their biggest ever defeat to France, eclipsing the 30-10 loss they suffered in Marseille in 2002 under Rudolf Straeuli.
Meanwhile, South Africa's record at home against France since 1992, reads: Played 12, won 7, lost 3, drawn 2.
