Cape Town - Springbok fans will be able to tune into live television coverage of the Springboks' first Test under new coach Rassie Erasmus on Saturday evening.

The Boks will open their 2018 campaign against Wales in Washington DC on Saturday, June 2 with the match set to kick off at 23:00 SA time on SuperSport 1.

Erasmus has named an inexperienced 26-man squad to travel to the United States for the one-off Test, with no fewer than 13 members of the squad in line to play their first Test in the green and gold.

With 32 Test caps, skipper Pieter-Steph du Toit is the most experienced member of the squad.

Following the match, the Boks will play England in a three-Test series at Ellis Park in Johannesburg (June 9), Toyota Stadium in Bloemfontein (June 16) and Newlands in Cape Town (June 23).
