Cardiff - Springbok lock Lood de Jager says they are pumped up to beat Wales as they attempt to restore pride in the jersey.
This season the Boks have shown improvement on last year, when they managed just four wins from 12 Tests.
"We were utterly disappointed with last year, all the results we had," De Jager said, as quoted by AFP.
"This year, from the start we said we needed to be better, on and off the field, and there's a better vibe than last year.
"This year has been about restoring pride. We needed to after a year like last year, it was not up to our standards, or standards of the history of Springbok rugby."
In 2017, Boks have won seven, lost three and drawn two games and De Jager feels another victory would make it a satisfactory year.
"If we get a good result on Saturday, we can be reasonably pleased with the year. It's our last game for six months and we want to end the year off well," De Jager added.
Saturday’s Test in Cardiff is scheduled for 16:30 (SA time).
