Cape Town - It's been a tough northern hemisphere tour for the Springboks, so they could be forgiven a day on the golf course.

On Wednesday, that is exactly what they did as coach Allister Coetzee and his charges were pictured getting ready for a round at the highly-rated Celtic Manor Resort in Wales. 

The Boks are in Cardiff preparing for Saturday's year-ending Test against Wales at the Principality Stadium. 

If the pictures posted on Twitter on Wednesday are anything to go by, it was a rather cold round of golf.

If the Boks win on Saturday they will return to South Africa with three wins from four Tests having been thrashed by Ireland before beating France and Italy - and Wales. 

Coetzee will name his side for the clash on Thursday and kick-off on Saturday is at 16:30 SA time.
