Springboks to play Wales in World Cup friendly

– Cape Town SA Rugby confirmed on Monday that the Springboks will meet Wales at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on August 19, 2023 in a World Cup warm-up match.

The world champions will begin their title defense against Scotland in Marseille on September 10, followed by Pool B matches against Romania (September 17 in Bordeaux), Ireland (September 23 in Paris), and Tonga (October 1 in Marseille).

In July of this year, the Boks defeated Wales by a score of 2-1.

The players of Jacques Nienaber will not, however, underestimate the Dragons prior to the global championship.

Prior to a 23-18 victory in Cardiff in 2021 and a 19-16 victory in the World Cup quarterfinals in Yokohama in 2019, South Africa had lost four consecutive games vs the Welsh between 2016 and 2018.

These results indicate that Wales will be a formidable opponent for the Boks before to the World Cup.

Nienaber stated, “Wales have always been formidable opposition for us, and our results against them over the past few years are indicative of the caliber of their team.”

“The Rugby World Cup is one of the toughest competitions in the world, and you must be at your best every week to reach the final, so it’s crucial that we face top competition in the weeks leading up to the tournament.

“Because Wales (seventh) is in the top 10 in the world and has a terrific win record against us in Cardiff over the past few seasons, we have no doubt that this match will be an excellent character test and World Cup preparation for us.”

End of October will see the Boks convene for their end-of-year trip.

They will play Ireland on November 5, France on November 12, Italy on November 19, and England on November 26, as well as Munster (November 10) and Bristol Bears (November 10). (November 17).
