South Africa complete their end of the year fixtures with this clash against Wales at the Millenium Stadium, one which has been described by coach Rassie Erasmus as the “toughest” of their tour. The Boks lost by a point to England at Twickenham, beat France in Paris thanks to a stoppage time try and saw off a strong Scotland side at Murrayfield last weekend. A win in Cardiff will mark this as a very satisfactory tour for Erasmus, and could see the Boks go to third in the World rankings.
Despite his alleged headbutt on Peter Horne, Siya Kolisi is free to lead the Springboks and Erasmus has named an unchanged starting XV for the first time this year. Eben Etzebeth however comes onto the bench. There is another start for Embrose Papier at scrumhalf.
Wales will be without the services of Leigh Halfpenny, who misses this one due to concussion. A lot will therefore depend on Gareth Anscombe, the former Baby Blacks flyhalf and Liam Williams.
