Springboks Return To London & Cardiff In 2016

The Springboks will be aiming to build on an impressive record in London when they return to Twickenham next year to face England on their traditional end-of-year tour, when they will also be playing Wales in Cardiff.  The Rugby Football Union of England and the Welsh Rugby Union on Tuesday announced that they will host the Springboks in November next year.  South Africa will face England at Twickenham, where they played their Rugby World Cup quarter- and semi-finals earlier this year, on Saturday 12 November 2016 (kick-off 14:30 UK time, 16:30 SA time).

The Springboks will be aiming for their sixth successive victory over England at Twickenham, dating back to 25 November 2006.  Wales, beaten by the Springboks in a tough Rugby World Cup quarter-final recently, will host South Africa at the Principality Stadium (formerly Millennium Stadium) in Cardiff two weeks later, on Saturday 26 November 2016 (kick-off time TBC).  Details of the rest of the Springboks’ tour to the Northern Hemisphere in 2016 will be announced in due course.
