THE Springboks have confirmed the venues for their test matches against Scotland this summer, with South Africa’s opening game against Scotland on the 4th of July their first appearance since winning the World Cup last year.

Scotland will take on the world champions at DHL Newlands in Cape Town in what will be the final international at the oldest test venue in the southern hemisphere.

And then two weeks later, the Scots will play their second match against South Africa, which will take place at Jonsson Kings Park in Durban.

Scotland’s last meeting with the Springboks was in November 2018 at Murrayfield where the visitors ran out 26-20 winners, while Scotland’s last victory over South Africa was in 2010 where they emerged 21-17 winners at Murrayfield.

After Scotland have played their brace of matches against the world champions, they will then travel to New Zealand to take on the All Blacks in Dunedin on the 18th of July.
