On Saturday, 5 June, a 45-man Springbok squad will be announced for the three-Test series against the British and Irish Lions in South Africa.
The Covid-19 pandemic nearly laid waste to the tour, and both the Springboks and Lions squads will have to operate in so-called hard bio-bubbles.
The Boks, who will be training in Bloemfontein ahead of the series, haven't played any Test rugby since their World Cup victory on 2 November 2019, and will face a battle-hardened Lions team.
Join the Sport24 team as they debate the Boks' prospects and unpack what is a highly anticipated series.
The Springboks are world champions, but do they actually start this series as underdogs?
