London - The Springboks will play the USA at London’s Olympic Stadium in their final pool match at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, it was confirmed overnight.

The USA beat Uruguay 32-13 (59-40 on aggregate) in the second leg match of the qualifying series in Atlanta on Saturday to book their place and continue their record of having qualified for every tournament with the exception of 1995.

The Eagles take a place in Pool B at Rugby's showcase event alongside the Springboks, Samoa, Scotland and the still-to-be-decided top Asian qualifier.

While the Eagles have been a regular at the Rugby World Cup, qualifying seven out of eight times, they have just three victories in 21 matches on the biggest stage.
