Cape Town - The Springboks boast a healthy head-to-head record heading into Saturday’s Test against Wales in Cardiff.

In 32 Test matches since 1906, the Boks have beaten Wales 28 times and lost just three, with one match ending in a draw.

However, the South Africans were beaten 27-13 in Cardiff last year and will be looking to avoid a third straight loss in the Welsh capital.

The Boks will nevertheless take heart from the fact that they boast an 88% win-record against the Dragons.

Saturday’s Test is scheduled for 16:30 (SA time).
