Springboks reveal who they will face in their first matches since RWC triumph

World Cup winners South Africa have confirmed who they will face in 2020 in their first matches as champions. 

Having lifted the trophy in Yokohama at the start of November and embarked on a champions tour of their country, Springboks rugby has been basking in the limelight and they have now revealed who Rassie Erasmus’ yet-to-be-announced successor will take on next July. 

The Springboks will face Scotland and Georgia in three home Tests in the new international window, as part of the Castle Lager Incoming Series match schedule.

The newly-crowned World Cup champions are scheduled to play two Tests against Scotland – July 4 and 11 – before hosting Georgia on July 18.

It will be the Scots’ first visit to South Africa since June 2014, when the Boks beat them 55-6 in Port Elizabeth.

The Springboks and Georgia have only met once before, in a pool match at the World Cup in 2003 in Sydney when South Africa won 46-19.

SA Rugby will confirm the venues and kick-off times of the three matches at a later stage.
