Springboks Lock In Castle Lager Outgoing Tour Fixtures

The Springboks’ schedule for the Outgoing Tour in November is confirmed. The double world champions will face Rugby World Cup opponents Scotland and England, before taking on Wales.

The tour kicks off on Sunday, 10 November in Edinburgh against sixth-ranked Scotland, a rematch of their opening 2023 RWC game. Next, they’ll face RWC semifinalists England at Twickenham on Saturday, 16 November, followed by Wales (ranked 10th) in Cardiff on 23 November.

This marks the Boks’ first return to Edinburgh since their November 2021 victory (30-15) and their second meeting with Wales in 2024, following their opening match against them at Twickenham on 22 June.

Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus welcomes the challenge: “We constantly want to test ourselves against the best. Facing World Cup foes Scotland, Wales, and England will be fantastic for the team and players.”

“Wales might not have had a stellar Six Nations, and Scotland and England won only two and three matches respectively, but they’re formidable at home. We need to be at our best,” Erasmus emphasizes.

A busy season awaits the Boks, featuring home tests against Ireland and New Zealand, a match against Portugal, and two tests each against Australia and Argentina.
