Wales vs South Africa live stream FREE: How to watch Wales vs South Africa online today
This time last year, South Africa were on the receiving end of a 38-3 drubbing against Ireland before ending their European tour with defeat against Wales in Cardiff.
But new head coach Rassie Erasmus – despite only being appointed eight months ago – has since masterminded victories over world champions New Zealand, England (twice), Australia, France and Scotland.
And the size of their threat is not lost on Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones.
“(Eben) Etzebeth is on the bench, so I am sure he is going to feature at some point, and they have got Francois Louw on the bench as well, so they’ve got strong guys to come in to the latter stages of the game,” Jones said.
“I think it shows the strength of South African rugby that they have got guys like that on the bench.
“It’s very much one game at a time for us. A few of us didn’t play last week (against Tonga) and the guys gave us momentum going into this week.
“International rugby is about winning. We’ve got momentum from the last three weeks and we want to finish well.”
