Wales v South Africa, Rugby World Cup 2023 warm-up: When is it and how to watch on TV

With the Rugby World Cup less than two months away, Wales will take preparations up a notch with three warm-up matches in August.

With the side’s first game of the tournament against Fiji in Pool C scheduled for 1src Sept, head coach Warren Gatland will use the last of these three warm-up fixtures against South Africa to cement his starting line-up.

When these sides last met in 2src22, Wales lost the three-match series 2-1 but secured an historic first victory on South African soil thanks to a late converted try from Josh Adams.

Since then, Gatland has returned to the fray, replacing former head coach Wayne Pivac. But after a disappointing fifth-place finish in the Six Nations, and with several key players carrying injuries, Wales have their work cut out for them if they are to go far in the World Cup. 

When is it?

Wales face South Africa in the last of their three World Cup warm-up matches on Aug 19 at 3.15pm (BST).

Where is the match being played?

Wales will host South Africa at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff. With the roof closed, Warren Gatland’s side will be hoping to use the crowd as a sixteenth man to cheer them to victory.
