Although they famously won the Webb Ellis Cup at the Stade de France in 2007, South Africa’s last four Tests in France against Les Bleus ended in defeat. The last time the Springboks beat the French on their home turf, was in 1997.

The Springboks’ second Test on the tour, against Scotland at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, will take place on Sunday, 17 November and the final encounter will be in Paris on Saturday, 23 November.
