Johannesburg – Discussions were being held with the Welsh Rugby Union about a possible mid-week match against the EP Kings before the Incoming Series in June, the SA Rugby Union (Saru) said on Monday.

The request to play the match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on June 10 was submitted by the Welsh Rugby Union last week, but it had to be approved by Saru’s executive council in order for the fixture to be confirmed.

The Springboks will face Wales on June 14 at Kings Park in Durban and on June 21 at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

The two Tests will be followed by a Springbok Test against Scotland on June 28 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth to close off the tour. – Sapa
