Wales set to an­nounce Bok Test in USA

Observer on Saturday - - Sport -

CAPE TOWN - The Spring­boks could face Wales in the USA later this year, a re­port in­di­cates. Ac­cord­ing to Welsh pub­li­ca­tion, Wales On­line, the Welsh are "on the verge" of con­firm­ing the Test against South Africa.

The match is likely to be played on June 2 in Washington DC - a week be­fore the ‘Boks’ host Eng­land in a three-Test se­ries in South Africa. It will also be a week be­fore Wales start a two -Test se­ries against Ar­gentina.

The first week­end of June clashes with Su­per Rugby but with no South African teams tak­ing part that week­end, it would en­able the ‘Boks’ to head to Amer­ica be­fore they tackle Eng­land.

Mean­while, Sport24 un­der­stands that the Spring­boks are likely to face Wales in Cardiff on their year-end tour later in 2018.

Wales have beaten the Spring­boks in their past two en­coun­ters of which both were con­tested in Cardiff - 27-13 in 2016 and 24-22 in 2017.Sport24
