Kick Off: 1430, 02/12/2017

Stadium: Principality Stadium


Wales will be without several players based in England for Saturday’s clash with South Africa and that could make them vulnerable.

With the Springboks buoyed by wins in France and Italy, they will be fired up to avenge last year’s 27-13 loss in Cardiff.

The visitors look much better prepared this time and appeal at 91/100 to prevail by more than three points in our Wales vs South Africa betting tips.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

Having failed to impress against Australia and Georgia, Wales acquitted themselves quite well when going down 33-18 to New Zealand last weekend.

Warren Gatland’s side managed to keep Beauden Barrett quiet and were in contention until gifting the All Blacks an interception try.

However, that bruising encounter may have left its mark on the hosts, who now have additional selection problems.

Gloucester back Owen Williams, Harlequins centre Jamie Roberts, Exeter prop Tomas Francis and Bath fly-half Rhys Priestland all bow out as this clash falls outside World Rugby’s autumn international window.

We’re backing the Boks to take advantage and they are 13/20 to oblige by any margin in the Wales vs South Africa odds.

A Look At South Africa’s Betting Odds

South Africa were in disarray when beaten by Wales 12 months ago, having previously lost 37-21 to England before an embarrassing 20-18 defeat in Italy.

Although still prone to the odd blip, including a 57-0 thrashing by New Zealand in September and a 38-3 drubbing by Ireland at the start of this tour, the Springboks have been much improved in 2017.

France were hammered three times over the summer and only the All Blacks got the better of them in the Rugby Championship.

An 18-17 triumph over Les Bleus got the Boks back on track after that Dublin debacle and there was an air of authority about last week’s 35-6 revenge win over the Azzurri in Padova.

Wales scrum-half Gareth Davies admitted: “We all know what South Africa bring – they are very big and physical.

“They have improved a lot in the last 12 months and had some big victories in the last couple of months. It is going to be a very tough game.”
