2020 Autumn International Wales v South Africa
Wales v South Africa, Wales will face the 2019 Rugby World Cup winners South Africa at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 28th November during the 2020 Autumn Internationals. The two teams will compete for the Prince William Cup, which was created by the WRU in 2007 to celebrate 100 years of rugby between Wales and South Africa.
Of the 36 matches played between the two sides, South Africa have won 29, with one draw and 6 wins for Wales. They are also the only team to win an away match between the sides, having won 15 times in Wales. South Africa have won all ten of their home games. In recent encounters Wales have been victorious in narrow wins at the Principality Stadium, however the Springboks narrowly beat them 19-16 in the Rugby World Cup Semi-Final in Japan.
Heartache has stalked Wales at recent World Cups – Sam Warburton’s red card in an agonising 2011 semi-final loss to France, and then an injury-ravaged side’s late defeat by South Africa in 2015’s quarter-final. The 2019 defeat was another painful chapter to add to their story – with more than a passing resemblance to that match against the Springboks four years ago – and yet it was so close to being a different story. In a tight contest which suited the Springboks, Wales struggled to impose themselves on a game in which the ball seemed to be eternally airborne or moving slowly at the bottom of a ruck. In the end the only thing separating the side was a 76 minute penalty from Handre Pollard which snatched victory for South Africa setting them up in a Final showdown against England, in which they ran out worthy winners.
