Wales vs South Africa Autumn nations match – how to stream or watch on TV

Wales look to bounce back from their Autumn Nations Series drubbing at the hands of New Zealand as they take on South Africa on Saturday.

The hosts take on World Champions South Africa just seven days after their 54-16 defeat to New Zealand.

However, unlike in that game, recent history favours Wales when it comes to South Africa.

Wales have toppled the Springboks four times in a row at home, with South Africa last departing the Welsh capital victorious eight years ago.

‘Wales will be ready for South Africa’

“We are always trying to develop our game,” said centre Davies, who took over captaincy duties when Alun Wyn Jones went off injured after just 18 minutes of the New Zealand encounter.

“The one thing this team always shows is that the more time we spend together, the better we get.

“We will dust ourselves off, come in on Monday and look to build and get a result next week at home.

“It’s the fine details – not moving forward on kicks, executing our exits correctly and not putting pressure on ourselves.

“The way South Africa play, they want to put pressure on you. For us, it’s making sure we build and play in the right areas of the field.

“Look, you work extremely hard to get a result, and when you don’t get it, it does hurt.

“The beauty of it now is we have another opportunity next week to put the wrongs right. That is what this group will want to show next week.”

How to watch Wales vs South Africa

Usually, Wales’ games would also be shown live on S4C, however, with Amazon offering a Welsh language service, there will be no live coverage on the free-to-air channel.

Highlights of all Wales matches will be shown on the evening of the test, with the South Africa highlights starting at 8.30pm on Saturday.
