Springboks to play All Blacks in Soweto

The Springboks will return to Soweto for the final home Test of 2012 when they take on newly-crowned world champions New Zealand in the final encounter of the new Rugby Championship which replaced the TriNations.


The Springboks also host England in a three-Test series, as well as take on Australia and Argentina in the enlarged southern hemisphere showpiece in a six-Test home programme. The venues were confirmed by the Executive Council in Cape Town on Thursday.


England arrive in June for what will be the first three-Test tour to South Africa by a single country since New Zealand visited South Africa in 1996.


The Tests will be played in Durban, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.
