Scotland to get first crack at newly crowned world champions South Africa

Georgia will also face South Africa for only the second time following two Springboks Tests against the Scots.

RUGBY WORLD CUP champions South Africa will face Scotland twice and play a one-off match with Georgia in July next year.

The Springboks secured a famous victory over England in a surprisingly one-sided final in Japan last month, Rassie Erasmus’ side running out 32-12 winners. 

By contrast, Scotland failed to qualify from their pool after losing to Ireland and Japan.

The Scots will head to South Africa for a pair of fixtures on 4 and 11 July, with the Springboks also scheduled to host Georgia the following week.

While South Africa and Scotland have met many times, the Boks have faced Georgia only once – in a pool match at the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

Georgia won one of their four games in Japan, beating Uruguay 33-7.
