South Africa have unveiled their fixture list for 2014 and it includes two Tests against Wales in Durban and Nelspruit in June followed by a one-off international against Scotland in Port Elizabeth at the end of the month.

The Springboks will play 13 Tests during the year as well as a non-Test match against a World XV in Cape Town on June 7. The traditional November tour to Europe will include an extra Test against Wales on November 29.

Jurie Roux, the chief executive of the SARU, was upbeat about the upcoming year. "We're very excited about the schedule for the year, which will give Heyneke Meyer and the Springboks a proper opportunity to test themselves a little more than a year away from the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

"The four Tests in November, which will see us take on Ireland, England, Italy and Wales, will provide very good preparation in typical conditions they can expect at the World Cup.

"It will be a tough tour, but I know the Boks will be ready to take on the best from that part of the world."

He explained the extra Test at the end of the autumn tour had been agreed primarily to bring in additional cash for both boards.
