An unexpectedly brilliant series comes to a head at DHL Stadium, as Jacques Nienaber turns to his battle-hardened A-team to get the Boks over the line against a Wales side that's provided nearly all of the standout moments of the contest. Wayne Pivac's men have already made history, but can they now become the first ever Wales team to win a Test series on South African soil? Read on as our guide explains how to get a South Africa vs Wales live stream and watch the Summer International rugby third Test online from anywhere.

When Dan Biggar and Co. set out on tour three weeks ago, nobody - not South Africa fans and certainly not Wales fans - would have expected there to be only four points between the two sides at this stage of the series. But Wales have performed heroically, and might well be two Tests to the good were it not for some questionable refereeing in the opener.

Having overcome a shoulder issue the skipper will start, as will Dillon Lewis, who's shaken off an elbow injury. Josh Adams' late try set up Wales' historic victory last weekend, and the Cardiff man takes the place of Alex Cuthbert, who's dealing with his own shoulder problem.

Nienaber has made 10 changes to the side that lost on Saturday, with Eben Etzebeth, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Handre Pollard and Jaden Hendrikse and Trevor Nyakane the only players to keep a hold of their shirts. It's largely the same side that got the better of England in the World Cup final, and after last weekend's experiment, there's an overarching sense that this Test will be the true test of how these teams stack up.

A Wales victory would complete a clean sweep for the northern hemisphere, so follow our guide as we explain how to get a South Africa vs Wales third Test live stream wherever you are.
