New Zealand gave Wales a 54-16 shellacking last weekend. It was a bruising affair in all senses of the word, Ross Moriarty and skipper Alun Wyn Jones requiring shoulder surgery for injuries sustained in the thick of the action. 

South Africa's ultra-physical approach offers no respite, the Boks themselves looking to make a statement after losing their No. 1 ranking off the back of a poor Rugby Championship showing.

They did end it on a high though, narrowly beating the All Blacks in the final game of the tournament. Cheslin Kolbe, Faf de Klerk and Pieter-Steph du Toit are out of action, but South Africa's enviable strength in depth means their replacements are more than capable.

Wayne Pivac will be relieved to welcome Dan Biggar, Louis Rees-Zammit, Ellis Jenkins and more key men back into the fold, having been unable to field them last weekend.

This should be a cracker, so follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a rugby live stream, including ways that you can watch Wales vs South Africa for FREE.
