Boks to tackle France in Paris


  • 26 Jul 2013

The Springboks will return to the scene of their 2007 World Cup triumph when they play France at the Stade de France on 23 November.

This encounter, the final match of the Springboks’ season, will be the first Test against France in Paris since 2005. The French Rugby Federation confirmed the venue for this Test on Friday.

Although they famously won the Webb Ellis Cup at the Stade de France in 2007, South Africa’s last four Tests in France against Les Bleus ended in defeat. The last time the Springboks beat the French on their home turf, was in 1997.

The Test in Paris will conclude the Outgoing Tour for 2013. The Springboks’ three-Test trip starts against Six Nations champions Wales in Cardiff on 9 November. The second Test on the tour, against Scotland at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, will take place on 17 November.
