Big crowd for Ellis Park clash

Organisers are hoping for a capacity crowd for the third Test between the Springboks and France at Ellis Park on Saturday.

By Thursday afternoon, 52,000 tickets had been sold for the match. The stadium's capacity is 62,567.

The overall South African record for a Test match is also held by the stadium when over 100,000 supporters watched the Springboks and the British & Irish Lions in 1955.
