The reported marquee fixture between the Springboks and relegated Premiership side Saracens looks unlikely to take place according to reports in England.
Saracens – who were relegated after being found to have repeatedly breached the Premiership salary cap – had plans to arrange fixtures against foreign opposition during their 2020-21 campaign.
It was reported last month that the club was in talks with SA Rugby to arrange a blockbuster clash against the Springboks in London next year.
However, according to the Daily Mail, the fixture may not take place.
Saracens are still hopeful of arranging matches against the South African Vodacom Super Rugby franchises to bolster their fixture list and keep their squad match-fit.
