The Springbok Women will play three away Tests against Wales, Spain and Italy in November.
It will mark the national side’s first tour since the 2014 Women’s World Cup and follows an SA Select Women’s tour to England last November.
The schedule will see them face the UK Armed Forces in London on 2 November, Wales at Cardiff Arms Park on the 10th, Spain in Valencia on the 17th, and Italy at the Chersoni Stadium on the 25th.
The squad will assemble in Stellenbosch on 21 October for a 10-day training camp before departing for Wales on the 30th.
‘This tour will serve as a good learning curve for the players, while at the same time allowing us to measure where we are as a team and what we have to do to compete successfully on the international stage,’ coach Stanley Raubenheimer said.
‘It will also be highly beneficial with an eye on attempting to qualify for the 2021 Women’s World Cup, because the more we compete internationally, the more we will learn and the better prepared we will be.’
