It's a double-header in London, with the Springboks v Wales followed by Barbarians v Fiji.


There’s something a little different about Saturday’s tussle between two old rivals because it’s taking place in the unlikely surroundings of Twickenham. We can still expect the usual no-holds-barred contest, however, and this guide explains how to watch a South Africa v Wales live stream wherever you are in the world – including details of how use a VPN to watch your usual TV service from overseas.

Warren Gatland’s men taking on the Springboks isn’t the only rodeo in town, either, because Twickenham is also hosting Barbarians v Fiji a few hours later. That means you can stick around for a midsummer double bill of rugby courtesy of broadcasters around the world.

There’ll be plenty of star names in action over the course of the afternoon, with Liam Williams back for Wales, plenty of World Cup winners in the Springboks side, Semi Radradra and Waisea Nayacalevu lining up for Fiji, and Gael Fickou, Sam Whitelock and Danny Care part of a star-studded Barbarians XV.
