Boks to play Scots in 2013

The Springboks will host an understrength Scotland side as well as Samoa and one other Test nation in June next year.

According to the Weekend Argus, the Scotland side that plays South Africa will exclude players selected for the British & Irish Lions tour to Australia. The Lions’ tour is also scheduled to take place in June 2013.

The Boks are also set to tackle Samoa during this period, a side that so nearly knocked them out of the 2011 World Cup at the group stage.

The Boks will face one other opponent next June, but it’s yet to be determined whether it will be Fiji or Italy.
