Wales vs South Africa rugby – where and when
Wales vs South Africa
Date : Saturday 2nd June 2018
Time : 22:00 BST
Wales take on South Africa’s Springboks at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington DC, USA. This is a rare special event, the first rugby game of its kind in that stadium.
The game is due to kick-off on Saturday June 2 at 10pm BST, 5pm ET, 2pm PT, 7AM AEST Sunday morning, and 9pm in the evening Johannesburg time.
This will be the second time ever that Wales and South Africa have faced each other at a neutral ground. Previously they played, in 1998, at London’s Wembley Stadium where the Springboks won 28-20.
Warren Gatland’s Welsh squad have been hard at training for the clash which will be captained by Ellis Jenkins. In fact they’ve even been training on the US navy base where the team proved popular with the naval students. This is a one-off test match for the two sides and will be the first professional rugby match held at the 45,423 capacity ground.
The Springbok team is set to be a young one with seven debutants in the squad. Wales have won their last two encounters and so the South Africans will be looking for revenge.
