SOUTH AFRICA v WALES BETTING PREVIEW South Africa responded well from their 34-32 opening Pool B defeat against Japan to win three matches in succession against Samoa, United States and Scotland to top the standings. The Springboks have conceded just a single try in their last three matches

South Africa's boss Heyneke Meyer will be without the experienced Victor Matfield, while Adrian Strauss, Jannie du Plessis, Ruan Pienaar and Pat Lambie have all been recalled to the bench. JP Pietersen is restored on the right wing with Bryan Habana moving to the No. 11 jersey.

Wales defeated hosts England  when a stirring comeback saw them turn a ten point deficit into a 28-25 victory and although they were beaten by Australia on their way to finishing second in Pool A, they will still be pleased with their campaign so far. They have conceded only two tries in their entire pool campaign.

Wales’ World Cup campaign has been ravaged by injuries, with almost one fifth of the original squad now sidelined. Coach Warren Gatland has opted to go with Morgan at centre ahead of James Hook, while George North returns to the wing, Dan Lydiate and Gareth Jenkins are back in the pack as Justin Tipuric and Paul James make way.

The Welsh saw off South Africa in a friendly at Cardiff when the South African side were depleted on that occasion as the fixture fell outside of the World Rugby match window, leaving them without their overseas-based players. Anyway, in recent years this fixture has been dominated by the Springboks, who won six straight meetings before that.
