WALES v SOUTH AFRICA FREE BETTING PREVIEW Wales haven't beaten a Southern Hemisphere Tier One team since 2008 and are desperate to end a 23-match losing streak. The Welsh went down 16-34 to the All Blacks last week - still leading with 12 minutes to play, before three late tries scored by New Zealand. Prior to that match, Wales lost by five points against Australia in their opener and then only managed to beat Fiji by four points in a disappointing display.

Gatland has made three enforced changes to his run-on team, with Liam Williams notably coming in for injured Northampton wing George North. Gethin Jenkins and Scott Baldwin come into the side too but the absence of hooker Richard Hibbard is a huge blow.

South Africa have notched up the year's sole defeat of New Zealand and also having only ever lost to Wales once in 29 clashes. Since succumbing to Ireland in their first tour fixture, the Springboks have embarked on a European rampage, dishing defeats to England and Italy in successive weeks.

Meyer made eight changes to his team from the one that beat Italy last week. In the backline, Johan Goosen and Bryan Habana return to their clubs Racing Metro and Toulon with Willie Le Roux and Lwasi Mvovo taking their place. The other change is on the wing with Cornal Hendricks returning to the side as JP Pietersen has been dropped out of the squad. The remaining two changes see Bismarck du Plessis and Tendai Mtawarira starting with Strauss and Nyakane dropping to the bench.

Wales are in a terrible run of form against the Springboks, having lost the last sixteen internationals against the Boks. The last time South Africa played Wales, the Boks came back from deficits of 0-17 and 17-30 to triumph 31-30 in Nelspruit.
