The defeat ended the reigning rugby world champions' three-match unbeaten across all competitions having recorded three successive wins.

The Springboks are undefeated in their last three matches played in South Africa, having recorded three consecutive wins since losing to the British and Irish Lions on 27 July 2021.

South Africa assistant coach Deon Davids has insisted that they would not underestimate Wales as they started their preparations for their clash with Wales. 
“The set pieces are always challenging in Test matches, so we will need to deliver quality performances there to build momentum and also stop the opposition in those areas,” said Davids.
“Over and above the scrums, the lineouts and mauls are also going to be important in the match against a very competitive Wales side. 
“In our last game we scored a try toward the end of the match and that put us ahead, so it will be a tough game.”
