South Africa vs Wales rugby: Date, live stream, TV channel kick-off time and team news for international
Check out how to watch South Africa v Wales in the Summer Internationals, including TV details and more.
Wales get their three-match tour of South Africa in the Summer Internationals underway on Saturday the at Loftus Versfeld, in Pretoria, in what looks a stern test.
North, who has spent most of his career on the wing, will bolster the midfield alongside Nick Tompkins as he returns from a serious knee injury that ruled him out of the British & Irish Lions tests against the Springboks last year.
Flanker Dan Lydiate also makes his first appearance in more than 12 months after recovering from injury and will form a back-row with debutant Reffell and No 8 Taulupe Faletau.
They've never won a game against their hosts in South Africa – losing in all of their 10 previous attempts – and have come out on top in just six of the 37 games between the two nations.
Those numbers do not make pretty reading for Wayne Pivac, whose side endured a hugely disappointing 2022 Six Nations campaign.
The Springboks added a home series victory against the Lions to their 2019 World Cup triumph last summer and will be keen to impress the home support in front of what is expected to be a big crowd in Pretoria.
It would be an awesome feeling going out there and creating that history. The boys are ready, the boys are raring to go, and we can't wait to get stuck into it."
Beard is likely to be among a number of British and Irish Lions on last year's South Africa tour featuring in Wales' starting line-up.
That experience, albeit in games behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, will undoubtedly be beneficial for Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.
Winning even one of the three Tests in South Africa over the next month would mean that Pivac's side can come away from this tour with some positivity, but that is certainly easier said than done.
