For the third year in a row Emirates Airline Park (formerly Ellis Park) will host the Springboks home match against New Zealand’s All Blacks (Saturday, 25 July).

The Springboks also played the All Blacks in Johannesburg in 2012 and in 2010 with both matches being played in Soweto.

In 2014 Durban did not host a Rugby Championship match but in 2015 South Africa will play Argentina at Kings Park on Saturday, 8 August.

The 2015 schedule was amended as a result of the condensing of the Rugby Championship competition to three rounds because of the Rugby World Cup, which begins in mid-September.

Springbok Fixtures 2015:

– Saturday 18 July: Australia v South Africa – Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane ( Rugby Championship)
