Seats still going at Twickenham for mouth-watering clash between the 2007 World Cup finalists.
England face the might of the Springboks at the home of rugby on Saturday with both teams determined to end November with a win.
Martin Johnson’s team have displayed a fresh perspective in their approach to the game which has seen the ball kept in hand and meant the back three of Ben Foden, Chris Ashton and Mark Cueto have flourished. Despite England’s new look, tickets are still on sale for the match that will be last match before the Six Nations Championship.
The new positivity has resulted in a narrow defeat to the All Blacks, a dismantling of the Wallabies and a more prosaic win over Samoa. The signs are good for the side that has reached the last two World Cup finals but they will not be taking their next opponents lightly.
South Africa are the reigning world champions and having suffered a shock defeat to Scotland last weekend they will be hell-bent of setting the record straight. England can expect a bruising encounter from a team that likes to use its physicality to their advantage.
England want to end their Autumn international series on a high and three wins out of four will make for very good reading. The Boks, however, have different ideas.
