England last visited South Africa in 2012 when the Boks won the first two Tests, while the final encounter ended in a draw.

England have not won a Test in South Africa since the two teams clashed in Bloemfontein in 2000. Out of the 13 previous Tests between the Boks and England in South Africa, the visitors have won three, while one ended in a draw.

However, England will go into the series as favourites, having won 22 out of 23 Tests since Eddie Jones was appointed head coach.

June Series 2018:
9 June: South Africa v England – Emirates Airline Park, Johannesburg
16 June: South Africa v England – Toyota Stadium, Bloemfontein
23 June: South Africa v England – DHL Newlands, Cape Town
Kick-off times to be confirmed.
