South Africa Springboks vs Samoa Quadrangular Tournament Final
Time: 17:15 local, 15:15 GMT,

Date: 22nd June 2013
AT: Pretoria
Head to Head

The Boks have never lost to Samoa and in South Africa have won 4 from 4. They won 35-8 back in 2007 and 60-18 in 2002 the only meetings in SA this century. The sides have met elsewhere though and in 2011 the Boks battled for a 13-5 win in the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

South Africa host Samoa in Saturday’s quadrangular tournament final in Pretoria looking to make it eight wins on the bounce against the islanders since 1995.

That was the year the Springboks won the World Cup at the first attempt and the last meeting between the countries was at the group stage of the 2011 World Cup with South Africa emerging 13-5 victors, the narrowest winning margin against their opponents.

Both sides go into the tournament decider - which is being shown live on Sky Sports 1 HD at 4.15pm (BST) - unbeaten after wins over Italy and Scotland.

The hosts have made at least two changes to their pack but will wait until the day before to make decisions on the fitness of skipper Jean de Villiers and flanker Willem Alberts.

The Boks had to come from behind to beat Scotland in Nelspruit and bookmakers are only giving the Samoans a 14 point start at Loftus on Saturday.

Samoa have made just a single change to the side that beat Italy 39-10 having beaten Scotland by 10 points the week before. They were very impressive against the Italians especially given that there was plenty of support for Italy at +8.5 but it was one way traffic virtually from the off.

Former Munster centre De Villiers has a chest injury, while flanker Alberts must also pass a fitness test on a side strain if he is to feature.

Jan Serfontein will earn his first start for the Springboks should De Villiers be ruled out as one of up to four changes from the 30-17 win over Scotland.

Siya Kolisi will replace Alberts if the Sharks back row is absent, while openside Francois Louw does return after getting married last week.

Second row Flip van der Merwe is listed to start in the second row for Juandre Kruger, who drops to the bench.
So’oialo returns

Samoa have made one predictable change, with full-back James So’oialo, a late injury withdrawal from the side that beat Italy 39-10 in Nelspruit last weekend, returning in place of Brando Va’aulu, who drops to the bench.
