We’re getting close to the fourth weekend of the 2018 Investec Rugby Championship, and the Boks will have to work hard to redeem themselves when they take on the All Blacks on Saturday in Wellington.

After last weekend’s devastating defeat in the gruelling game against the Wallabies, all eyes will be on the Springboks when they run out onto the field at 9.35am, South African time, on September 15.

And it’s not only this crucial game that will be on the DStv Now app. All six of the remaining games in the series will be streaming on the app, including the Boks facing the Wallabies in Port Elizabeth on September 29 and the All Blacks at Loftus on October 6.
