WALES will face South Africa in Washington this summer ahead of their two-Test tour to Argentina.

Warren Gatland’s side will face the Springboks in the US capital at RFK Stadium on June 2 before they face the Pumas in San Juan and Santa Fe the following weekends.

"We are really pleased to add a third fixture to our summer tour schedule and we hope it will be another great test match between ourselves and the Springboks," said the Wales head coach.

"This summer is a vital period for us as we continue the countdown to the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and another fixture helps us along the way in our preparation and enables us to test ourselves further.

“It will be a great way to start the summer tour before we head further south to Argentina later in the month."
