Romania replaced original qualifiers Spain at the tournament after the latter were found guilty of fielding an ineligible player during two Rugby World Cup 2023 qualification matches.

The sides will do battle at the Matmut Atlantique stadium in Bordeaux.

Kick-off time is yet to be confirmed.

The Springboks, who lifted the Webb Ellis Cup for a third time in Japan in 2019 under the captaincy of Siya Kolisi, have been drawn in Pool B at the 2023 World Cup in France alongside Scotland, Ireland, Romania and, at the time of publishing, a yet-to-be-determined Asia/Pacific side.
