World champions South Africa will play all four Home Nations on their end-of-year tour of the northern hemisphere, the Springboks have confirmed.

The first international of the tour will be against Ireland in Dublin on 6 November, at the Aviva Stadium - the newly redeveloped Lansdowne Road.

They then play Wales, Scotland and England on the following Saturdays.

The tour is scheduled to end with a fixture against the Barbarians, at a venue which has yet to be confirmed.

The venue for the Springboks' opening Test of the year, at home to France on 12 June, has yet to be decided.

Newlands in Cape Town is the likely venue but the South African Rugby Union needs to check the availability of the stadium with organisers of the 2010 football World Cup, which is taking place in South Africa.
