England vs South Africa Head to Head
In head to head Erasmus’s side is far ahead than the English veterans. Springboks won 23 games in the 38 meetings with the Red Rose where England only managed to win 13 games and both teams made two games draw in their so far road.
Last Five Fight
Prior to this England vs South Africa Rugby 2018 Summer Tour, last, they met in November 2016 for the Autumn International fight at Twickenham, England. The game was conquered by the Eddie Jones side by 37-21.
The rest of the last four matches they both made a game draw and the Springboks claimed three games victory in which two in Twickenham and one in their own soil.
Who will be the Key Players?

Though a great loss for the English troops and fans that they miss Dylan Hartley, hope they’ve got their another best rookie Owen Farrell will be the key player of the Saturday game against the Springboks. Hooker Jamie George and Mako Vunipola will also attract the focus of Red Rose fans.
On the Contrary, Flanker Siya Kolisi and Scrum-half Ivan Van Zyl perhaps will be the most focusing player to take the control from the Springboks side in the Summer tour.
England vs South Africa Rugby 2018 Summer Tour Prediction
Don’t need to take so much pressure to predict the Summer tour’s first fight. There is a keen possibility that to win the first fight for Springboks because they are quite incomparable at their own venue against the Red Rose.
South Africa won last 11 matches and make one game draw against England which will bring extra confidence in the June 9 test 2018. So, my prediction for England vs South Africa Rugby 2018 Summer Tour will 30-19 for South Africa.
