The match, at the ground renamed the National Stadium after hosting the football World Cup final in July, is now officially an 88,791 seat sell-out, and should all ticket holders attend it will be the largest crowd for a Springbok Test since 1955.

The last 5,000 tickets, for the clash sold out yesterday.
