What are the key questions of the tour?

For Wales, head coach Wayne Pivac believes his side face “probably the ultimate challenge” as they face world champions South Africa away from home at altitude.

Wales are on the back of a terrible Six Nations campaign that ended in a dismal home defeat to Italy three months ago, while Pivac guided Wales to two fifth places of the championship in his three years to date.

They surprised many with their performance in the first Test against the Boks but simply failed to secure victory as South Africa took it with a penalty from the game’s final kick.

We look at the key questions facing England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland as they embark on three-test tours of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina respectively, live on sky sports this summer.
