England take on South Africa at Twickenham on Saturday.

15-6 - South Africa's winning margin in the 2007 World Cup final against England.

58-10 - The Boks produced their record win against England in May 2007, Bryan Habana with two of their seven tries.

9 - England have won all nine of their games in 2016, since the appointment of Eddie Jones as coach last November.
