Match Commentary

82'Analysis from South Africa correspondent John Goliath:

"England absorbed the pressure in the first half, before putting the Springboks under pressure with ball in the hand in the second stanza. While the home team didn?t score a try, they managed to find some space in the wide channels. They won the game after a scrum penalty was converted into three points, following such an attacking move into South Africa's 22. The Boks, though, must be kicking themselves in the change room. They dominated England for most of the match, but just couldn?t get over the tryline. A malfunctioning lineout cost them dearly."
82'England head coach Eddie Jones speaking post-match: "We just stuck at it, did the simple things well, we knew we had to turn them around and make them back-pedal and we did that. When you're in an arm-wrestle, that's what it's like."
