Springbok fightback stuns Ireland

A stunning second-half fightback from South Africa denied Ireland a first ever series victory on South African soil and set up a tense decider next Saturday in Port Elizabeth.

Match Commentary

81'32-26 End of second half
81'32-26 Penalty goal - Elton Jantjies , South Africa
80'It's up. It's over. And it's over in every sense. Allister Coetzee has his first victory as South Africa coach, and Ireland somehow need to regroup for next week's series decider. Huge comeback from the Boks, who deserve immense credit for the gutsy way they clawed their way back into the match. Roll on Port Elizabeth next week - it's a series decider!
