Handrè Pollard soon had South Africa in the lead with his accurate penalty kicks, with the Springboks going in for half-time with a healthy 12-6 lead.

South Africa then ran away with the game in the second-half, scoring two brilliant tries through the electric Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe to seal glory.
