Match Commentary

81'+142-39 End of second half
80'So South Africa take a 1-0 lead into next week's Test match in Bloemfontein, which you can follow live here with ESPN.

Stay with us for all the reaction, including John Goliath's verdict from Ellis Park.
80'Big win! South Africa steal the ball at the England lineout. One final insult for this England team who could barely do anything right in the final hour of the match. It's booted into touch, Rassie Erasmus has a victory and the Siya Kolisi era as captain begins with a remarkable, astonishing, turbulent, captivating victory. That was spell-binding stuff in so many ways, and absolutely staggering in so many other ways!
