Thanks for tuning in!

Next week, the Springboks host the All Blacks in Pretoria, while the Wallabies will tackle Los Pumas in Salta.

29 Sep 2018

MAN-OF-THE-MATCH

Bok flank Pieter-Steph du Toit was again South Africa's standout player. He is massive to their cause!

29 Sep 2018

The Springboks enjoyed a meagre 40% possession and 36% territory but can again be proud of a staunch defensive effort.

The hosts made 129/148 tackles (87%), while the visitors only made 61/71 (86%).

29 Sep 2018

An ugly second half, but the Boks will take the win and run!

However, they will know they have lots to improve on...

29 Sep 2018

FULL-TIME: South Africa 23-12 Australia

29 Sep 2018

80'- The Boks win possession at the gamne's last scrum and Pollard boots it out to end the game...

29 Sep 2018

The official crowd attendance is 41 332.

79' - HANDLING ERRORS

SA 9

Australia 12

29 Sep 2018

78'- A desperate Australia throwing everything at the Springbok defence now... but they just can't find a way through...

29 Sep 2018

78'- PENALTIES CONCEDED

SA 13

Australia 9

29 Sep 2018

76'- BOK SUB

RG Snyman replaces Eben Etzebeth at lock.

FYI: Both Australian locks are also off...

29 Sep 2018

75'- Dyantyi's time in the sin-bin is up and crucially, the Boks did not concede any points during his absence...

29 Sep 2018

74' - TACKLES MADE

SA

116/135 - 86%

Australia

52/62 - 84%

29 Sep 2018

73'- Another Australian handling error scuppers another attacking opportunity... the execution of both teams leaves much to be desired today...

29 Sep 2018

73'- The Wallabies scrum has more than held their own against the Springboks today...

29 Sep 2018

72'- Time is running out for Australia, who win a scrum penalty just outside their own 22m area...

29 Sep 2018

70'- WALLABIES SUB

Nick Phipps replaces Will Genia at scrumhalf.

29 Sep 2018

70'- BOK SUB

Bongi Mbonambi replaces Malcolm Marx at hooker.

29 Sep 2018

69'- Oh dear, a crucial error from Pollard, whose kick goes over the dead-ball line. That could prove vital...

29 Sep 2018

67'- Kitshoff does well to win a turnover for the Boks, who opt to run from deep.

Kolbe sprints up to halfway before Folau tackles him high. The referee obliges by awarding a penalty to South Africa...

29 Sep 2018

67'- A great break out wide from Hooper brings the Wallabies back into the South African 22m area...

29 Sep 2018

66'- But the Wallabies can't cash in as they lose possession in a promising attacking opportunity...

29 Sep 2018

65'- The Boks deserved that yellow card... they simply conceded too many penalties in the red zone...

29 Sep 2018

64'- Yet another penalty for Australia and this time referee Jerome Garces digs in his pocket and gives Aphiwe Dyantyi a YELLOW CARD.

29 Sep 2018

62'- Another penalty for Australia... their captain Michael Hooper asks for a yellow card and I have to say he has a point. The Boks have been leaking penalties inside their own 22m area in the last 10 minutes...

29 Sep 2018

62'- WALLABIES SUB

Brandon Paenga-Amosa on for Folau Fainga'a at hooker.

29 Sep 2018

Wilco Louw replaces Frans Malherbe at tighthead prop.

60'- PENALTIES CONCEDED

SA 10

Australia 8

29 Sep 2018

29 Sep 2018

58'- Bernard Foley has replaced Jack Maddocks for the Wallabies. Foley will slot in at flyhalf...

29 Sep 2018

57'- Folau catches a cross-kick from Beale but the Springbok defence holds firm... however the referee again penalises the home side, who now receive a warning for several penalties conceded near their own tryline...

29 Sep 2018

55'- Another Wallabies penalty at the subsequent maul - this time the visitors opt for an attacking scrum...

29 Sep 2018

54'- A penalty in range for the Wallabies as De Klerk is caught off-side. The visitors opt for an attacking lineout five metres out...

29 Sep 2018

52'- A brilliant lineout steal by Etzebeth brings some relief for the Boks, who can clear from inside their own 22m area...

29 Sep 2018

49'- Both Wallaby props have now been substituted...

It was set up by a great break down the touchline from Dyantyi, who off-loaded to Kolisi, who also made a strong run... but unfortunately Du Toit couldn't hold on...

29 Sep 2018

45'-  PENALTY slotted by Pollard.

SA 23-12 Australia
