MATCH REPORT: Springboks grind out win over Wales to book World Cup final spot

27 Oct 2019

The Boks showed great composure in those final 10 minutes. They had to first defend for a period and then took their chance when it came. Francois Louw's penalty on the ground will be remembered for a long time... as well as Handre Pollard's coolly slotted penalty a few minutes later...

Somehow, by hook or by crook, the Springboks have won and are into the Rugby World Cup final against England!

Pollard, knowing he had the advantage, attempted a long-range drop goal but his effort was too low and hit the bottom padding of the posts...
