A win is a win, but an error-ridden performance from South Africa. Their scrum remains a weak link and the Springbok finishing was notably poor today.

The scoreline is a bit flattering and credit must be given to Italy who played with great passion.

The Boks end their year-end tour against Wales in Cardiff next Saturday.

Join us again then for more interactive commentary!

FULL-TIME: Italy 6-22 South Africa

22 Nov 2014

80' - CONVERSION by Pollard.

22 Nov 2014

79' - Bryan Habana scores against the run of play. Brilliant vision from Le Roux deep inside his own half. He off-loaded to Pollard who broke through to find Habana on the outside...

22 Nov 2014

79' - TRY to the Springboks!

22 Nov 2014

77' - Pollard fails to find touch after the Boks win a penalty deep inside their own 22. Italy now throwing everything at them on attack...

22 Nov 2014

76' - Silly from Italy as they kick possession away while on the attack in the red zone. That puts paid to their chances...

Reserve flyhalf Luciano Orquera is the culprit.

22 Nov 2014

76' - Italy ferociously attacking inside the Bok 22m area...

22 Nov 2014

75' - Italy win a tighthead against the Springbok scrum on halfway. The referee then penalises the Boks.

One last chance for the hosts perhaps...

71' - But it's a messy lineout from South Africa... sigh...

22 Nov 2014

69' - A brilliant clearance from Le Roux brings play up to halfway and relief for South Africa...

22 Nov 2014

68' - But it's a messy lineout from Italy. They knock on to bring relief for South Africa. Parisse should have opted for 3 points there...

22 Nov 2014

67' - Italy, inside the red zone, win a penalty close to the touchline.

Parisse opts for a five metre lineout...

22 Nov 2014

66' - Italy get an attacking lineout just outside the Bok 22m area. They must score now if they are to cause an upset...

22 Nov 2014

65' - As was the case in the Test against Australia at Newlands, the Springbok substitutes appear to have made a massive impact here today.

22 Nov 2014

Italy prop Martin Castrogiovanni is now off, replaced by Dario Chistolini.

22 Nov 2014

56' - Haimona's effort narrowly misses, it goes just under the cross-bar...

55' - Italy win a penalty just inside the Springbok half. Haimona will line up a long-range effort...

22 Nov 2014

52' - Bismarck immediately gets hot under the collar and is involved in a scuffle with an Italian. He is warned by referee Garces...

22 Nov 2014

52' - Italian penalty at the ensuing scrum. Another chance gone begging for South Africa...

22 Nov 2014

51' - BOK SUB: Strauss off, replaced by Bismarck.

22 Nov 2014

51' - And the Boks stuff up the lineout and lose possession.

22 Nov 2014

50' - Penalty to the Springboks after Italy collapse the Springbok driving maul. Jean de Villiers opts against 3 points and Lambie sets up a five-metre lineout...

22 Nov 2014

50' - A dominant driving maul from the Boks brings them back onto the Italian 22m line...

22 Nov 2014

48' - A terrific kick up field from Haimona brings massive relief for Italy. Another chance gone begging for the Boks after a concerted period of attack inside the Italian 22m area...

22 Nov 2014

47' - Reinach still makes silly errors. Just like last week when he kicked ahead instead of kicking out after the hooter had sounded...

22 Nov 2014

45' - The Boks win a kickable penalty. But Reinach decides to take a quick tap and then kicks it away. Very silly there from the Bok scrumhalf. He clearly was not thinking straight there...
