Cape Town - South Africa A overcame having lock Ruan Botha red-carded before half-time to defeat the French Barbarians 48-28 in Soweto Friday and clinch a 2-0 series victory.

Botha was sent off after 39 minutes for shoulder charging an opponent at a ruck when international rugby returned to Orlando Stadium in Soweto for the first time since 2010.

Northern Bulls won a Super Rugby semi-final and final there while their Loftus Versfeld home ground in Pretoria was being renovated for the World Cup football tournament.
