31 Oct 2015

A very disappointing game at the end of the day. The Springboks were more expansive at times, but went to sleep in the second half.

77' - Montoya is forced into touch. The Boks have a lineout in their own 22m area. 

30 Oct 2015

Still no sign of Rudy Paige... mind boggling.

30 Oct 2015

71' - The Pumas supporters are in full voice!

30 Oct 2015

It seems Serfontein is at inside centre and De Allende has moved to the wing... strange decision by Heyneke Meyer. 

30 Oct 2015

69' - Pollard's penalty hits the upright! The Pumas try to run out of their 22m area but concede yet another penalty.  Pollard now tries to set up a lineout but somehow misses touch and the Pumas clear downfield. 

30 Oct 2015

68' - Penalty to the Boks as the Pumas backline are offside. Pollard will kick at goal. Boo's ring out around the ground.

Matfield waves to the crowd.

30 Oct 2015

30 Oct 2015

60' - Yet another penalty to the Boks as the Pumas take out a rolling maul. Pollard sets up a lineout 5m from the Pumas line. Their discipline has been poor tonight.

30 Oct 2015

57' - Pumas still taking it to the Boks, they are just making crucial errors at times... again, they knock-on and gift the ball to South Africa. Pienaar kicks ahead... ineffectively. 

30 Oct 2015

55' - Poor execution from the Pumas as they knock-on in the lineout. Errors creeping in now from both sides.

30 Oct 2015

30 Oct 2015

HALF-TIME IN LONDON

That's half-time! The Boks lead quite comfortably, but they have not had it all their own way. Both teams have been prepared to give the ball some air which is always great to see.

South Africa 16 Argentina 0
