MATCH REPORT: Springboks 23-19 Wales

17 Oct 2015

Well done to South Africa, with a moment of brilliance at the end winning the game at the death.

Credit also to a courageous Wales, who had to make 189 tackles - 88 more than their opponents!

The Boks will now face the winner of the All Blacks v France match later tonight.

There is however marked improvement needed from the error-prone Springboks if they are to win this tournament.
