Springbok winger Cheslin Kolbe's brilliance set up a try for SA 'A' captain Lukhanyo Am during a 17-13 win over the British & Irish Lions in Cape Town on Thursday night.

Kolbe fielded a high ball inside his own half, before counter-attacking where he stepped through a few Lions defenders before putting Am away.

It put the hosts 17-3 ahead after 32 minutes - a lead that proved enough until the end of the game.

WATCH the try in the video clip below:

Kolbe was omnipresent throughout and duly awarded with the man-of-the-match accolade.
