Not the greatest game of rugby you will ever see, but the Boks will take the win!

79' - Just a minute to go now as the Boks camp in the French half. 

18 Nov 2017

78' - The Boks have possession. They just have to grind down the time now.

18 Nov 2017

Serin goes from villain to hero as he gets over from in close!

Belleau kicks the conversion and we have a one-point game folks!

18 Nov 2017

67' - The French can try again as they win another penalty for the Boks collapsing their maul. 

18 Nov 2017

66' - A shocker of a lineout by the French. Cronje hoofs downfield and gains 50m for the Springboks. 

18 Nov 2017

65' - And now a penalty to France as Kitshoff is pinged for not releasing. France over that ball quickly. The French set up a line out in the Bok 25m area. 

18 Nov 2017

The Boks are making their time playing against 14 men count here. 

18 Nov 2017

61' - TRY to the Springboks!

Kriel's try stands with the TMO ruling the French player dislodged the ball from Etzebeth's hand, so it was not forward.

Pollard converts

France 10 Springboks 18

18 Nov 2017

62' - Kriel is over and celebrates... the pass might be forward, however. The TMO will take a look. 

18 Nov 2017

61' - A little snipe by Cronje sees Marx and Kolisi surge upfield. Better from the Boks!!!

18 Nov 2017

58' - PENALTY slotted by Pollard!

Finally!

France 10 Springboks 11

18 Nov 2017

YELLOW CARD to Baptiste Serin! France down to 14 as the replacement scrumhalf is sent to the bin. 

18 Nov 2017

57' - After running backward and sideways, Kriel beats a few defenders. He looks to offload to Marx who is tackled early. 

Penalty to the Boks, might be a card as well. 

18 Nov 2017

54' - Would you believe it... he has missed another relatively easy one. That's 11 points left out on the pitch by the Boks so far. 

18 Nov 2017

53' - Penalty to the Boks as a French player prevents a quick throw

Pollard will kick at goal. 

18 Nov 2017

52' - Kitshoff on for Mtawarira 

18 Nov 2017

51' - After a decent start to the second half for the French, it is now the Springboks on the attack of a brilliant rolling maul gained around 30m. 

18 Nov 2017

47' - PENALTY slotted by France

Belleau makes no mistake!

France 10 Springboks 8

18 Nov 2017

45' - France taking the ball through the phases and putting the Springboks under pressure in their own 25m area.

The home side wins a penalty for a high tackle. They will go for goal. 

18 Nov 2017

42' - The Boks win the attacking lineout, the maul goes to ground and Nigel Owens has ruled a scrum to France saying the Boks took the maul to ground. 

And now a scrum penalty to the French will allow them to relieve the pressure. 

18 Nov 2017

41' - Early penalty to the Springboks as the French are penalized for trying to stop a Bok maul. Pollard will set up a lineout. That was in his range but he has missed with three already tonight. 

18 Nov 2017

40' - Pollard kicks off for the Boks and starts the second half. 

18 Nov 2017

Second half about to get underway in Paris

18 Nov 2017

Springboks with 53% of possession and territory in that half so far. 

17 missed tackles is a bit of an issue. 

18 Nov 2017

HALF-TIME IN PARIS

France 7 Springboks 8

The half started promisingly for the Boks, but again, too much aimless kicking, some dodgy tackling and woeful passing. And the French are just as bad!


18 Nov 2017

40' - Another penalty to the Boks and Pollard will try again.

This is from 45m and straight in front.

The Bok pivot again pushes his effort out to the right.

And that is half-time.

18 Nov 2017

37' - Pollard misses out to the right. That wasn't a difficult kick by his standards

18 Nov 2017

36' - Penalty for the Boks. This is kickable and Pollard is having a shot at goal as the rain starts to fall in Paris.
