MATCH REPORT: Boks down France in Durban, clinch series

17 Jun 2017

The Springboks showed great resilience on defence, making 153 tackles, compared to 44 from France.

But their finishing was also far superior, they dominated the contact situations and also bossed the breakdowns.

France looked one-dimensional on attack, while the Boks showed plenty of inventiveness!

17 Jun 2017

SERIES WIN!

The Springboks will take an unassailable 2-0 series lead heading heading into next week's final Test.

SA 37-15 France

17 Jun 2017

78'- TRY to the Springboks as Jantjies goes over under the posts. It was started by Kolisi, who had ripped the ball before launching an attack, and then off-loading to Jantjies...

SA 350m

France 442m

17 Jun 2017

76'- Left wing Virimi Vakatawa almost scores, but he is hauled in from behind by Raymond Rhule.

17 Jun 2017

75'- But with Mbonambi now on, the lineout goes astray and France launch a counter-attack down-field...

17 Jun 2017

75'- The French are pinged for obstruction. It's inside the red zone, so the Boks will set up an attacking lineout five metres out...

17 Jun 2017

73'- Bok sub: Bongi Mbonambi on at hooker for Malcolm Marx.

17 Jun 2017

72'- PENALTIES CONCEDED

SA 6

France 10

17 Jun 2017

72'- That French try came after the Boks failed to handle a restart...

17 Jun 2017

71'- Trinh-Duc's conversion attempt is woeful.

SA 30-15 France

17 Jun 2017

70'- TRY to France!

Centre Damian Penaud gets a score on debut. Finally, some weakness in the Bok defence...

17 Jun 2017

69'- CONVERSION slotted by Jantjies.

SA 30-10 France

17 Jun 2017

Reserve prop Coenie Oosthuizen runs a great line to burst over!

17 Jun 2017

67'- TRY to the Springboks!

17 Jun 2017

67'- But the Boks are back probing inside the red zone...

17 Jun 2017

67'- The Boks have made a mammoth 131 tackles, France only 40.

17 Jun 2017

66'- A chance goes begging for the Springboks as Kolisi loses possession in contact, five metres from the tryline.

Clearly, the fresh legs making a difference there for South Africa!

17 Jun 2017

64'- Several chances made up front and in the backline by Bok coach Allister Coetzee.

17 Jun 2017

64'- Francois Trinh-Duc kicks a PENALTY to get France to double figures.

SA 23-10 France

17 Jun 2017

62'- The South African performance in the second half reminds me of Allister Coetzee's days as Stormers coach - great defending but not building on good starts...

They'll nevertheless win this which is what is important at this stage...

17 Jun 2017

62'- The French are back inside the Bok 22m area, with a penalty advantage...

17 Jun 2017

60'- But all that territory and possession hardly count if you lack invention on attack!

17 Jun 2017

59'- France have enjoyed 69% territory and 66% possession.

17 Jun 2017

57'- METRES MADE ON ATTACK

SA 250m

France 274m

17 Jun 2017

57'- NO TRY!

Replays show Penaud has a foot in touch. It was great scrambling defence from Ross Cronje!

17 Jun 2017

57'- TMO CALL

France centre Damian Penaud is over in the corner but the TMO must check whether he was in touch...

17 Jun 2017

56' - However, more pressure now on the home side as France win a free kick off a South African scrum - right in front of the Bok goalposts...

17 Jun 2017

54'- An intercept from Raymond Rhule brings relief for South Africa, who have survived wave after wave of French attack!

17 Jun 2017

51'- Bok sub: Steven Kitshoff now replaces The Beast at prop.

17 Jun 2017

51'- The French have a penalty in front after The Beast is penalised for tackling a player without the ball.

But have they run out of plans on attack?

17 Jun 2017

50'- This is terrific Springbok defence - the French look horribly one-dimensional on attack...

17 Jun 2017

49' - Remarkably, 27 phases of French attack near the Springbok tryline doesn't reap rewards for Les Bleus.

But they'll get another crack after a South African knock-on...

17 Jun 2017

46' - France have worked their way up into the South African 22m area...

17 Jun 2017

45'- Great maul defence from France sees them win a turnover... before launching an attack from deep...

17 Jun 2017

44'- Another kickable penalty for South Africa - this time for a deliberate knock-on by the French. The Boks will now set up an attacking lineout...
