HIGHLIGHTS | Scotland V South Africa

South Africa made it back to back wins as they held on for a 26-20 win over Scotland in the November Internationals.


South Africa opened the scoring with an early try, but Scotland replied with their first score to level it up. A second Springbok try and penalty followed as the visitors moved out to a 17-7 lead. Scotland pulled three points back with a penalty, before their second try evened things up at 17-17.

A late South African penalty saw the Springboks take a slender 20-17 advantage into the halftime break.

South Africa picked up a yellow card early in the second half, with Scotland kicking the resulting penalty to level matters at 20-20. A Springbok penalty shortly after saw them reclaim the lead, but they missed the following two kicks thereafter. Another penalty inside the final 10 minutes gave the Springboks some breathing room and allowed them to grind out the final 8 minutes to seal the victory.
