Match Commentary

81'That's the end of of our commentary. A match report will appear here soon.
81'Analysis from our reporter Jamie Braidwood at Murrayfield: "The second half was nowhere near as entertaining as the first, but South Africa will not care a jot after securing a hugely impressive away win. The Springboks successfully shut Scotland's attack down after the break, limiting the home side to just one second-half penalty, and defended bravely inside their own 22 in the final stages to protect their win."
