Springbok skipper Siya Kolisi leads from the front

South Africa’s dominance at the set-piece and at the breakdown laid the platform for a convincing 30-15 win over Scotland Murrayfield on Saturday.

South Africa wing Makazole Mapimpi scored two tries but it was the tourists’ forward dominance that laid the platform for a resounding 30-15 victory over Scotland in the autumn international series match at Murrayfield on Saturday.

The Springbok pack put in a powerful performance at the set-piece and breakdown in an impressive show of brute force.

Home captain Stuart Hogg scored two excellent tries to become the country’s joint-top all-time try scorer, while fly-half Finn Russell added a penalty and a conversion but also missed a number of simple shots at goal.

The world champion Boks, who trailed 10-8 at half-time, made it back-to-back wins in the autumn series after defeating Wales last weekend and finish against England at Twickenham next weekend, while Scotland will host Japan.
