History-maker Kolisi leads South Africa to thrilling win over England

Eddie Jones Clashes With South African Fan In His Search For Red Wine Springboks bounce back to heap more misery on England

Eddie Jones watched his England side crash to a fifth successive defeat after a blistering start gave way to a dramatic collapse as South Africa emerged 42-39 winners from a thrilling first Test in Johannesburg.

The Australian confirmed after the match that their had been an exchange of words with some local fans, who had watched their side come back from a 24-3 deficit early in the match. The unfortunate victim of an attack after England were defeat by Scotland during the Six Nations, this encounter seemed to have a lighter tone.

A shaken South Africa did respond thanks to De Klerk from close range, and that helped spark an incredible fightback as they took the half-time lead. That's what happened, that's what I asked him.

Jones made light of the incident later in his post-match media conference. If someone can help me out, please help me out.

"I think since last week we worked really hard to make sure that we were ready for this game. It was such a great game of rugby and you are anxious about one little conversation in the tunnel about a bottle of red wine".

You could see what England's coaches had been working on in the build-up to the game.

And yet England was rampant in the first 20 minutes before South Africa turned the game completely. "I'm proud of the guys - they showed character and it's something we can take forward".

The Springboks didn't bring the energy required in the early stages and trailed 24-3 after just 18 minutes, with England aggressive and utterly ruthless with ball in hand. "We were almost very, very good, so hopefully we can string a few things together and get that 80 minute performance next week".

Maro Itoje and May plundered late tries for England, but Pollard's boot mean the Springboks had done enough despite a nervy finish.

But South Africa held on for a narrow win as they go into the next test in Bloemfontein next Saturday and the final game of the series at Newlands in Cape Town on June 23.

"It certainly wasn't the start we wanted in our first Test at home and I was anxious because we had a lot of young players against a very experienced England side", said Erasmus. South Africa stole the throw-in - via another impressive debutant, second-rower RG Snyman - and clinched a great start to a three-test series in which both teams are desperate for success. "There was a lot of young guys on the park.it could have gone really bad for us".

Recalled scrumhalf Faf de Klerk began the Boks' comeback with the first try, then Nkosi scored in each corner and fullback Willie le Roux got the fourth for South Africa, which went to halftime 29-27 ahead.

The dream debut continued when he popped up on the opposite wing after a clever run from Le Roux, creating the space for fellow debutant Aphiwe Dyantyi to send him over.
