South Africa vs Wales LIVE rugby: Latest results and updates from the crucial Cape Town test


Wales and South Africa meet in Cape Town to decide their summer series after a thrilling first two games, both of which had spot-on results and each ended in victory.

After a dismal Six Nations tournament which saw Italy wrong end on their first win in the competition in seven years, expectations were low for Wales as they took on the reigning world champions but Wayne Pivac’s men came out on top tantalizingly close to the start of the series before finally claiming their first-ever victory over the Springboks on South African soil a week ago.

The fact that just one of the last eleven clashes between the sides has been decided by a double-digit win suggests another thriller is on deck at the DHL Stadium.

Regardless of the result in Cape Town, the tour is viewed as an unqualified success from a Welsh perspective and Dan Biggar has led it superbly despite the absence of a number of key players through injury. If he can lead them to a truly remarkable streak, his legacy will be further secured.

South Africa 3-0 Wales, 6 minutes

This is an electric starter from South Africa. Again they steal the ball in the air and Eben Etzebeth stomps around Nick Tompkins threatening to burn the center on the outside. A stray pass ends the movement but Wales look shaken by that quick start.


PENALTY! SOUTH AFRICA 3-0 Wales (Handre Pollard penalty, 5 mins)

It’s over. South Africa denied five but got three.


NO TRY! South Africa 0-0 Wales, 4 minutes

foot in touch! It was a nice diagonal push from Am that seemed perfectly weighted, but the final jump is aggressive and pulls Mapimpi into contact as he collects.

Back to the penalty, which goes directly in front of the post because of not rolling away.


To attempt? Is Makazole Mapimpi over or has his boot touched the touchline?

A clever kick from Lukhanyo Am and he may have put his wing up…


South Africa 0-0 Wales, 3 minutes

First attack ball for both sides. Bongi Mbonambi punches Lood de Jager in the stern and then climbs into the chariot while his burly fellows stare to tears. Wales is stopping it.

De Jager’s next involvement is a hard attack down the middle and Wales fail to roll away before the next jerk as the pressure builds…


South Africa 0-0 Wales, 2 minutes

Handre Pollard produces his first Up-and-Under, which Liam Williams claims finger-wagging. Lukhanyo Am collects and Williams is knocked off his feet as he grabs the center’s legs.

South Africa takes on the Welsh 22.


South Africa 0-0 Wales, 1 minute

An instant first touch for Josh Navidi, who tracks the flight of offense and makes his way to the first meaningful charge.

Wales then recovers the ball in the air. Kieran Hardy goes longer with his second boxkick.



The third test is running!
