Springboks Lead Against Wales at Half Time

Today’s Castle Incoming Series Test decider between Wales and South Africa (who both have one win behind them) kicked off with very emotional renditions of the two countries’ anthems… and an incredibly warm welcome for Eben Etzebeth and Bongi Mbonambi. This is Eben’s 100th Test for South Africa (only the seventh national player in history to celebrate 100 caps), and Bongi’s 50th!

Springboks vs Wales First Half

At half time in Cape Town, the Springboks were leading against Wales 17-8, having scored two tries to one.


Within 15 minutes of kick-off, Handré Pollard had pushed South Africa ahead with 10-0 – by first scoring a penalty penalty goal from right in front, followed by the first try of the Test which he then converted! Here’s the moment Pollard scored the first try of the Test:

South Africa’s next try – after a powerful maul from the Springboks – came fittingly from Mbonambi – scoring his 11th try for South Africa in his 50th Test. Pollard added the extras to get South Africa to 17-8 by half-time.
