The Springboks dominated almost all aspects of the game and at the end won rather comfortably. Newcomers, Andries Coetzee and Ross Cronje proved unstoppable at times, but a collective effort at the end of the day sees the Boks back on the winning track.

Jeremy Papier rates the South African players!

15 Andries Coetzee:
An outstanding performance by the newcomer. His kicking was excellent and his decision-making on the counter attack. He also gave the Boks front-foot ball. 
9/10

14 Raymond Rhule:
Not much time and space with the ball, but he showed excellent defensive skills. He committed a few handling errors, yet he had an excellent game. 
5/10

13 Jesse Kriel:
Decision-making at times let him down, but an overall good came. Carried well and he was solid in defence. 
7/10

12 Jan Serfontein:
Had a quiet first half but became more involved as the game carried on. Scored a try in the 67th minute.
6/10

11 Courtnall Skosan:
First real touch late in the game, not much opportunity on the ball but looked for work.
5/10

10 Elton Jantjies:
Excellent performance from the Springbok No.10. He took charge of the game, his positioning was good and his overall decision-making excellent.
9/10

9 Ross Cronje:
Great performance by the veteran Lions scrumhalf, showing why he is the best man for the job. Cool, calm and collective.
9/10

8 Warren Whiteley:
Solid performance from the skipper, registering his first test win as the South African captain. Packed down on the flank at scrum time though, which was weird.
6/10

7 Teboho Mohoje:
Good early start, carrying the ball with intent and he was defensively solid.
7/10

6 Siyamthanda Kolisi:
Good carries early on. However, he missed a try-scoring opportunity when he passed too early. Got a turnover, but no real work on the ground.
7/10

5 Francois Mostert:
He had an excellent performance. He worked hard off the ball, leading the defensive charges. Not many carries, but good line-out work.
8/10

4 Eben Etzebeth:
Excellent defensive performance, even though he did not carry the ball as much as you would have liked.
8/10

3 Frans Malherbe:
Did not offer much on attack, made a few tackles but the scrums swayed both ways.
4/10

2 Malcolm Marx:
Explosive carries early in the game and impressed with his defensive work. 
8/10

1 Tendai Mtawarira:
Struggled with in scrums time and again. Had a few carries, but did not gain much ground. 
4/10

Replacements: 

16 Bongi Mbonambi (On for Marx, 64th min):
