South Africa takes revenge on Lions

South Africa showed the British and Irish Lions what they were up against, at least in the second half, by winning a 21-0 which allowed an ultimately easy victory (27-9) after being led at the break.

We do not shower the world champions without consequence… A week after the unexpected success of the British and Irish Lions in South Africa (17-22), the Springboks took revenge by reassuring themselves on their large defensive bases, without taking any money. test (27-9). The game was arguably even less exciting than last week, but in this context, only success counted for Cheslin Kolbe and his partners. While the South Africans had faltered in the second half during the first test, this time it was this second act that allowed them to overthrow their opponent. The visitors indeed led 9-6 at the break, after two penalties from Pollard (3rd, 31st) for the locals and three others from Biggar opposite (9th, 16th, 36th).

As of the resumption, Makazole Mapimpi flattened (11-9, 44th), assisted by Lukhanyo Am at the hour mark (18-9, 61st) after a long video viewing of the referee. Then Handré Pollard added three last penalties in the last ten minutes (27-9, 70th, 75th, 80th + 1), validating an almost perfect second period for South Africa who did not even concede a single point. on return from the locker room. It was only the third game of the Boks since their world coronation in Japan, the Covid having deprived the men of Johan Erasmus of play for almost two years (since November 2019).
