The South Africans won clearly at Twickenham against a very tender Rose (27-13) fifteen men. A year before the World Cup in France (September 8 to October 28, 2023) the English have very few benchmarks.

South Africa thrashed Twickenham this Saturday, imparting a lesson in realism and skill to Ross’ fifteen. A week later A wonderful draw against the All Blacks (25-25), the English hoped to make this remake of the 2019 World Cup final a confirmation of a comeback. They failed in this ambition and Eddie Jones must be asking himself more questions than before the meeting.

Stronger on impact, the Springboks quickly set the pace of the match with axial charges, allowing them to settle into the opposition camp. With a great drop, Damien Willemse turned this physical superiority into points (31, 3-6).

But South Africa didn’t just play in a steamroller register. With the English defense concentrated in the middle of the field, wide spaces opened up outside the box, which Kurt-Lee Arendse exploited brilliantly, and Willemse initiated a wonderful recovery to finish with a brutal framing of Marcus Smith (33, 3-11).

A red card without consequenceAfter the break, South Africa continued their push: Willemse added a new clinical drop (42, 3-17) and Eben Etzebath scored strongly in the middle of a frustrated English corps (50, 6-24). The Boks risked a footing when substitute Thomas du Toit dug his shoulder into the face of Luke Cowan-Dickie and was logically sent off (61st).

Finally, the English did not know how to take advantage of it: a week after a maddening comeback against the Blacks, Henry Slade made an effort to create a semblance of hope in the stands (71, 13-27). But the defeat leaves the Springboks in 14th place In Ireland (19-16) and so on In France (30-26), et al Great success in Italy (63-21), and they end their tour with an impressive win at the Temple of Rugby.
