England defeat World Champion South Africa in a thriller – Rugby News
England celebrates a penalty decision of their confirmed victory 28-27 over South Africa.
Marcus Smith kept patience for the last-gasp penalty because England avenged their 2019 World Cup final by pitching South Africa 28-27 in autumn.
Smith kicked the decisive points in the last moment when over a minute left, and that was to prevent the completing comeback victory of springboks on Saturday afternoon at Twickenham.
At some times, England looked like a hunted team that was ready for defeat because they gave a penalty after penalty, and after the crumble of their lead due to Pollard, they were powerless to stop the momentum shift.
In the second half, after more time, they were scored 22 after the hard fighting, and at least Pollard kicked the Springboks ahead in the 64th minute.
