Match Commentary

81'20-11 End of second half
80'Full-time analysis from Jamie Braidwood in Cardiff:

"That's a huge result for Wales. Jonathan Davies and Alun Wyn Jones collapsed to the turf at full-time, such was the effort they, and the whole Wales 23, put in today in stopping the Springboks. Jesse Kriel's try in the corner made things interesting, and it got rather tense for a while here in Cardiff, but then Dan Biggar came on to guide the Welsh to a deserved victory, and their first ever November sweep. South Africa were out of sorts, but the strength of this Wales squad cannot be underestimated heading into a massive 2019."
80'Very sad pictures at the end of this match -- Ellis Jenkins, a late replacement at flanker for Wales and who was a strong contender for man of the match, is being stretchered off the field with his leg in an air-cast. You can only hope that looks more serious than it actually is, but Jenkins looks distraught.
