South Africa beat Wales at the Millenium Stadium

South Africa beat Wales at the Millenium Stadium

World Cup holders South Africa opened their November international season with a 20-15 victory over European champions Wales at the Millennium stadium on Saturday.

Centres Adrian Jacobs and Jean de Villiers scored tries either side of halftime and Ruan Pienaar, starting at flyhalf for the first time in a test, kicked 10 points.

Wales missed their chance to claim only their second victory against South Africa after trailing 20-3 early in the second half.

Replacement flyhalf James Hook converted four penalties to bring Wales back into contention in front of British and Irish Lions coach Ian McGeechan, who was in the Cardiff crowd, only for the Springboks to prove their qualities in defence and secure the win.

Job done for the Springboks, who seemed to take their foot off the gas in the second half, but the Welsh will rue not being clinical when needed. Coach Warren Gatland was incensed afterwards, saying he laid into his team.

I am absolutely furious we have let ourselves down. If you want to nail the big teams, you have to nail the big moments and we did not do that, he said.
