  • Description

    THE SOUTH AFRICAN SPRINGBOKS ENDED THEIR BRITISH TOUR ON SATURDAY (31 JANUARY) WITH A DRAMATIC 21-12 WIN OVER THE BARBARIANS AT TWICKENHAM. THE VICTORY BROUGHT THE SPRINGBOKS' FINAL SCORE FOR THE 25-GAME TOUR TO 16 WINS, FIVE LOSES AND FOUR TIED MATCHES.

    THE BARBARIANS RAN THE BOKS INTO THE GROUND WITH THREE SPECTACULAR TRIES IN THE FIRST HALF. BUT THE SOUTH AFRICANS CAME BACK, SNAPPING UP HALF CHANCES TO TURN A 9-5 DEFICIT INTO A 16-9 LEAD.

    AFTER SEVEN MINUTES ARNEIL PLUNGED OVER FOR THE BARBARIANS IN A SPECTACULAR TRY. A FEW MINUTES LATER DUCKHAM PICKED UP ON THE HALFWAY LINE FROM EDWARDS AND SPED DOWN THE LEFT, TOTALLY OUT SPRINTING THE DEFENCE FOR A WONDER TRY.

    BUT AFTER 28 MINUTES THE BOKS FINALLY GOT ONTO THE SCOREBOARD WHEN FOUR COMBINED DOWN THE RIGHT FOR ELLIS TO PLUNGE ACROSS. DAWIE DE VILLIERS CONVERTED.

    A GREAT RUN BY SPENCER SPLIT THE BOK DEFENCE WIDE OPEN AFTER 36 MINUTES AN DUGGAN RACED THROUGH TO TAKE THE PASS AND SCORE.

    AT HALF-TIME THE SCORE WAS 9-8 FOR THE BARBARIANS. WHEN PLAY RESUMED LAWLESS DROPPED A BEAUTIFUL GOAL TO PUT THE BOKS AHEAD AND FROM THEN ON THE BARBARIANS DEFENCE COLLAPSED. VAN DER WATT CRASHED THROUGH ON THE LEFT TO INCREASE THE LEAD.

    DAWIE DE VILLIERS CONVERTED AND THE BARBARIANS WEAR STRUGGLING 9-16. ELLIS ADDED ANOTHER TRY AFTER 68 MINUTES AND DE VILLIERS CONVERTED TO COMPLETE THE SCORING.
