COMMENTATOR: "Waggenaar missing out .....(indistinct) he's there."
"Rives...(indistinct)...and Haden of New Zealand trying to do it alone. Yes he's done it. Will McBride, patting the New Zealander on the shoulder."
"Germishuis -- he's found his gap. Germishuis scores South Africa's fourth try of the afternoon...Left wing from the Free State."
"Wolmarans going it alone. Germishuis outside. Tackled well by Kirkpatrick (indistinct) outside of Wolmarans. Wolmarans scores. He's got Germishuis but he doesn't need him."
"The South African team has scored no fewer than six tries to the World Fifteen's three tries. Averous, McLean and Haden, all of them converted by Paul McLean.
"Travaglini....no it's not, it's Averous. What a deceptive trick. Averous scores."
