Lions player ratings vs South Africa: Test Two

Lions player ratings vs South Africa, powered by Lovell Rugby.

The series against South Africa will go to a decider after the Springboks won a fiery second Test 27-9 at Cape Town Stadium.

A heated first half saw the tourists lead 9-6 at the break with Dan Biggar kicking three penalties and Handre Pollard slotting two.

The hosts took the lead just four minutes after the restart when Makazole Mapimpi opening the try-scoring before Lukhanyo Am crossed on the hour mark to make it 18-9.

Pollard then slotted three late penalties to secure the win and set up a series finale next weekend.

Both sides will have to raise their level once again in what promises to be a thrilling series decider on Saturday, 7 August.
