Farrell fluffs chance to down ’Boks

AFP, PORT ELIZABETH, SOUTH AFRICA

After numerous warnings to the England forwards for infringements, Australian referee Steve Walsh lost his patience on 51 minutes and showed New Zealand-born Hartley a yellow card.

South Africa spent a lot of time in the England half and were rewarded just past the hour when lineout possession led to an assault on the line and a skip pass from replacement scrumhalf Ruan Pienaar sent Pietersen over.

Steyn failed to convert from far out, but the Springboks were ahead 14-11, only for England to level when Farrell kicked his second close-range penalty eight minutes from time.
