South Africa clings on 42-39 to hand England another loss

Eddie Jones Clashes With South African Fan In His Search For Red Wine

New South Africa captain Siya Kolisi was a bag of nerves when the Springboks were blown away by a rampant England in the early stages of Saturday's first test at Ellis Park but praised his charges for rallying to win a pulsating encounter.

It is England's worst run since 2014 and the pressure is continuing to build after a stunning opening salvo of tries from Mike Brown, Elliot Daly and Owen Farrell was followed by a dramatic collapse, partly induced by the recurring flaw of indiscipline.

Farrell converted both scores and with 18 minutes gone in the first half, near silence enveloped Ellis Park with dominant England 21 points ahead.

And following the defeat, Australian Jones had an altercation with some South Africa fans in the tunnel after the final whistle at Ellis Park.

"Credit to the new caps, because they didn't panic and showed they just wanted to play, so we chose to take control of the game and it worked".

De Klerk, electric all season for the Sharks, helped set up S'busiso Nkosi for two tries before Le Roux crashed over minutes before the break. Kolisi is hoping to reflect on his historic achievement after the three-match series against England has been won.

"I was very nervous as we didn't expect to have such a tough time early in the game, but we have guys who had been in situations like that before", the first black player to captain the Springboks said after his side had prevailed 42-39.

England at least emerged from a pulsating Johannesburg opener without any significant injury concerns, with Tom Curry and Daly suffering minor cramp and a dead leg respectively.

"I thought it was a wonderful game of rugby‚" said Jones.

The dream debut continued when he popped up on the opposite wing after a clever run from Le Roux, creating the space for fellow debutant Aphiwe Dyantyi to send him over.

South Africa dominated much of the second half before England, finally able to get their hands on the ball, conjured tries for Maro Itoje and Jonny May that proved too late to save the day.

Supporters leaned over the railings and verbally insulted Jones as he walked down the tunnel at the end of the first Test, Press Association Sport understands.

'They know they were in one hell of a game, they got home and did well to get home and deserved the victory. "I was just asking them where I could get a good bottle of Pinotage", the former Saracens boss told reporters.

"That made for uncharacteristic individual errors which allowed South Africa back in the game".

"Our replacements all went to the U.S. last week and I expected them to run out of steam a bit after some time, but all of them made a big impact".
