It was a ninth successive test win for the Welsh -- a feat they have not achieved since 1999 -- and a fourth win in a row over the Boks but, more importantly a strong message about their potential for next year’s World Cup.

The Welsh, ranked third in world rugby, scored two early tries to ensure a 14-3 half-time lead as they displayed not only attacking verve but some stoic defence to hold off a dominant Springbok showing in the second half.
