Highlights: Italy v South Africa

A sublime second-half performance helped South Africa to a 63-21 win over Italy in a chaotic and sometimes frenzied Autumn Nations Series affair at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

The Springboks led by just two points in the 45th minute but quickly moved through the gears to take the game beyond Italy, scoring seven tries, four of which came from the replacements bench, as the hosts, perhaps fatigued from their historic win over Australia, ran out of steam.

South Africa’s first win of the autumn was far from a perfect display but a clear reminder of their attacking potential and they head home with a convincing win over one of Europe’s rising powers.
