Springboks outclass Scotland

Afp
Monday, June 30, 2014

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa - Flanker Marcell Coetzee, winger Lwazi Mvovo and lock Lood de Jager scored two tries apiece as South Africa thumped Scotland 55-6 in a rugby test in which both sides were far from full strength.

With the match falling outside of the IRB's international window, the Springboks were missing seven France-based players while the tourists were without their English Premiership charges, and the gap in quality between the replacements was clear, as South Africa ran in eight unanswered tries.

Willie le Roux and JP Pietersen also got on the scoresheet for the hosts, while Handre Pollard notched five conversions and a penalty on his international debut.

Five-eighth Duncan Weir's two penalties were as good as it got for Scotland, which found itself outclassed in just about every department.
