Lions 9-27 South Africa rugby LIVE RESULT: Springboks level series with dominant kicking display – latest reaction


From The Sun’s Jonny Fordham in Cape Town:

The Lions were forced to a final Test decider as this barbaric never-ending story rolls on for another week.

In a bloodthirsty Second Test South Africa roared back with a vengeance.
The Boklash they promised, was delivered.

So the bubbling Cape Town cauldron gets one final grudge match to settle this simmering series once and for all.

But just how many of the players will be left to take the field after Cheslin Kolbe, Faf de Klerk and Lions winger Duhan van der Merwe now sweat on citings for foul play.

Tries from Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhanyo Am sunk the Lions as it was Warren Gatland’s side who suffered a second-half collapse after leading 9-6.

Tempers were flaring and the raw emotion was palpable in the empty Cape Town stadium.
