Autumn Internationals: England 15-16 South Africa
South Africa finished their Europe tour with a 15-16 victory over England at Twickenham which dealt England a heavy blow for their seeding at next month's World Cup draw.
Springbok flanker Willem Alberts's try, the only one of the match, early in the second half proved the decisive score in a rainswept match.
However, with the hosts trailing 16-12 and only two minutes left, England captain Chris Robshaw, criticised for running kickable penalties during last week's defeat by Australia, told replacement fly-half Owen Farrell to go for goal rather than opt for an attacking line-out that could have led to a try.
South Africa's line-out superiority provided Robshaw with justification for his decision.
But with Farrell, who landed the kick to leave his side a point behind, appearing to disagree with Robshaw's call, England wasted valuable time.
And from the re-start South Africa, second in the world standings to England's fifth, did enough to extend their unbeaten streak against England to 11 Tests.
