Scotland 3, South Africa 24 (Half-Time)

Jason White and his team must be looking at the score at half-time and wondering just how they managed to be so far behind. The Scots attacked the Springbok line relentlessly in the first ten minutes, with some tremendous rugby. In defence, too, the sight of Scots actually knocking back Springboks in the tackle brought the crowd to its feet. With the scores poised at 3-3 half-way through, however, South Africa then hit the hosts with three tries in six minutes and Scotland go into half-time trailing 3-24.Jason White and his team must be looking at the score at half-time and wondering just how they managed to be so far behind.
