Scotland V South Africa

1' South Africa get us underway at Murrayfield!

3' Pat Lambie kicks the first penalty of the game into touch and South Africa have a line-out five metres from the Scotland line

4' TRY! Willem Alberts opens the scoring at Murrayfield with a well worked try. South Africa win the ball from the line-out and drive over the line to score in the corner

5' CON! Pat Lambie converts the try to make it 7-0 to South Africa

9' The Scots win a penalty well inside their half which Jackson kicks to touch just inside the visitor’s half but nothing comes of the line-out, so it remains 7-0 to South Africa

16' MISS PEN! Pat Lambie misses a penalty for South Africa after Tommy Seymour was penalised for taking out Bryan Habana. Lambie's kick drifted just wide of the posts.

21' JP Pietersen skips several tackles to power into the Scotland 22, but Sean Lamont puts in a massive tackle to stop the flow of green and gold. A knock on follows and Scotland clear the danger.

25' South Africa win a penalty inside the Scots half but they opt to kick for touch rather than go for the points.

They win a line-out in an identical position to where they scored the opening try. However, this time the Scots defend brilliantly and several phases later win a penalty which Jackson kicks to touch.

29' TRY! So cruel for the Scots! As they pile on the pressure inside the South Africa half a loose pass from Jackson is intercepted by Willie le Roux who scores under the posts.

29' CON! Pat Lambie converts the easy conversion to make it 14-0

31' TRY! The try scorer turns provider as South Africa turn the screw. After a good break Willie le Roux puts a lovely chip through for Pietersen to get an easy try under the posts.

33' CON! Lambie converts once more to make it 21-0 to South Africa at Murrayfield and make it a miserable opening period for the Scots

35' As Scotland look for a score before the break they venture inside the South Africa 22 but the attack breaks down with a knock on and South Africa clear once more

39' Jackson kicks a penalty into touch five metres from the visitor’s line and following the line-out are awarded a scrum, but the ball is thrown into touch and that's half-time.

Half-time: Scotland 0 - 21 South Africa

40' Jackson gets the second-half underway at Murrayfield...

50' Still no scoring in the second half but both teams showing attacking intent. Seymour collects a long, wild pass at one end and then saves a try at the other by booting the ball out on his own try line!

52' TRY! South Africa get the first score of the second-half. From the line-out following Seymour's kick into touch South Africa win the ball cleanly and drive over to extend their lead. Replacement prop Coenie Oosthuizen gets the score for the visitors.

54' CON! Lambie adds the extras to make it 28-0 to South Africa

55' SUBS Scotland make three changes: Alasdair Dickinson is replaced by Ryan Grant, Ross Ford is replaced by Scott Lawson and Ruaridh Jackson is replaced by Duncan Weir

58' Weir kicks a Scotland penalty into touch just five metres from the South African line as Scotland ramp up the pressure

61' Scotland just can't get over the green and gold line and South Africa win a penalty metres out which they clear to touch

62' SUB Jonny Gray comes on to make his Scotland debut replacing his brother Richie in the second-row

63' Almost another interception there from South Africa as Duncan Weir throws a wild pass this time but the ball is knocked on

64' SUBS Another two Scotland changes as Max Evans comes on for Tommy Seymour and Johnnie Beattie replaces John Barclay

66' Scotland awarded a penalty well inside the visitors 22 and Weir kicks to touch - but from the resulting line-out the Scots spill the ball and the chance is gone

68' SUB Glasgow Warriors scrum-half Chris Cusiter comes on for Edinburgh's Greig Laidlaw

70' YELLOW South Africa's Marcell Coetzee is sent to the sin-bin and the Scots kick to touch well inside the visitors 22

72' Sean Lamont is penalised for holding on just when the Scots thought they were closing in on their opening score of the game. Once again South Africa's defence holds firm and they clear well upfield.

75' As the Scots look for a consolation score here at Murrayfield David Denton collects a lovely pass on the wing but is forced into touch inside the visitors 22. South Africa lead 28-0 with just five minutes remaining.

75' MOTM Today's man of the match at Murrayfield is South Africa's number 15 Willie le Roux
