Springboks lose to England in a messy match full of penalties and yellow cards

Checking reports on the Springboks, Briefly News reported that the Springboks took on England in their first match since the South Africans won the Rugby World Cup back in 2019.

However, the match was full of penalties and yellow cards as the two teams pulverised each other on the pitch.

The Springboks struggled to get the better of the English who had successfully managed to create opportunities for individual brilliance. The green machine kept on going and the second half of the match painted a very different picture.

The English were forced on the back foot and their scrums simply crumbled under the weight of the Springbok assault.
