This is what social media users had to say about the match
"Partying face Great start to the second half as Mapimpi goes over for his second try, from winning back a contestable kick and sending it wide, with De Allende again doing very well. Jantjies adds the conversion - 15-10 to the Boks after 44 mins. #StrongerTogether #StrongerForever #SCOvRSA."
"A predictable win for the @Springboks over Scotland, though the home side fought hard. The ref was fantastic, the Bok pack was magnificent. And don’t be too tough on Herschel Jantjies. #SCOvRSA"
"Positive for Scotland was doggedness in defence, South Africa didn’t score through us, but out wide for tries and you saw a change in attitude with them kicking pens because of that. #SCOvRSA."
