Full-time

South Africa 20-26 Ireland

Ireland captain Rory Best: “We knew it was going to be unbelievably tough going and would take a massive physical performance to win here. But we dug deep to get that win, there are a lot of very tired boys in the Irish dressing room. 

"If we’d sat back [after CJ Stander’s sending off] and kept giving them the ball, they would have kept coming at us and we would have run out of steam, so we had to take the ball to them.”

Michael Moran: Unbelievable performance from Ireland with only 14 men for such a long period of the game. Superb!

Michael Griffiths: Wow!!! What a day of rugby, new dawn for the northern hemisphere!!!

Full-time

South Africa 20-26 Ireland

What a performance by Ireland, one of their most famous - their first victory on South African soil and they did it playing with 14 men for 60 minutes, following CJ Stander's red card. Remarkable. Although, you have to say, new-look South Africa looked a lot like old-look South Africa, except worse. 

No try

South Africa 20-26 Ireland

The hooter sounds as South Africa search for a try that might win it at the death... Whitely almost through, tackled round the ankles by Murray... Pietersen almost in in the right-hand corner... what a tackle! It's going upstairs, but I don't think he got that down... he didn't get it down, what a victory for Ireland!

South Africa 20-26 Ireland

South Africa lose the ball in the tackle, Jackson dives on it as if it's a priceless Faberge egg, the referee calls the scrum as the clock ticks into the red...  

South Africa 20-26 Ireland

Murray with the Garryowen, South Africa inch into the Irish half... Kriel to Pietersen, but it's a poor pass and the winger knocks on. Given Ireland have had only 14 players for most of the match and are missing a stack of first-team regulars, this is just as embarrassing for South Africa as the defeat by Japan at the World Cup. But not done yet...

Penalty (Jackson)

South Africa 20-26 Ireland

Le Roux tries to make something happen, he's looked like South Africa's most lively player all day. Penalty Ireland, Malherbe off his feet again, Jackson with the chance to almost kill things... and he has, straight through the middle...

South Africa 20-23 Ireland

Jackson with a drop-goal attempt and he slices it wide, that was very makeable. Horribly tense out there. Strauss on a rumble but there's not much flair out there at the moment and Ireland have turned it over yet again. Jackson clears, Le Roux underneath it... South Africa raid down the left but Nyakane is dragged into touch, tremendous cover defence again...

Converted try (Du Toit, Jantjies)

South Africa 20-23 Ireland

Oh dear, Jackson with the risky pass in his own 22 and replacement lock Du Toit latches onto it and dives under the sticks. Conversion kicked, lead cut to three points.

Penalty (Jackson)

South Africa 13-23 Ireland

Penalty South Africa, Jantjies finds a solid touch. But Ireland have it again and Henshaw almost wriggles through... penalty Ireland, and Jackson is going to have a go. This could be terminal for South Africa, they've been pretty awful today, it has to be said... Jackson nails it...

South Africa 13-20 Ireland

Etzebeth knocks on, this is getting critical for South Africa now, they're incontinent with mistakes at the moment. Ireland put-in, collapses, put-in again... Best receiving treatment, gets patched up, we go again... Ireland swing it left, Henshaw kicks through, full-back Le Roux fumbles it into touch...

Missed penalty

South Africa 13-20 Ireland

Unbelievable stuff from Ireland, South Africa turned over again. Ross off for Furlong in the Irish front row, Nyakane on for Mtawarira in the South African front row. Ireland penalty as new man Nyakane is pinged for illegal scrummaging, Jackson having a stab from halfway... fine effort but it hits an upright...

South Africa 13-20 Ireland

Ireland nick it again at the breakdown, although that was a naughty from Best, using his feet. South Africa butcher another chance down the left flank, poor execution but stirring defence. Anxious faces in the Springbok coaching booth, this is not going to plan...   

South Africa 13-20 Ireland

Jantjies has got some boot and here's a South African line-out on the Ireland 10m. Etzebeth with another fine line-out take, a couple of charges down the middle, then they go wide... Pietersen spots half a gap, can't wriggle through it... De Jager hauled down just short... Toner turns it over, Jackson clears. Wonderful defence by Ireland.

South Africa 13-20 Ireland

If South Africa can't get themselves out of this, they will get crucified - as will new coach Allister Coetzee. Just no fluency to their play at the moment...

South Africa 13-20 Ireland

Murphy with a fine pass to Earls, who slides past a couple before kicking through... Ireland playing very well despite being one man down and here comes Jackson with the step, chip and chase! Brilliant cover from scrum-half De Klerk, saving a certain try.

Converted try (Murray, Jackson)

South Africa 13-18 Ireland

Ireland get a push on, at least they're back to 14 now, Henshaw out of the bin. Blimey, Ireland look like they've scored, Murray going over. There was a knock-on earlier in the piece, but it was by a South African, and the try stands. Jackson adds the conversion.

Mixed opinions on the Stander incident

#bbrugby

Keith Lyons: If that was a red card tackle, we might as well as go home and start knitting

Kevin Mills: Awful high dangerous tackling/charging by Ireland. A lot of people need glasses if your saying it's not

Tom Rowse: England supporter with money on SA to win but that red was an utterly unfair decision.

half-time summary

Half-time

South Africa 13-13 Ireland

Well, plenty went on in that first half. Ireland made an assured start but the dismissal of local boy CJ Stander is the main talking part at half-time. To remind you, Stander went to charge down a Pat Lambie kick, twisted away from him, Lambie's head connected with Stander's hip, Lambie was knocked cold, Stander was given his marching orders. My view is that it was reckless rather than malicious. More importantly, Lambie is said to be OK.  

Half-time

South Africa 13-13 Ireland

South Africa trying to nick a score before the end of the first half and they certainly should. The ball is slung left to Mvolo but he's tackled short. Eventually the hosts do get the ball down, but Louw had his foot in touch. Massive let-off for the visitors but it's going to take a monumental effort from Ireland to hold out for the whole of the second half. 

South Africa 13-13 Ireland

The Springboks raiding down the right, Vermuelen brought down on the 22. Great turnover by Henderson, stripping the ball from De Jager, and Jackson puts his laces through it.  

Drop-goal (Jackson)

South Africa 13-13 Ireland

Jantjies of the Lions with a fine clearance kick, Ireland throw on the 10m line. I hear Lambie is 'only' concussed and is currently being monitored in hospital. Ireland making light of their two-man numerical disadvantage and here's Jackson popping over a drop-goal. Sweet.

Converted try (Mvovo, Jantjies)

South Africa 13-10 Ireland

Try South Africa, great line by Mvovo, hurtling into the line, taking a fantastic inside pass from Jantjies and touching down unopposed. Meanwhile, Henshaw is sent to the bin for a high tackle on Jantjies, despite the protests of Ireland captain Best. I think Best's main problem was the fact Luke Marshall was blocked during the build-up to Mvovo's try. Things going pear shaped for the men in green...

South Africa 6-10 Ireland

Jackson errs with his restart and we come back for a scrum on halfway. De Jager with a clean take, to Louw, and here's Pietersen out on the right wing... back left, South Africa should score, but it's a forward pass. Let off for Ireland, butchered.

Penalty (Jantjies)

South Africa 6-10 Ireland

South Africa are restored to their full quota of 15, so now they've got one man extra for the remaining 55 minutes. South Africa penalty, McGrath off his feet, Jantjies knocks it over.

Michael Moran: Never a red card. He was trying to charge the ball down and turned into the jump. Yellow for recklessness but that's about it  

South Africa 3-10 Ireland

As much as Lambie doesn't look in a good way - he's just been carted off the pitch in a neck brace - I'm not sure that was a red card, mainly because I'm not sure it was intentional. But arguments will rage on that front. Jantjies is on for Lambie at fly-half. 

Red card (Stander)

South Africa 3-10 Ireland

Deary me, Stander has absolutely clattered Lambie, who looks to be out cold. But play continues... the whistle does eventually go and replays show Stander went to charge down Lambie's chip and his hip made contact with Lambie's chin. Stander, a local boy, is off.

A day of test rugby and cricket mean little to no revision being done today, #bbcrugby our resident Ulsterman reckons 45-3 to IRE #SAvIRE

South Africa 3-10 Ireland

Murray is charged down by Pietersen before Marshall mops up and hammers one downfield. Did I mention Lood De Jager is in the bin? No? Well, he is. 

Penalty (Jackson)

South Africa 3-10 Ireland

Ireland flood back into the Springboks 22, Earls brought down on the left. Another penalty, Stander nearly bursts through, as does Jackson, fine defence... Jackson eventually launches one, Pietersen is underneath it, but they go back for that penalty, which Jackson knocks over. No signs of nerves from the Ulster 10.

Penalty (Lambie)

South Africa 3-7 Ireland

South Africa go wide and a Henshaw knock-on, which looked deliberate, goes unnoticed. The Springboks look to maul but Ireland stand up to it... aaah, not for long, Heaslip gives away a penalty for going off his feet. Lambie pops over the three-pointer from bang in front...

Converted try (Payne, Jackson)

South Africa 0-7 Ireland

South Africa concede their fifth penalty in only 10 minutes, off-side again. Ireland throw on the 5m line... Toner takes, Heaslip gathers, Ireland rumble towards the line... Ireland try! Jared Payne! South Africa were pinged for yet another off-side, Marshall grubbered through and full-back Payne was wise to it. They go upstairs to check if Payne was in front of the kicker but decided he wasn't. Jackson makes the conversion.

South Africa 0-0 Ireland

Ireland penalty, now, as South Africa come in from the side and Jackson pops the ball into touch. Murray coughs the ball up and here's Mtawarira with his first rumble... another Ireland penalty, men offside, the referee has a word with skipper Strauss, who then has a word with his men...

Missed penalty

South Africa 0-0 Ireland

South Africa penalty, Ireland not releasing. The visitors getting a going over at the breakdown, Francois Louw with some great work over the ball. But Lambie pushes his penalty attempt right of the posts.

South Africa 0-0 Ireland

Best throws to the tail, Conor Murray with the kick, South Africa penalised again, Ireland opt for the scrum. South Africa win the free-kick, Murray taking too long to feed the ball. Lambie with the good, hefty clearance...
