The Springboks will be strong contenders at next year's World Cup in Japan after recovering from two dismal seasons that produced a number of unwanted records, according to South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus and his England counterpart Eddie Jones.
Danny Cipriani went into the third Test between the Springboks and England with much to prove, and he undoubtedly made the most of his opportunity. It will surely not be another 10 years before he starts another Test for England.
England were much smarter at the breakdown and managed to disrupt the Springboks' maul before it got on a roll in the third Test at Newlands.
Rugby will have turned into a "nanny state" if Israel Folau is suspended for challenging a high ball against Ireland, according to NSW Waratahs assistant coach Simon Cron.
England head coach Eddie Jones is not guaranteed to keep his job for next year's World Cup in Japan despite having the support of the Rugby Football Union, RFU chairman Andy Cosslett has said.
