website.GALLERY: Top pictures from the past sporting weekend
The Springboks clinched the series at Coca-Cola Park when they won the
second Test by 36-27. They arrived earlier on Sunday for the final
Test at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.
Lock Juandré Kruger (neck), flank Willem Alberts (knee) and fullback Pat Lambie (ankle) all left the field during the second Test.
Meyer said many players were tired because they had been playing every week, but he
needed continuity going into the Rugby Championship (SA, New Zealand,
Australia and now Argentina).
"I don't care so much about winning the series. I want to win every Test," Meyer emphasised. "I don't want to make the national colours
cheap. Even before this game I wanted to give one or two guys a chance
and bring some freshness to the squad."
