Thanks for tuning in!

The final is set for next Saturday between South Africa and England - a repeat of the 2007 World Cup final in Paris which the Springboks won 15-6.

Stay tuned to Sport24 for reaction following the Boks' epic win over Wales.

12:54:20PM
The Boks showed great composure in those final 10 minutes. They had to first defend for a period and then took their chance when it came. Francois Louw's penalty on the ground will be remembered for a long time... as well as Handre Pollard's coolly slotted penalty a few minutes later...

12:45:46PM

Pollard, knowing he had the advantage, attempted a long-range drop goal but his effort was too low and hit the bottom padding of the posts...
