*** FULL-TIME ***
Final whistle sounds in Toyota and the Boks are 57-3 winners
The Boks pick up a full-house of 5 points, Namibia leave empty-handed
80' - Into the final minute of the match as things turned scrappy and then are booted into touch by the Boks
Final move of the match
79' - Lood de Jager is named MAN OF THE MATCH
78' - No obvious injuries for the Boks which would've been priority No 1 for Rassie Erasmus.
Truth be told every side in Pool B will pick up a bonus point against Namibia so nothing meaningful about this result
78' - Can Namibia go 98 metres for their first try?
No. They clear for touch
76' - Namibia back to 15 men as SA set up a lineout 5m from their opponents' tryline
Rolling maul coming up...
72' - Scrappy again by Elton Jantjies who hasn't had his best afternoon in an otherwise dominant side
Scrum to Namibia who will welcome back Johannes Coetzee from the sin-bin shortly
70' - "Beast" leaves the field in his 113rd Test, breaking out of a tie with none other than All Blacks legend Dan Carter
Still only has scored two tries in the green and gold...
Steven Kitshoff takes to the field
70' - Namibia enjoy a good passage of play and earn a penalty.
They set up the lineout inside the Boks' half
66' - Elton Jantjies' conversion is GOOD!
Boks lead 57-3 after 66 minutes
64 ' - Yellow card for Namibia
Very soft, referee had blown his whistle and play was dead when Brits was pushed over - and milked the card for all his worth!
64' - Schalk Brits down and referee Raynal asks to check the TMO
62' - Namibia hanging on grimly as the floodgates look ready to burst
Fitness levels of the two sides about to be exposed...
Look away now if you're a Namibian fan...
60' - Try number 8 isn't converted by Elton Jantjies as his attempt fades to the left
Boks 50-3 after 61 minutes
57' - Could well be a long last 23 minutes for Namibia who are penalised a SECOND time for a skew scrum feed!
55' - Elton Jantjies' conversion is GOOD
Boks lead 45-3 after 55 minutes
53' - Referee having a stern word with Namibia for no apparent reason.
Lineout to Namibia close to their tryline
51' - Horrible kick this time from Herschel Jantjies.
Looked like a 5-on-2 advantage but he gifts away possession.
Poor, bad and why, why, why?
No fewer than FIVE changes all at once by Namibia
50' - Elton Jantjies' conversion attempt is through the middle.
Boks lead 38-3 after 50 minutes
47' - Elton Jantjies kicks deep for some reason and Namibia's clearance is charged down into touch.
Lineout to Namibia.
The Boks will surely be better served keeping the ball in hand...
CHANGES AT LAST
Vincent Koch departs, replaced by Thomas du Toit
46' - Better from Namibia at scrum time as they enjoy a better spell of play.
But another knock sees another scrum.
45' - Scrappy play again from SA and Schalk Brits turns the ball over, but it's knocked on thereafter.
Scrum to Namibia inside the Boks' half as the second half struggles to get flowing.
44' - Cliven Loubser's kick rebounds off the right upright which has come in for some abuse tonight.
Third kick to have hit that same post.
42' - Namibia go through the phases but make no ground.
They do earn a penalty however. Good result for them as they were going nowhere fast.
They will look to double their score with a second shot at goal.
MAY MAKE SENSE, MAY NOT...
41' - Horrible yet again from Gelant as he drops a pass cold with no pressure.
Once again Willie le Roux breathes a sigh of relief somewhere in the stands...
Second half about to start. No obvious changes.
Bit of a surprise Siya Kolisi is still a no-show
