01:40:36PM

*** 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

01:39:18PM
80' - Horribly skew lineout throw in but the referee doen't care. Blows for full-time
01:38:29PM

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

01:37:33PM

79' - Lood de Jager is named MAN OF THE MATCH

01:37:16PM

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

01:35:56PM

78' - Can Namibia go 98 metres for their first try?

No. They clear for touch

01:35:14PM
77' - To everyone's surprise - including their own backline - the Boks elect to spread it wide and knock it on
01:34:00PM

76' - Namibia back to 15 men as SA set up a lineout 5m from their opponents' tryline

Rolling maul coming up...

01:32:05PM
74' - Referee not helping Namibia's cause by not blowing offsides at the scrum as SA mount another attack looking to boost the try tally - and points differential
01:30:15PM

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

01:27:48PM

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

01:26:30PM

70' - Namibia enjoy a good passage of play and earn a penalty.

They set up the lineout inside the Boks' half

01:24:27PM
68' - Handling errors 10-8 in SA's 'favour' but due in main to their massive possession advantage
01:22:19PM

66' - Elton Jantjies' conversion is GOOD!

Boks lead 57-3 after 66 minutes

01:21:19PM
64' - After his miraculous recovery from a push, Schalk Brits bursts over from a lineout for SA's ninth try of the match
01:20:39PM
64' - TRY!
01:20:23PM

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!

01:18:50PM

64' - Schalk Brits down and referee Raynal asks to check the TMO

01:18:26PM
64' - Franco Mostert on for Bongi Mbonambi ...
01:16:05PM

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...

01:14:34PM

60' - Try number 8 isn't converted by Elton Jantjies as his attempt fades to the left

Boks 50-3 after 61 minutes

01:13:36PM
59' - That's the half century up for SA as Kolisi finds himself at the end of a backline move and canters in for an easy try with his first touch of the ball
01:12:52PM
59' - TRY!
01:11:15PM

57' - Could well be a long last 23 minutes for Namibia who are penalised a SECOND time for a skew scrum feed!

01:10:37PM
57' - Herschel Jantjies leaves the field, replaced by Cobus Reinach
01:08:08PM

55' - Elton Jantjies' conversion is GOOD

Boks lead 45-3 after 55 minutes

01:07:20PM
54' - Well worked lineout move sees Mapimpi glide in for his second try of the night
01:06:53PM
54' - TRY!
01:06:38PM
53' - Siya Kolisi finally on. Gets 27 minutes...
01:05:33PM

53' - Referee having a stern word with Namibia for no apparent reason.

Lineout to Namibia close to their tryline

01:03:56PM

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?

01:02:37PM

CHANGES GALORE

No fewer than FIVE changes all at once by Namibia

01:01:54PM

50' - Elton Jantjies' conversion attempt is through the middle.

Boks lead 38-3 after 50 minutes

01:01:10PM
49' - And to prove my point, a series of passes rather than kicks sees Warrick Gelant coast in for a the sixth try of the night
12:59:50PM
48' - TRY!
12:59:25PM

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...

12:57:48PM

CHANGES AT LAST

Vincent Koch departs, replaced by Thomas du Toit

12:57:16PM

46' - Better from Namibia at scrum time as they enjoy a better spell of play.

But another knock sees another scrum.

12:56:16PM

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.

12:55:13PM

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.

12:54:09PM

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.

12:51:35PM

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...

12:49:42PM

WE'RE BACK!

Second half about to start. No obvious changes.

Bit of a surprise Siya Kolisi is still a no-show
