Nelspruit - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer says he took plenty of positives from his side’s unconvincing 30-17 victory over Scotland at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Saturday.
"I am obviously not happy with the first half but I thought we needed a game like this before we go into the (Rugby) Championships.

"This team is still evolving and there are a lot of exciting players but you need to win games like this where you just grind out a win.”
The Boks finished the match with a final flourish as Jan Serfontein, playing off the bench, scored his team's third five-pointer of the evening. Lambie converted for a flattering final score of 30-17.
