Nervous Kolisi hailed as Boks rally to stun England

  • England head coach Jones involved in tunnel altercation

A scarcely-believable 24-3 lead had been amassed by the 18th minute with George Ford, acting as ringmaster as Mike Brown, Elliot Daly and Owen Farrell ran in superb tries.

"It certainly wasn't the start we wanted in our first Test at home and I was anxious because we had a lot of young players against a very experienced England side", said Erasmus.

And following the defeat, Australian Jones had an altercation with some South Africa fans in the tunnel after the final whistle at Ellis Park. Pollard extended South Africa's advantage with a penalty, though the fly-half's effort was sandwiched between two misses that kept England in touch.

Electric debutant S'busiso Nkosi crossed twice to bring Ellis Park to his feet and in between his two tries, Jones hauled off lock Nick Isiekwe, making his full debut, and brought on the uncapped Hurricanes forward Brad Shields.

The All Blacks scored 44 unanswered points in the second half as they came from behind to hammer France 52-11 in the opening game of their three-Test series on Saturday. Kolisi is hoping to reflect on his historic achievement after the three-match series against England has been won.

Kolisi's life journey from poverty and adversity in the township of Zwide in Port Elizabeth to becoming a rugby superstar and iconic figure in the history of South African sport will be inspiration enough for his teammates.

"It's a big moment for the country to have Kolisi as captain and for him to win his first game at Ellis Park, the spiritual homeland of the Springboks", said Jones.

England at least emerged from a pulsating Johannesburg opener without any significant injury concerns, with Tom Curry and Daly suffering minor cramp and a dead leg respectively. "Especially when they win", Jones said after the match.

South Africa dominated much of the second half before England, finally able to get their hands on the ball, conjured tries for Maro Itoje and Jonny May that proved too late to save the day. Alongside Wasps full-back Le Roux, the Sale playmaker was a constant menace by loading the bullets for debutant wings Aphiwe Dyantyi and Nkosi to fire.

'The two wingers look like they run as fast as Usain Bolt.

"That made for uncharacteristic individual errors which allowed South Africa back in the game".

Supporters leaned over the railings and verbally insulted Jones as he walked down the tunnel at the end of the first Test, Press Association Sport understands. He has to stay strong, they've definitely got the players there. "I asked the fan where I can get a good bottle of Pinotage and I'm still waiting for the answer". "So, I think they'll learn a lot from that".
