Superb South Africa put Wales to the sword with 52-16 win

South Africa displayed their dominance with a resounding 52-16 victory over Wales in their Rugby World Cup warm-up fixture in Cardiff. Canan Moodie and Jesse Kriel each scored two tries, while Malcolm Marx, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Damien Willemse, and a penalty try contributed to the Springboks’ eight tries. Despite the win, South Africa will be concerned about their high error count and poor kicking. Captain Siya Kolisi made a successful return from injury and will look to build on his performance in the upcoming match against New Zealand. Wales, missing key players due to injury, were easily dismantled by the Springboks. The visitors controlled the game, but flyhalf Manie Libbok’s poor kicking was a cause for worry. However, South Africa showcased their dominance in the set-piece and were clinical in the opposition’s 22. The Boks led 24-9 at halftime and secured a late consolation try through Sam Parry. There may be concerns over Damien Willemse’s yellow card for a dangerous tackle, as the citing commissioner could take a different view. Wales captain Jac Morgan acknowledged the tough challenge posed by South Africa and expressed disappointment in his team’s performance.
