    Nothing short of emphatic from the Springboks in Port Elizabeth. Eight tries and some brilliant debut performances which will please Heyneke Meyer no end with the Rugby World Cup coming up next year. Before that, they will turn attention to The Rugby Championship which gets underway in August and will be live on Sky Sports! It's the end of a long tour for Scotland, Vern Cotter's first in charge, and there will be plenty of positives from their victories against USA, Canada and Argentina. It ended with a whimper and a humbling lesson at the hands of a brutal Springbok side. Thank you very much for joining us this afternoon. You can relive all the action with our match report and reaction. Until next time, we bid you a fond farewell! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    SOUTH AFRICA 55-6 SCOTLAND
    It's all over in Port Elizabeth! It has been a long four weeks for Scotland, it was successful for three of those weeks but they have been comprehensively beaten by a powerful and clinical South Africa side at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. An emphatic and resounding victory from an experimental Springbok side in key areas, which has seen them lay down an impressive marker ahead of The Rugby Championship. Eight tries from the Springboks in all and an impressive debut from Handre Pollard.

    SOUTH AFRICA 55-6 SCOTLAND - LOOD DE JAGER TRY, MARNITZ BOSHOFF CONVERSION
    South Africa were lining up to score and it is much easier for De Jager this time as he simply reaches over the top to touch down. Boshoff is successful with his first kick from the tee.
  • 17:42

    78 mins: Scotland fails to find Ashe at the back of the line-out and Burger steals the ball before charging down field. Serfontein takes over and makes even more ground but South Africa are held just short. Advantage is coming soon.

    76 mins: We have a couple of players down receiving treatment before the scrum and the clock is running down.

  • 17:36

    74 mins: It all ends with a whimper for Scotland as they are penalised for hands in the ruck and Boshoff finds touch with his first kick in international rugby.
  • 17:36

    73 mins: More attack from Scotland and they are doing well to keep recycling the ball without conceding the penalty or knock on as the Springbok defence continues to hammer away.
  • 17:35

    72 mins: Marnitz Boshoff comes on to make his international debut and there will
    be a standing ovation for Handre Pollard as he makes way.
    The youngster can be extremely proud of his efforts on debut! Scotland not giving up as they work their way over the South African 22.
  • 17:34

    70 mins: Referee has had enough and South Africa take their penalty quickly, but they concede a penalty the other way, which Weir kicks to touch.

    SOUTH AFRICA 48-6 SCOTLAND - LOOD DE JAGER TRY, HANDRE POLLARD CONVERSION
    The lock may be 6ft 10in but he has roared away after a neat offload from Coetzee. It's a first international try for the 21-year-old, who has a massive grin on his face.

    65 mins: Scotland showing their bravery as they refuse to give up, but South Africa look like they are just starting!

    Scotland are enthused by that break but a loose pass is well intercepted by Mvovo, who accelerates over 60 metres to touch down his second of the match. Pace and power from the Springbok winger. Pollard nails a fantastic conversion and the crowd roar with approval, expect to see his face all over the South Africa back pages tomorrow.
