With very little to play for, both squads looked largely like they were going through the motions. As the far better team, the Blitzboks on autopilot easily outclassed Wales for the opening score. Chris Dry scored the first points for South Africa, converted by Justin Geduld. Surprisingly, even with Wales down a man due to a yellow card, South Africa struggled to build on that lead. Just before halftime a certain try for South Africa was called back,. It was not until the 2:09 mark of the second half that South Africa added a second score, this one coming from Cecil Afrika, adding a spark of energy off the bench. On the ensuing kickoff, Dry caught it on the run and the Blitzboks cycled it from where Dry started on the right side of the pitch to the far left side where Siviwe Soyizwapi stood waiting for his first score of the match. With each try converted, South Africa held a 21–0 lead until Luke Morgan got one converted try back for Wales. As pool play drew to a close, South Africa claimed the victory: South Africa 21, Wales 7.
