5 Penalty: Francois Steyn
80 One more chance to the Boks, but they can't regather the restart. Giteau kicks downfield. The Boks will need to go the length of the field if they hope to win this one. They can't do it - the Boks lose with a bonus point for being within 7.
79 The ball goes back to Barnes who drops a goal. That's almost the ball game.
78 The Boks can't get their hands on the ball - the Wallabies have it inside the 22 - they should close this game out here with just over a minute left.
77 The Wallabies get 5m from the line - still they attack. Horwil goes close, but the Wallabies knock on.
76 De Villiers loses the ball in the tackle - the Boks running out of time. Cordingley takes the ball off the back of the scrum and now Giteau lifts a kick high. Jantjes drops the ball - still the Wallabies come. Pietersen under huge pressure on his line - he does well, but the ball is tunred over.
73 The Boks have it inside the 22 - Januarie with a half break. The Boks pick and drive, but can't make ground. 15m from the line and they've lost the ball forward.
71 The Wallabies attack, but the Boks somehow manage to steal. The Boks looking to attack from their 22 - the BEAST makes a 30m break down the right wing. Free kick now and they Boks keep on the attack - eventually SMith is taken into touch.
66 The Wallabies manage to clear their lines from the scrum. Attacking lineout for the Boks. Matfield is brought down at the lineout - kickable penalty. Frans Steyn will have a shot at goal.
65 Three changes for the Boks - Pienaar on for an injured Habana, Grant for James and Bekker for Botha.
65 Good move here from the Boks - they take it off the back of the line out. Quick hands and some good running releases Habana for the corner. The TMO is called, but it looks like a knock on by Habana as he went for the corner. Cross with the try saving tackle.
64 It's gaining ground here until Jantjes feeds Pietersen who chips before being taken out. Penalty to the Boks - they kick to touch.
62 Andries Bekker comes on for Kankowski who is in the blood bin.
59 The Boks have the ball now on half way, but they don't have a clue. Free kick to the Wallabies - they attack. The Boks turn it now and will look to build a better attack.
58 Steyn breaks over the advantage lne and the Boks have quick ball - Januarie's pass is poor, though, and Tuqiri snaffles. Free kick to the Boks - they'll take a scrum.
57 Smith breaks out of defence and the Boks toe the ball ahead - there's a foot race on, but Barnes takes the ball into touch.
54 Giteau pins the Boks back in their 22 - the Springboks need to spark something into their play soon.
52 The Boks get a penalty at the restart - Butch James with an immediate chance to close the gap.
49 Steenkamp is penalised at scrum time - Giteau will have a shot at goal.
48 Things going from bad to worse here for the Boks as Schalk Burger is replaced by Ryan Kankowski. Stirling Mortlock also doesn't know who or where he is and he comes off with concussion.
47 Bryce Lawrence is only blowing for one side here - knock ons are going unblown and the Wallabies are getting away with murder at the breakdown. The Boks are scrambling here and battling to stay in the game.
45 The Wallabies take it left from an attacking scrum and Mortlock knocks over de Villiers on his way to the line. The TMO is called - and the try is given.
40 Matfield is pulled down - then the Wallabies are all in at the side, but Bryce Lawrence sees nothing wrong . The Wallabies turn the ball over and kick downfield, but Pietersen gets back to put the ball into touch. Half time.
39 Ashley-Cooper puts the ball out directly into touch - second remaining in the half as teh hooter sounds
37 The Wallabies have their tails up now. They attack and attack, but don't make too much ground. In the end it's a penalty to South Africa and the Wallabies enter the ruck from the side.
34 The Wallabies with a defensive scrum. Januarie puts on some pressure, but they manage to clear. Brits is then blown for offside and it allows the Wallabies to set up a lineout. They break in midifeld and the Boks are scrambling. Overlap here as Ashley-Cooper puts Tuqiri in for the first try of the game.
30 The Wallabies enjoying a spell in the Boks' 22 - Smith chips over, but Januarie - the little pitbull - is there to gather and dot down.
28 Elsom comes back onto the field after a brief spell in the blood bin. There's a chance here for Spies, but he can't hold on to the ball. The Boks need to convert one of these chances...
25 The Springboks have the scrum feed and de Villiers breaks free. Desperately close as the Boks trade slick passes, but the move winds down and comes to nothing. So close for Spies there - great attacking play from James and de Villiers to cut the line from first phase.
20 The Wallabies are caught offside - Frans Steyn with another long range effort.
19 Shocking drop attempt by Barnes barely makes it over the try line. 22m drop out for the Boks.
17 Messy play by the Boks - but they have the scrum feed out near half way.
13 Action now as the Boks break - half chance but Smith sells Habana with a poorly timed pass. Tuqiri now hits back and the Bok defence is scrambling. Spies makes the tackle before Giteau puts the ball into touch.
11 The Springboks attack - but can't find the gap - Steyn with a drop attempt, but it sails wide right.
9 The game still settling down - they trading kicks before Tuqiri sets off downfield before being stopped by Smith. Barnes looks up and puts a grubber downfield. Brits to feed the lineout - taken by Botha.
6 Steyn slips on contact, but the ball flies true.
5 The Boks now have it, but can't make ground. In the end Moore and Palu are caught offside - long attempt for Frans Steyn.
4 The teams trade kicks before Jantjes settles the game down with a kick that ends in goal.
3 The Wallabies keep the ball in hand, but the defence holds firm. A knock on just outside the 22 allows the Boks a chance to clear the ball.
