By Arthur James O'Dea

24-3 in the visitors favour after 18 minutes of play, South Africa vs England was turned on its head in a blitz of attacking rugby that will leave Eddie Jones wondering, what now?

By half-time, the hosts held a 29-27 lead; a cracking game in Johannesburg throwing up seven tries in the opening half.

What became England's fifth successive defeat, Rassie Erasmus' South Africa ran out 42-39 winners . A good win for the hosts, England's incredible collapse left many watching perplexed.

Initially, confidence was high amongst the England faithful as Eddie Jones' men raced into an early lead. Looking closer to the tough at the apparent restoration of past form was hard to overlook.

This Owen Farrell try to bring the tie to 22-3 summed up England's stellar performance in the opening 20 minutes.

Yet, it didn't last too long.

Becoming apparent that South Africa were far from written off, there was a stunned reaction to how this tie had turned so quickly.

Chasing the game in what became an ever-opening attacking affair, England's Johnny May did show tremendous pace in finishing off this effort - but it ultimately wouldn't be enough.

With England fans growing increasingly concerned that the indomitable side of a few years ago is fading fast ahead of next year's World Cup, patience is at a minimum with head coach Eddie Jones.
