England go down in Durban
England lost 22-17 to South Africa in the first Test as the hosts overpowered Stuart Lancaster's side in Durban.
The England coach chose two new caps to start in the shape of Harlequins prop Joe Marler and Exeter blindside flanker Tom Johnson, while Ben Foden moved from number 15 to the wing. England's Owen Farell and Morne Steyn kicked two penalties a piece to ensure the scores were level at 6-6 at half-time, before South Africa scored the first try of the game on 47 minutes. It was Steyn who touched down, but he couldn't convert the try, and then Jean de Villiers battered through the England defence not soon after to put South Africa into a 16-6 lead. Two kicks from Farrell brought England back to within four but Steyn added two more penalties for the hosts before Ben Foden scored a last-minute try for Lancaster's side. Overall, South Africa were more dominant than the scoreline suggested and it leaves the England coach with some thinking to do going into the second game of the series at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.
