Speaking after the game, the Leicester winger admitted the squad was "disappointed and frustrated" after being unable to make to most of their early advantage again.

Rather than a lack of effort from the players, Jones blamed the barren run on his men trying too hard.

"We are going through a tough period".

Captain Owen Farrell was equally as frustrated with the result and said England will do everything they can to salvage something from the tour in their final Test next Saturday.

"It was pretty much like last week, we had a good 20 minutes, played some superb rugby, but then we just don't handle the key moments of the game", he said.

South Africa brought on fresh props Steven Kitshoff and Thomas du Tolt early in the second half and they soon made their presence as the home team were awarded a penalty try after a scrum.

Their next game is against South Korea on Saturday 23 June, and then against Sweden on Wednesday 27 June. That could spell trouble for Switzerland as they take on Brazil in Group E on Sunday.

While Jones was locking horns with his interviewer in the aftermath of the bad-tempered Test, several players also allowed their frustration to boil over. "That is a possibility".

Cape Town - While he would be the third different Springbok tighthead in four Tests, Sharks juggernaut Thomas du Toit seems especially deserving of a maiden start in the now dead-rubber third encounter against England at Newlands on Saturday.

"This team has got a lot of pride, we have won back-to-back Six Nations, we have equalled the world record for number of Test wins in a row, we have gone to Australia and won 3-0".

"It's a tough period at the minute". Bad penalties that we gave away, bad discipline, a lot of things that we did wrong. We need to stand together, and it doesn't matter what happened - you saw all the guys running in and protecting your mate. Understanding the importance of handling the emotions of the situation. "The players are hurting, the coaches are hurting, I'm hurting and we've just got to keep at it and find a solution, and we will".

Under-pressure Jones demanded a great start from his team to dent the confidence the Springboks gained from a dramatic 42-29 first Test win in Johannesburg last weekend.
