"South Africa got their World Cup campaign back on track with a convincing 46-6 win over Samoa thanks to a hat-trick from JP Pietersen. A week on from their shock loss to Japan, the Springboks knew that it was win or bust for them, and they came out with intensity from the off." - Planet Rugby

August 3, 2015 - flyhalf Handre Pollard concussion update
"South Africa are sweating on the fitness of flyhalf Handre Pollard ahead of their final Rugby Championship test against Argentina at King's Park on Saturday. The 21-year-old, who was impressive in defeats to Australia and New Zealand in this year's competition, took a blow to the head against the latter in Johannesburg nine days ago. He was cleared to carry on playing in the game, but two days later was diagnosed with delayed concussion and will be assessed again later in the week.... Should he be ruled out or rested, one of Pat Lambie or Morne Steyn will make a return to the starting lineup." - Reuters
