England have been badly in need of a pick-me-up and if the reptilian extravaganza helps restore morale ahead of the series-shaping second Test in Bloemfontein on Saturday then it will have achieved its goal.
More than looking good, England was rampant in that opening 20, with wing Mike Brown, fullback Elliot Daly and centre and captain Owen Farrell all scoring tries in the first 16 minutes, tearing South Africa apart out wide.
The character shown by a team full of inexperienced players and some tactical changes on the field were two of the main reasons Rassie Erasmus felt the Springboks managed to overturn a significant deficit to beat England by 42-39 in the opening Test of the Castle Lager Incoming Series at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg. "We want to do something special on this tour and the players are all incredibly excited about this challenge and opportunity we have".
"They could have put us away‚" Erasmus acknowledged.
England coach Eddie Jones believes the Springboks played their "get out of jail" card in this Test. Tune into Sky Sports Action and Main Event from 3pm on Saturday June 16 to follow the Rose on England's journey to the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
"Honesty is a big part of it and players need to take responsibility at the same time", he said.
"We know we're up against a very good side, a very physical side so it's going to be a challenge for us but one I feel we're ready for". "We only scraped through‚" said Erasmus.
