Rugby-Boks pile more misery on ill-disciplined England

BLOEMFONTEIN, June 16 (Reuters) - South Africa profited from a second-half penalty try to inflict more misery on England with a 23-12 victory and a series win in the second test at the Free State Stadium on Saturday.

Poor discipline cost England again as they slipped to a fifth test loss in a row, piling the pressure on coach Eddie Jones some 15 months out from the World Cup in Japan next year.

Number eight Duane Vermeulen also scored a try for the Springboks, while flyhalf Handre Pollard kicked three penalties and a conversion in a game that did not have the same high drama as the first test at Ellis Park, but was equally absorbing.

England scored their tries early through wings Mike Brown and Jonny May, while centre Owen Farrell kicked a conversion as they failed to register a point after the 13th minute. (Reporting By Nick Said Editing by Ian Chadband)
