England have lost the Test series 2-0 to South Africa with one match to play

England’s defeat by South Africa was marred by a post-match confrontation between players Mike Brown and Joe Marler and fans.

The Harlequins duo exchanged angry words with supporters after England lost their fifth straight Test, beaten 23-12 by South Africa in Bloemfontein.

England head coach Eddie Jones said he did not see the incident.

But asked if his players won or lost with dignity, he told BBC Radio 5 live: “I think they always do.”

England led 12-0 but the defeat means South Africa have wrapped up the series 2-0 with one match to play.

A further sign of England’s frustration came when scrum-half Ben Youngs walked away from a television interview after one question.

He subsequently apologised on social media for conduct that was strongly criticised by Sir Clive Woodward in his role as a pundit.

“Just wanted to say sorry I walked off during my interview with Sky Sports,” Youngs said on Twitter.

“Obviously was very emotional and disappointed with result. We go again in Cape Town.”
