CAPE TOWN – Coach Eddie Jones has picked wing Jonny May and young loose-forward Tom Curry as the stand-out performers on England's tour of South Africa that ended with a consolation 25-10 victory at Newlands on Saturday.
The Springboks won the series 2-1, but were out-thought by England in wet and windy conditions in the final test to end the five-match losing streak that had put pressure on Jones a little over a year out from the World Cup.
May scored a late try in the corner after an excellent cross-field kick from flyhalf Danny Cipriani, his third of the series and a 17th in 37 tests.
"Jonny May has been outstanding all tour, he's been incredible. He scored three tries and was involved in at least two or three others," Jones said.
The coach was also pleased with the development of Curry, who was given a baptism of fire against a muscular Bok pack.
