World champions South Africa spoilt Ireland's return to Lansdowne Road with a 23-21 victory here on Saturday that kept alive hopes of a first Springbok grand slam in 50 years. South Africa were seemingly out of sight at 23-9 in front mid-way through the second half after tries from Juan Smith and Gio Aplon before Ireland crossed the Springbok line courtesy of Tommy Bowe and Rob Kearney.

Full-back Kearney's score cut South Africa's lead to 23-21.
