England Star Flies Home From South Africa For 'Family Reasons'

Dane van Niekerk had a previous ODI high score of 81

And he got it as tries by wingers Mike Brown and Jonny May, one of which Farrell converted, lifted the tourists into a 12-0 lead on 13 minutes.

If England felt the emotional pull of last weekend's tie, when Siya Kolisi became the first black player to captain South Africa, things are sure to be equally ecstatic in Bloemfontein as they were in Johannesburg.

The dismal run began with a defeat by Scotland in Edinburgh and other Test losses were inflicted by France, Ireland and South Africa (twice).

There was a lot of pushing and shoving during the match, especially from the England team. "We started the game well but it was a bit like a horror movie", said Jones, after the defeat in Bloemfontein. Whether you're winning or losing, you're always under pressure. "I thought the game was a good, hard tough test match".

Winds are expected to continue to bring vog to the central, southern and western parts of Hawaii Island. Just 90 minutes hot lava of the volcano Kilauea dried freshwater lake Greenlake on the Big Island.

England halfback Ben Youngs has issued an apology via social media after cutting short a television interview following his side's series defeat against South Africa.

"It's a tough period at the moment, " Jones said. "We lost the series, we're gutted about that, we'll work hard this week and we look forward to getting it right next week", before disappearing after just 11 seconds. For some reason we are just not handling those key moments in the game well.

Evidence that the tension is affecting both players and coach abounded at Free State Stadium, where Jones turned on a broadcaster by taking exception to the line of questioning. "Now we're going through this bloody tough period". We have won back-to-back Six Nations [in 2016 and 2017], equalled the world record for the most successive [Tier 1] Test wins and beat Australia 3-0 [during June 2016]. "We need to get our pride back". "You'll see a spirited performance in Cape Town".
