“We have got to look at the positive things we did in this game. We set ourselves up to win the game, so we did a lot of very good things. We have got to make sure we have a similar sort of start next week.
“South Africa will no doubt improve, and hopefully we will improve. It sets itself up for a good second Test. You have got two teams highly-motivated.
When you go down to 12 men against the world champions, it is very difficult. The effort was huge. We were on the wrong side of the referee, and we need to go away and look at the penalties we conceded and the yellow cards.
“It was a big step up from our last performance, there is no doubt about that, but I am really frustrated with the discipline. The players worked so hard this week, and people will see we put in a pretty solid effort.
“What we have got to do is focus on the second Test, and we can look forward to that. It was a big effort, but it was one that got away – the world champions in their back-yard.”
