The British and Irish Lions and South Africa will meet in a series decider next Saturday after the Springboks won the second Test 27-9 at Cape Town Stadium.
The home side pulled away in the second-half, scoring tries through Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhanyo Am after the tourists had led 9-6 at half-time.
Here’s how the Lions rated:
