LONDON: South Africa completed an unbeaten tour of Europe with a 16-15 victory over England at Twickenham on Saturday that helped end the hosts' hopes of a top four seeding at the 2015 World Cup.

Springbok flanker Willem Alberts's try, the only one of the match, early in the second half proved the decisive score of a rainswept clash.
