The Springbok Women surprised England Women with their physicality which caused the England Women to make several unforced errors. Apart from the try, the England Women scored the Springbok Women were the dominant team during the first twenty minutes of play.

The power of the England Women's forwards was their main weapon as the forwards scored all their tries in the first half to establish a 29-00 lead at the halftime break. The two yellow cards shown to the Springbok Women's locks did not help.
