Wales have beaten South Africa 12 points to six at the Millennium Stadium to put a close to their 2014 Autumn Internationals.

The second half began just with just three points each after the Springboks levelled with a Leigh Halfpenny penalty.

It was a historic win for Gatland's men after winning just two of 29 matches against South Africa.

The last time Wales beat a southern hemisphere side was in 2008.

It's been a mixed series for the Welsh side after narrowly missing out to Australia 28-33 in their first game. They survived a late scare to beat Fiji 18-13 but failed to maintain momentum after an impressive 70 minutes against New Zealand last weekend losing 16 points to 34.

HT: Wales 3 - 3 South Africa

In a closely fought first half, Wales are level with South Africa at the Millennium Stadium.

Wales began their final match of the Autumn Series positively when Leigh Halfpenny broke the deadlock with a penalty after three minutes. The lead didn't last after Pat Lambie levelled the score shortly after.
