Wales coach Warren Gatland: “It was important for us. We deserved it and it was nice to finish the autumn on a win.

“Some of the stuff we created early on could’ve taken the game out of sight in our favour but decisions we made in the second half nearly killed us.

“We need to create depth and play in certain ways against certain teams. Given the injuries we’ve had, I’m happy we’ve started developing that depth.”

On next year’s Six Nations: “We had a really close Six Nations last year and from my point of view, Scotland could make it close and everybody keeps talking about England and Ireland, so that will do me just fine.”

South Africa flanker Siya Kolisi: “We’re very disappointed. The way we started today wasn’t good enough and we didn’t have the patience. We have to be more disciplined at the end of the game and not make silly mistakes. We have to be better than this next year.”
