Robbo's head back on the chopping Bok

The Boks put England on the rocks    Dead man walking?

Twickenham, Second Test: England 14-25 South Africa;
Series drawn 1-1

England coach Andy Robinson is under mounting pressure tonight following a 25-14 defeat to South Africa.

It was England's eigth defeat in their last nine Tests - equalling the worst sequence in their 135-year history - and the Springboks' first win at Twickenham for nine years.

Having been 14-3 up midway through the first-half, the home side's collapse was nothing short of abysmal as they suffered their third loss of the autumn following defeats to the All Blacks and Argentina.

The odds are that Robinson will be out on his ear before next year's World Cup; the only question that remains is whether he'll be in charge for the Six Nations.

Watch highlights of the Springboks' success tomorrow afternoon on BBC Two at 1:35.
