England ended their tour of South Africa on a positive note as they fought back to claim a 14-14 draw in the third Test.
Danny Care gave them an early lead by marking his international return with a try at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium but JP Pietersen looked to have given the Springboks a decisive edge just after the hour.
England did not wilt and Owen Farrell's second penalty of a disjointed and scrappy contest played out in wet conditions secured a draw.
Farrell even had a late chance to win the game but sliced a drop-goal attempt horribly wide.
But after defeats in Durban and Johannesburg - and nine in succession in total to the Springboks - England will have been happy to settle for only the second draw in history between the two sides.
England head coach Stuart Lancaster felt the experience of the tour would prove invaluable to his young players.
"Obviously the rain made it difficult for both sides," he said on Sky Sports 1. "It was a tight game. Both sides tightened up, particularly in the second half. I thought we defended much, much better than last week, so delighted with that.
"A couple of ill-disciplined pens didn't go our way, but overall delighted with the efforts the boys put in over the course of the tour.
"It could have been won with the clock done. They're the small margins. But when Owen [Farrell] came on, we had an under-21 10,12,13. We've got young lads making their debut - Alex Goode was outstanding at full-back.
"Overall, when you look at where we were and where we are now, I think we're in a good place."
Springboks skipper Jean de Villiers was disappointed with his team's performance, but praised England for their gutsy effort.
"Credit to England," he said. "They played well. I thought we weren't good at all tonight. We'll have to take a hard look at ourselves.
"Our option-taking was poor at times. Obviously the weather doesn't make it any easier. Credit to them - they did well. At least we didn't lose the game - that's the only positive we can take out of this."
