South Africa coach Heyneke Meyer insisted that his side has a lot to work to do ahead of facing Scotland. 

The Boks came from 12-3 behind to win 12-16 in Dublin against Ireland, tightening up their defence and taking control of the match in the second half. Following a mixed tournament in 2012's Rugby Championship, Meyer was happy to get a result.

South Africa will now travel to Edinburgh to take on Scotland at Murrayfield, before finishing off their tour against England at Twickenham Stadium.

And head coach Meyer insisted that his side still has a lot to work on ahead of facing the Scots.

"We've been under the sword a few times this year and we'll take a lot from our win against Ireland," said Meyer.

"But we have to keep our feet on the ground and stay humble. There's still stuff to learn and Scotland are waiting for us.

"We'd like to stay unbeaten on this tour but Scotland are a great team so we won't be arrogant.

"There is a lot of confidence growing in this team. There's a great vibe.

"Losing to Ireland would have been a huge setback because I have so much faith in this team and what they do."
