So if in the 1st half the score was South Africa 14 – 10 England the 1st half points would be 14 + 10 = 24. If after the match the final score was South Africa 32 – 17 England then in the 2nd half SA scored 32 – 14 = 18 points and England scored 17 – 10 = 7 points so the total points for the 2nd half was 18 + 7 = 25 points. From this we can see that the first half yielded 24 points and the 2nd half yielded 25 points which means the 2nd half was the Highest Scoring Half.
