Pollard produced a superb strike from distance to make it Four minutes later, Anscombe missed touch with a penalty from hand for the second time in the opening stages, and his error was soon compounded when Marx earned a breakdown penalty.
Pollard missed off the tee, though, hooking it wide to the left to let Wales off the hook themselves. Near the half-hour mark, Bok prop Steven Kitshoff was pinged for failing to release at the breakdown, but Anscombe hit the post off the tee from 44 metres or so - failing to add points as Pollard had just minutes earlier.
While the final 10 minutes of the half saw no further points scored, it contained three moments of significance. Firstly, when South Africa No 8 Duane Vermeulen dived off feet at the ruck and Anscombe found touch with the penalty, 14 phases of Welsh attack in the Bok 22 came to nothing when Marx produced a huge steal - his third breakdown turnover of the match.
The Boks then should have notched their first try of the game two minutes before the break, as Papier broke down the blindside off a messy lineout, kicked past North - who did just enough to interfere with the Bok scrum-half without giving away a penalty - but knocked on as he went to regather his kick five metres from the Wales line.
The Boks earned a free kick at the resultant scrum though, tapping and attacking the line with great pace before Kriel looked to dive over and ground the ball.
But on review with the TMO, it was apparent Wales flanker Jenkins had done remarkably well to force his arm under the ball and avoid it touching the grass, holding it up in a monumental piece of defensive work.
The Boks still had a five-metre attacking scrum in dead time of the first period, and after playing away off it, earned a penalty with Wales offside under the posts.
Captain Kolisi and co declined a shot at goal for what would have been a certain three points in favour of another attacking scrum, and it proved the wrong decision when the Boks were forced backwards and Jenkins ended the half four minutes into the red with a breakdown penalty - concluding a sensational 40 minutes for the flanker individually.
An ugly moment from the kickoff saw Wales' Ross Moriarty get his foot stuck on the shoulder of Pieter-Steph du Toit for an awkward fall but South Africa were given the scrum and kicked ahead with another penalty.
The World Cup semi-final between Wales and South Africa is underway after a rousing rendition of their national anthems.
World Cup Final of national anthems. Great anthems and full marks to the mascots who sang every word. Go Wales!
As the All Blacks wallowed after their stunning loss to England in their semi-final, the stage has been set for an all-Northern Hemisphere decider for the first time — if Wales can win.
I think they can really have a go at them. Wales, have not dropped a match this year in competition rugby, with their only losses coming in the World Cup warm up matches.
Along the way, South Africa claimed the Rugby Championship, while the Welsh claimed the Grand Slam for the first time since as they claimed the Six Nations title undefeated.
It showed up the rankings system up as "a joke" as Wales hadn't beaten the All Blacks since Wales actually won three of the first four games between the sides but since then the All Blacks have won the past 30 games.
Should they make the World Cup final, they now won't have to worry about that with the All Blacks playing off for third — but if not, the sides will play off for third in an all-but ceremonial match.
While the side don't want to get ahead of themselves, Walesonline reflected the collective sigh of relief at the All Blacks' fall.
Warren Gatland will make sure of that. But if they can beat the Springboks, then many in this part of the world will be happy New Zealand are not around to contest the final.
There have been no wins against them since Thirty defeats on the bounce. Players will say they never consider such matters, but lurking in the dark recesses of their minds might just be an element of doubt, doubt that can make the difference.

Helen's, Swansea. South Africa. Kings Park , Durban. Ellis Park , Johannesburg. National Stadium , Cardiff.
Wembley Stadium , London , England. Wales No 8 Ross Moriarty spilled the forthcoming restart, however, and from the resultant scrum the Bok pack eked out a penalty with a sustained forward drive.
Pollard stepped up and delivered off the tee again for After 34 minutes, Pollard extended that lead to when Wales hooker Ken Owens came in at the side of a maul after Biggar and Gareth Davies had struggled to execute exit kicks into the wind.
Wales then lost George North to a hamstring problem, but a minute before the break Biggar reduced the deficit to three points after Bok pair Bongi Mbonambi and Duane Vermeulen tackled flanker Aaron Wainwright off the ball.
Both sides headed off thereafter, having struggled to gain any semblance of control in the Test within a dour first half.
The second period started in much the same way, with knock-ons and miscued kicks dictating things, before Biggar levelled the tie six minutes in when the Boks were penalised for going in at the side of a maul.
It was to be South Africa who would notch the opening try, however, when centre De Allende powered to the line past Biggar, Tomos Williams and Owen Watkin after Pollard had sliced into the Wales 22 for the original line-break.
The resulting conversion left things at Having turned down a kickable penalty on the hour mark in search of a try, an exhausting phase Wales attack in the Bok 22 led to another penalty concession by South Africa.
From here, Alun Wyn Jones opted for an attacking scrum rather than simple kick at goal, and it proved inspired.
