Match Highlights - Springboks vs All Blacks

A converted try in the last play of the Springboks final Rugby Championship match with the All Blacks in Pretoria shattered a South African dream of a double win over the World Champions.

South Africa built up a well-deserved lead against the Steve Hansen’s men, and were poised for a famous victory before that seemingly inevitable late All Blacks surge saw them snatch a 32 – 30 victory over their hosts.
