New Zealand clinch epic thriller in Johannesburg

The All Blacks scored early and late in their second Castle Lager Rugby Championship Test against the Springboks in Johannesburg on Saturday to set up a 35-23 victory over the home side. Leading 15-0 after 30 minutes, New Zealand were overhauled by the Boks with less than 15 minutes to play when SA held a 23-21 lead, but that was snuffed out by two late tries by the visitors.
