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.

Nienaber: Bok fightback undone by inaccuracy

Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber lamented a lack of accuracy as his team’s fightback from a 15-0 deficit to lead 23-21 with 12 minutes remaining, ultimately wasn’t enough to record a third successive victory over New Zealand in a Castle Lager Rugby Championship match at the Emirates Airline Park on Saturday.
