The South African rugby team top the Rugby Championship standings after playing to a 16-all draw against New Zealand in Wellington on Saturday. It was only the fourth time in 98 matches between the two rugby giants that a test ended in a draw.
The match was a hard-fought affair, with the Boks dominating the first half, and the Kiwi’s, the second.
The All Blacks managed a try just before half-time through centre, Jack Goodhue but Bok scrumhalf, Herschel Jantjies, was again the South Africans’ star.
His brilliant last-minute try was set up by an equally impressive Cheslin Kolbe, and allowed the Boks back into the game. Flyhalf, Handré Pollard showed nerves of steel and kicked the conversion to secure a 16-all draw.
The Boks now top the table with seven points, followed by New Zealand with six.
