One of the best test matches we’ve seen in a long, long time today, the lead changed hands four times in the final five minutes and the final score at the Cbus Super Stadium at the Gold Cost Australia was 31-29 a great game in their 101st game against each other. The All Blacks failed to score a try in the second half of the match, something that is rarely done from the Kiwi’s.
The All Blacks are the Rugby Championship Champions for 2021 but this was a massive victory for the South African’s to topple the All Blacks. Both sides will now have a short break before the head up north to take on the Northern Hemisphere teams. Two of the best sides in the world and boy did they both play like it today a cracking match and rugby the way it should be played.
Compared to that awful stuff we watched in the summer of high balls between the Lions and the Springboks. Rugby was the real winner today between these two great rugby nations.

For all the times New Zealand have beaten the Springboks in the final 10 minutes, it feels so good to be on the other side of it! #RSAvNZL
