Replacement scrumhalf Herschel Jantjies scored a try in the final minute of play to help South Africa snatch a 16-16 draw with New Zealand in a tense Rugby Championship clash in Wellington on Saturday.

Jantjies pounced on an error by Aaron Smith to silence most of the soldout crowd, who had until the try been expecting a tight win for the world champions, and secure his team’s morale-boosting draw ahead of the World Cup.

The two traditional rivals meet in their Pool B opener in Yokohama on Sept. 21.
