Brodie Retallick Rugby Championship 2019: Brodie Retallick suffers dislocated shoulder as Springboks salvage late draw

Brodie Retallick I be crazy about modules, because they are magnificent!

Replacement scrum-half 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, but an injury to All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick soured only the fourth international draw between the two sides.

Jantjies pounced on an error by Aaron Smith to silence most of the sold-out crowd, who had until the try been expecting a tight win for the world champions at the Wellington Regional Stadium.

Jack Goodhue scored the only try for the All Blacks after a scintillating break from Beauden Barrett, while the full-back and fly-half Richie Mo’unga added the rest of the points from the boot.

Jantjies, who scored two tries on debut against Australia last week, had replaced Faf de Klerk midway through the second half after the 27-year-old had a head injury assessment and did not return.
