New Zealand 16 South Africa 16
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 his All Blacks counterpart Aaron Smith to silence most of the sold-out 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 September 21st.
All Blacks captain Kieran Read said the hosts were “disappointed” with the result at the Wellington Regional Stadium.
“It was one of those things, the bounce of the ball in the 80th minute and you draw the Test match,” Read told reporters.
“It’s a mixed feeling. We don’t go out there to draw. We want to win. Our shed is naturally down.”
These extensions are quite elegant!!
