Rugby Championship 2021 LIVE: Springboks stun All Blacks, Wallabies thump Pumas

They’ve done it. Somehow, South Africa win

An instant classic.

The All Blacks were penalised for being offside directly in front of their posts, inside their 22.

Elton Jantjies did the rest.

Springboks win.

Full time – RSA 31-29 NZL

The Springboks have one last shot

They won a penalty just inside their half with 10 seconds to play.

Francois Steyn stepped up and put the ball inside the All Blacks’ 22.

They have a lineout and the ball.

A penalty goal or try will win it.

This is manic.

The All Blacks won the ball from the restart and immediately earned a penalty.

Jordie Barrett did the rest, from 35 out.

The Springboks are in front, again! Jantjies nails a drop goal!

Wow.

As soon as the Springboks earned an advantage, the reserve playmaker snapped a shot at goal.

It sailed through the posts, and South Africa is back in front.

Barrett puts All Blacks in front

The officiating in this match has been poor, to put it kindly.

Several questionable decisions have been made in the second half and one of those bizarre calls gave Jordie Barrett the chance to edge his side in front with five minutes to play.

He made no mistake. The All Blacks lead by one.

That shot at goal was from an identical distance as his match winner this time last week, but from the right instead of the left.

There’s one kick in it.

Poll: Who will finish best?

Just under 20 minutes to play

And the All Blacks are camped on the Springboks’ line.

They want seven points, not three.

Jantjies puts Boks further in front

Handre Pollard’s wayward night with the kicking tee has seen the goal kicking duties handed to Elton Jantjies.

The lead is now five.

TRY! Springboks hit the front

The Springboks are in front.

Makazole Mapimpi dived over in the left corner after relentless pressure inside the All Blacks’ 22.

The opportunity was created by a brilliant Faf de Klerk pass, the territory created by a 50-22 off the boot of veteran Francois Steyn.

This is some game.
