New Zealand 34-36 South Africa: All Blacks Punished for Careless Exhibition

Cheslin Kolbe is congratulated by Willie le Roux after his interception attempt in the second half

South Africa surprised New Zealand on their own ground on Saturday, but the All Blacks were only to blame for their 36-34 defeat.

The winger Aphiwe Dyantyi scored two tries for the Springboks, while Willie le Roux and Cheslin Kolbe were also right-handed in each of the interceptions. Malcolm Marx grabbed the other.

Rieko Ioane scored twice for the All Blacks, while Jordie Barrett, Aaron Smith, Codie Taylor and Ardie Savea also crossed for the home team, but it was a game to forget for Beauden Barrett, as the New Zealand midfielder missed four of his six kicks to the arch, the last two simple efforts that would seem to have turned the game in favor of the hosts.

It was the All Blacks' first defeat against the Springboks in New Zealand since 2009 and kept the Southern Hemisphere championship alive until at least the fifth round of games within two weeks.

"All we wanted to do today was give the best of ourselves, give 100 percent to each other and make sure the guy next to you respects you after the whistle," said Springboks captain, Siya. Kolisi, after the South African men during the last 10 minutes.

& # 39; I have no words, I can not say much. The main thing is the effort in our team, we have been disappointed in the last games. I think we show a little of what we can do tonight.

"We should be proud of ourselves, but there is a lot more work to be done."

Few had given the Springboks any chance of winning the game, as they had lost their last two games and had apparently dropped below the level that led them to win 2-1 in the series to England in June.

Given that the All Blacks have scored 38 or more in each of their Rugby Championship games this season, they knew they would have to score more than 30 to get a chance.

The Springboks started poorly, losing 12-0 in the first 20 minutes, when Jordie Barrett and Smith were replaced by the All Blacks, who demonstrated their excellent ability to dump under pressure.

The problem of wanting to do everything at full speed, however, resulted in poor decision-making when the Springboks pounced on the errors inside the All Blacks' territory to score three unanswered tries in 11 minutes to gain an advantage from 21-12.

As of that moment, the All Blacks were chasing the game and, while they responded with Ioane's first attempt, the Springboks went into the break with a 24-17 advantage after the only penalty of Handre Pollard.

Replacement of the end Kolbe intercepted a pass from Anton Lienert-Brown to give the Springboks a 14-point lead two minutes into the second half, which proved to be the advantage they needed when the All Blacks returned.

Taylor and Savea crossed from the line-out units to establish a scathing ending that ended when Damian McKenzie lost the ball in one inning.

"You have to give them all the credit in the world for the way they defended themselves in that second half," said All Blacks captain Kieran Read.

"We threw everything to them, my boys continued working hard, but the South Africans defended extraordinarily well and obviously they deserved their victory.

"They pushed us and we did not respond the way we needed."
