South Africa set new Test record in stunning All Blacks upset

South Africa celebrate following The Rugby Championship match between the New Zealand All Blacks

It got even better for the Springboks just over the half-hour mark when Malcolm Marx sneaked past the All Black defence to score the South Africans' third try of the match after a powerful driving maul from a lineout to increase the lead to nine points and silence the Wellington crowd. We were very close to losing three in a row and that puts pressure [on the team] and takes a lot of belief away.

The 36 points scored by the Boks is the most points any New Zealand side in history have conceded on home soil.

"We can't get ahead of ourselves because we still have two matches to play back at home".

The Boks came back stronger from the break as they further increased their lead to 14 points through substitute Cheslin Kolbe who touched down for his first worldwide try after he came on for Lukhanyo Am.

Captain Siya Kolisi said the win was special, given the many challenges faced by the team in the build-up to the tie and during the 80 minutes.

"Throughout the week‚ we focused on not switching off at any moment in the game because if you do that they will pounce on you‚" he said.

"I'm very pleased. It's been a very tough weeks for the boys".


"It's a special win, a special day, and I'm so proud of the guys".

"Congratulations to South Africa".

Willie le Roux leaps into the air after kicking the ball out to clinch victory for the Springboks against the All Blacks.

Steve Hansen's side produced an uncharacteristic error-strewn performance as a lively South African side punished their southern hemisphere rivals en route to a famous victory.

From then on, the All Blacks were chasing the game and while they struck back with Ioane's first try, the Springboks went into halftime with a 24-17 lead following Handre Pollard's only penalty.

Three minutes from the break‚ the All Blacks reduced the deficit to four points through crowd favourite Rieko Ioane but Beauden Barrett missed his second conversion.
