All Blacks beat Springboks 14-10 in Rugby Championship

2014-09-13 12:03

Captain Richie McCaw scored a crucial second-half try from a sputtering attack as New Zealand ground out a 14-10 win over South Africa today to stay unbeaten after four rounds of the Rugby Championship.

McCaw’s 24th try in his 131st test allowed New Zealand to overturn a 7-6 first-half deficit and add to its two wins and a draw in its previous Championship matches.

The All Blacks remain unbeaten in 15 matches in the four-nation tournament since its inception in 2012 and now close on their third straight title.

But New Zealand had to hold out under immense pressure through the last five minutes as South Africa relentlessly pressed its goalline.

Tactical errors finally cost the Springboks who suffered their sixth straight loss to New Zealand.
