While the Springboks were well on their way to a famous 36-34 victory over their fiercest rivals - the All Blacks - cameras picked up a spectator waving the flag near the players' tunnel.

It was replaced in 1994 - some 24 years ago - by the current flag in time for the first elections after the apartheid era had ended.
