A few weeks after his "daylight robbery" in Gqeberha, when he stopped Argentina from scoring a try by casually plucking the ball away, Lukhanyo Am was at it again in the Springboks' Rugby Championship climax against the All Blacks on Saturday.

In conjuring up his piece of magic, South Africa's outside centre is sure to go viral on social media with an outrageous backwards pass with his left hand that set up fellow midfielder Damian de Allende for a try.

The build-up was rather innocuous, with skipper Siya Kolisi stifled at a ruck, leading to a New Zealand turnover.

But the Kiwis tried to play the ball quickly, forcing hooker Codie Taylor into knocking the ball back.

Am pounced, throwing his amazing pass to Sbu Nkosi, who delayed his own pas just long enough for De Allende to go over.
