Hansen praises New Zealand fight in last-gasp win over Boks

Francois Louw will start at No 8 for the boks

Despite the loss, South Africa finished second, and Erasmus praised New Zealand's resilience.

"It could easily have been one that they let go and allowed South Africa to win". It was tough and I am really proud of the boys.

Savea and Mo'unga then combined to win it, ensuring the All Blacks finish another Rugby Championship - when they claimed their sixth title in seven years - with a win that will give them as much pleasure as the championship.

The result was a bitter blow for the Springboks, who won the possession and territory battles, as they sought successive wins over the All Blacks for the first time since 2009.

New Zealand were stunned 36-34 at home by South Africa last month, leading scrum-half TJ Perenara to say they wanted to "right a wrong" in Pretoria.

"We have every confidence he will do well with the operation and like any fracture it will probably take about three months for the bone to get strong and we'll take it step by step", Page said.

"There was always plenty of time on the clock, even though we were down by 17 points, there was always time on the clock for us to get back into the game".

Oil drops on expectations Iran will maintain some exports

"On the two games we were split on the scoreboard and tonight we were a bit fortunate to come out on top. Many sportsmen have had this injury as have people in other walks of life and they usually make a good recovery".

Losing was a wake-up call for New Zealand, and centre Ryan Crotty said it dispelled a media view that the great All Blacks-Springboks rivalry had lost relevance.

It seemed nearly surreal that South Africa were dominating territory and possession against the world champions and Pollard kicked another penalty on 13 minutes for a six-point lead.

New Zealand's Beauden Barrett kicks a penalty during the Rugby Championship match between South Africa and New Zealand at Loftus Versfeld stadium in Pretoria, South Africa, Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

The world champions were on the backfoot for most of the contest, conceding a 17-point deficit before staging a late comeback where they scored 19 unanswered points to prevail in the dying moments of the game.

The All Blacks got off to a flying start when the two sides met in Wellington, but it was all South Africa in the opening stages this time around and Pollard booted them in front with a mammoth penalty four minutes in.

Pollard converted a Jesse Kriel try and slotted a penalty for a 10-point lead that stretched to 23-6 when Damian de Allende scored and the fly-half converted again.
