The only bad news for the locals was the injury of Faf De Klerk, in the first minutes of the match in which New Zealand barely managed to discount with a penalty from Jordie Barrett and a try of Shannon Frizellin the last minutes, which was converted by Richie Mo’unga.

Next week, both teams will meet again in Johannesburgwhere the Springboks will seek to ratify this excellent start against a very pressured All Blacks and with their head coach Ian Foster hanging by a thread.
