McCaw leads All Blacks to victory

South Africa 20 New Zealand 27
-
All-action skipper Richie McCaw snatched victory for New Zealand late on against South Africa after a pulsating spectacle in Johannesburg.
-
With the All Blacks 20-17 down - and staring at a second successive defeat to the Springboks for the first time in six years - McCaw outwitted South Africa's lineout and darted over to send the reigning world champions on their way to a seven-point triumph.
-
For so long the Boks, who scored tries through full-back Willie le Roux and centre Jesse Kriel, looked strong but now their Rugby Championship bid is in tatters after back-to-back defeats.
-
Steve Hansen's All Blacks toiled for long periods, but their perseverance paid off as Ben Smith scored a vital try on the stroke of half-time before scores from Dane Coles and McCaw clinched the win.
