Squidge Rugby: So how did South Africa beat the All Blacks?

Squidge Rugby is back with a very quick turnaround, putting together another excellent piece that this time looks at how the Springboks beat the All Blacks 36-34 in their own backyard.

After popular videos featured on here about Sam Warburton and how good the Crusaders actually are, Squidge is back with another top analysis, this time featuring the thrilling contest that was South Africa against New Zealand on Saturday.

The Boks had trailed early so turning things around away from home looked unlikely, especially after a string of poor recent results. But the visitors hung in there and a combination of courage (235 tackles) and self-belief led to them forcing All Black errors.

The schoolboy kicking performance of Beauden Barrett did not help.

A year out from the next Rugby World Cup, it won’t quite be crisis talk just yet, but the rugby world has seen that not only are the Springboks capable of throwing together a performance like this but if pressured, the All Blacks do resemble humans.

With that in mind, Squidge looks at how South Africa pulled it off, and what this tells us about the All Blacks one year out from Japan 2019.
