It’s been almost two years since the New Zealand All Blacks have lost a rugby union game.
But South Africa has put an end to the Kiwi’s pursuit to extend their reign to a 23-match winning streak, beating the All Blacks 27-25.
Pat Lambie’s awesome 55-metre penalty in the last 90 seconds of the game ended a five test, three-year drought for the Springboks against New Zealand.
The win saw the 64,000 fans at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on their feet.
Down 21-13 at half time the All Blacks managed to fight back with two late tries, and lead 25-24 with just seven minute remaining, but it was not enough.
The win has will have improved the Boks confidence against the Kiwi side, positioning them as a force to be reckoned with at the World Cup which is under a year away.
