ABs comeback to steal win in Springbok clash

By Tamati Tiananga

The All Blacks managed to keep their composure to beat the Springboks on home turf this morning.

Ben Smith scored their first try, Dane Cole landing their second try, followed by Captain Richie McCaw. But the homeside kept the pressure on the All Blacks picking up two tries to Willie Le Roux and Jesse Kriel.

After 80mins, the All Blacks took the win 27-20 in the Investec Rugby Championship at Ellis Park, Johannesburg last night.

This was also a special occasion for Lima Sopoaga who made his debut in the black jumper.

The All Blacks now head to Australia for the first test against the Wallabies.
