Springboks defeat the All Blacks – Saturday 15 September 2018.

The Springboks Victory

The Springboks scored one of the most phenomenal and possibly one of the most important wins in their history. Saturday 15 September 2018 they stunned the world champion All Blacks 36-34 in their Castle Lager Rugby Championship game in Wellington.

Above all phenomenal game will leave the rugby world sighing with relief and leave South Africa with renewed hope. The Boks achieved the impossible. As they rose from 12-0 down to seize a game that nobody ever gave them a chance of winning.

Not only was it the Boks first win in New Zealand since 2009. Its a win that comes at a time when the Boks have fallen to seventh in the world. Hence this wasn’t just  a win that was just needed by the Springboks and South Africa. It was a win that was needed by the rugby world.

The victory for the Springboks may not mean much in terms of the world rankings. It may not even convey a stagger in the All Blacks invincibility. The win proves that dreams for rugby players across the globe have not faded completely.  is the necessary fuel for the belief that rugby can once again have a rivalry.

Not only did the Springboks score their most points ever in New Zealand but they did it by going toe to toe with the world’s best.The Springboks body language only got bolder, and the talking on the field got louder. Not only did they find belief in themselves again, but they also provided hope for a country so desperately in need of an elixir that even a close loss would have been tolerated.

A Game to be Remembered

This game will go down in history because the Springboks were written off, but they never gave up. It will go down in history as a classic, not only because of the beauty of the tries, or the score line.It will go down in history because it happened in a place where the All Blacks simply don’t lose. Therefore will be remembered because the Boks still held their heads up high.

As a result they were outscored six tries to five; decisions that went against them cost them points that (most notably a clear knock on in the lead up to the Rieko Loane try), and a debatable yellow card for Willie Le Roux turned the game against them.
