Congratulations to the Springboks on a victorious start to the Rugby Championship with a win over All Blacks.
The Springboks kicked off their 2022 Rugby Championship with an emphatic 26-10 victory against New Zealand’s All Blacks at Mbombela stadium this evening.
A converted try by Kurt Arendse in the first half, and a penalty by Handre Pollard, made life easy for the Springboks against the All Blacks.
The Boks dominated the proceeding throughout the opening half and were enjoying a 10-3 lead at halftime.
In the second half, the Boks continued from where they had left off.
The All Blacks scored a try in the dying minutes of the match, but Willie le Roux replied with a Springboks try as South Africa enjoyed an emphatic 26-10 win against their old nemesis.
