Simply too many errors from South Africa! Their halfbacks were terrible and their defensive structures even worse. Scrums and lineouts were also a shambles at times. Simply not good enough.
The Springboks' next Rugby Championship Test is against the Wallabies in Pretoria on October 1.

Boks have to defend the wide channel given the danger there, which then leaves the inside channel much more vulnerable— Front Row Grunt (@FrontRowGrunt) September 17, 2016

67'- NO TRY!
The ball was passed in-field by an All Black, it then came off Franco Mostert's hands, before the Kiwi scrumhalf dotted it down. But he grounded it on the touch-in-goal-line as well, so the try cannot be awarded.

65'- Barrett misses with his conversion attempt.
NZ 34-13 SA
64'- TRY to the All Blacks!
