The South Africa coaches had made 12 changes to the team that beat the Lions in midweek but it was still packed with Springboks.


Australia finished stronger...and Lolesio’s 78th minute penalty proved to be enough to spark jubilation among the Wallabies players and fans.

The All Blacks...were clinging to a 7-6 lead after 30 minutes but by the final whistle had outscored Fiji by nine tries to one.

They were second best in the forward exchanges, made too many basic errors and came nowhere near Argentina’s tempo.
