What a match!
It started with the Boks dominating the first 20 minutes but a missed penalty by Pollard seemed to change the momentum. After a mistake by Faf de Klerk, the All Blacks pounced and scored 2 tries within minutes of each other going into the break with a 17 – 3 lead.
The Springboks had a good second half fighting back but the deficit was just too great to conquer and eventually came out as 23- 13 winners.
The All Blacks were deserving winners after their 2 magnificent tries. No doubt the French referee will receive criticism after a few doubtful decisions.
Then game set the tone for a fantastic Rugby World Cup and we cannot wait for the rest of the matches.
