It is not every day you see the All Blacks score five tries and end up being the losing side especially when they are playing in their own territory where they are the most ruthless and dangerous. When it happens, you can safely declare that the Springboks stun All Blacks with ease!

The Springboks, led by Siya Kolisi, came down from 12-0 to beat New Zealand by a small margin, 34-36, at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington in the fourth round of the rugby championship on a Saturday morning.

The victory meant a lot to the players and the spectators as some of them were even crying, expressing their joy and love for the Springboks. Beating the World Champions is a big achievement, more especially doing it in away from home.

Siya Kolisi at the Helm When Springboks Stun All Blacks

Here’s what winning Springbok captain Siya Kolisi had to say after their thrilling victory over New Zealand.

South African went into the encounter as underdogs, and everybody including rugby pundits wrote them off. Referee Nigel Owens made a couple of shocking decisions (largely by not making decisions) that gave the All Blacks an advantage. But Kolisi and his men were determined to finally put down the “unbeatable” New Zealand after years of coming up short.

It was the first time the Springboks have won at the Westpac Stadium since 1998 and is was the first win against the All Black since 2014. It was also their first victory on New Zealand soil in nine years.

Here is the video of the Boks giving the All Blacks their first taste of defeat in the Rugby Championship since 2015 (15 Tests)
