6 moments that mattered

The key moments from the Springboks vs Wallabies match at Newlands.

12th minute: The Springboks opt to kick a penalty to the corner instead of taking a shot at goal. Adriaan Strauss crashes over for the first try of the match two phases after the resulting lineout.

14th minute: The hosts attack from deep directly from the restart. Slick handling by both centres allows Zane Kirchner to run in a long-distance try.

28th minute: A dangerous tackle by Michael Hooper on Eben Etzebeth earns the Wallabies flank a yellow card, handing the Springboks a numerical advantage for 10 minutes. South Africa stretch their lead by only three points, but Australia are forced to defend a great deal in this period, sapping their energy.

40th minute: Flip van der Merwe receives a yellow card after his forearm made contact with Joe Tomane’s face during an attempted tackle. It gives the visitors a way back into the match leading into half-time.

66th minute: Duane Vermeulen receives a yellow card for a deliberate knock-down. The numerical disadvantage makes it tough for South Africa to earn the bonus point which would aid their challenge for tournament honours.

72nd minute: A brilliant pass from the base by Fourie du Preez allows Willie le Roux to score in the blindside corner. The try puts a spring in South Africa’s step as they chase the bonus point. However, it does not materialise.
