"Harris again - (indistinct) at the front of the line, Going to Duncan Robertson, over the head of (indistinct), but the ball bouncing back into his possession. (Indistinct), who scored that dramatic try in the first test, (indistinct) in support. Dawie Snyman, Fawcett goes back, just outside his own line and he misses the ball - Going in defence - just a metre or two from the All Black line. Harvey Norton there, at the front of the line, Terry Harris and Macdonald behind. Macdonald with the palm, good feed, from Sid Going to Robertson. Joe Morgan with Fawcett coming up - the ball is intercepted there by Oosthuizen and Oosthusizen has a clear run in to score. A dramatic score for South Africa, to take them into the lead for the first time. The ball intercepted by Oosthuizen and Oosthuizen did not have a finger laid on him. That vain covering attempt by Duncan Robertson - and that is a dramatic blow for South Africa. Sid Going for once behind an All Black pack that's not really been dominant, with it Syman attempts a drop goal - is it there? It's given".
The Springbok victory means the All Blacks can no longer win the series. South Africa won the first international 16-7 and lost the second 15-9.
