  • Description

    SOUTH AFRICA DESERVEDLY WON THE FIRST MATCH OF THE SERIES AGAINST AUSTRALIA YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) BY 14 POINTS TO 3.

    FILM SHOWS PLAY DURING THE SECOND HALF, WHEN HARD, RUGGED FOOTBALL BY SOUTH AFRICA KEPT AUSTRALIA IN THEIR OWN HALF OF THE PITCH.

    A RECORD CROWD OF 52,000 SAW MAN-OF-THE-MATCH K.OXLEE SCORE 8 OF SOUTH AFRICA'S POINTS TO TAKE HIS INTERNATIONAL TOTAL TO 61 -- BEATING THE SOUTH AFRICAN SPRINGBOK RECORD.

    A PENALTY BY OXLEE AND A TRY BY CILLIERS MADE THE SCORE 6-0 TO SOUTH AFRICA AT HALF-TIME.IN THE SECOND HALF BEDFORD SCORED A TRY WHICH OXLEE CONVERTED, AND LATER THE SAME KICKER LANDED TWO PENALTY GOALS GIVING SOUTH AFRICA 14 POINTS.AUSTRALIA'S 3 POINTS CAME FROM A TRY BY McMULLEN.

    THE SCORE WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE EQUAL BUT FOR SOUTH AFRICA'S POLICY OF PREVENTING THE AUSTRALIAN WALLASIES FROM GETTING NEAR THEIR TWENTY-FIVE YARD LINE.SIX ATTEMPTS FOR PENALTY AND DROPPED GOALS FROM 40 TO 54 YARDS BY THE AUSTRALIANS FELL SHORT OR NARROWLY MISSED.
