South Africa managed to secure a 36-34 victory over New Zealand in a most unbelievable outcome. Many South Africans thought the chance of winning the lotto was more likely than the Boks defeating the All Blacks in their home turf.

This was the All Blacks' first loss in the Rugby Championship in 3 years. They're still at the top with 2 more rounds still to play though.

New Zealand scored 6 tries and South Africa 5, and the difference in score came through 4 missed kicks at goal from Beauden Barrett while South's Handré Pollard secured 5 kicks.

@ChristoDuPless2 - One of the best things about being a South African rugby supporter is the Xhosa commentary. These guys have passion to burn, enjoyed that sooooo much!!! When the commentators break out in song, you know the moment is lit #NZLvRSA
