What an effort from Kurtley Beale!
The Rugby Championship is in full swing, as New Zealand faced a brave Argentina challenge today but ultimately saw them off in style, before Australia and South Africa played out an enthralling draw, 23 points apiece.
The Wallabies came away from their trip to Dunedin with great credit, falling to the All Blacks by six points. However, they came up against a rejuvenated Springbok outfit today.
South Africa have put a disappointing 2016 behind them, going undefeated so far this season, after a series victory over France in June and two wins over the Pumas.
This all made for an absorbing test match today in Perth today.
While Australia led for much of the game, it was the visitors who came roaring back, and had an opportunity to win the game late on, but Elton Jantjies’ drop goal effort was charged down.
However, undoubtedly the moment of the match came when Kurtley Beale crossed the Springbok line after selling an almighty dummy.
Credit must go to Australia tighthead Sekope Kepu for the block on a would-be defender.
South Africa now travel to New Zealand next week to take on the All Blacks, while Australia host Argentina.
