Ardie Savea inspired New Zealand’s stunning victory over South Africa on Saturday

New Zealand eased the pressure on coach Ian Foster with a stunning 35-23 win over South Africa in their Rugby Championship clash at Fortress Ellis Park on Saturday.

Ardie Savea was an inspiration as the All Blacks staged a late push to silence the 61,519 crowd and avoid a fourth successive Test defeat.

South Africa: Trials: Lukhanyo Am, Makazole Mapimpi; Conversions: Main Pollard 2; Penalties: 3

New Zealand: Trials: Sam Cane, Samisoni Taukei’aho, David Havili, Scott Barrett; Conversions: Richie Mo’unga 3; Penalties: 3

Center David Havili and lock Scott Barrett scored late tries, while captain Sam Cane and hooker Samisoni Taukeiaho also went through whitewash to earn what will be seen as a famous win after losing five of their previous six Tests .

The Springboks weren’t as clinical as they had been in the 26-10 win over the visitors the previous week as they scored tries through sublime center Lukhanyo Am and winger Makazole Mapimpi, but faced vastly improved opponents.

Whether the win is enough to save Foster’s job will become clear in the coming days.
