The Springboks made an impressive comeback after another shocking first half, but this time fell short and failed to close the game as the Wallabies beat them 41-39 at Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein.

The Boks trailed 13-31 at half-time and fought back to lead 39-38 with only 30 seconds remaining on the clock. Referee Wayne Barnes pinned the Boks at ruck time and Kurtley Beal slotted a heartbreaking penalty to win for the first time in Bloemfontein since 1933.
