Kwagga Smith has scored a late double but it’s too little, too late from the world champion Springboks as the Wallabies win 25-17 at Adelaide Oval.
South Africa has not beaten the Wallabies in Australia since 2013 and Australia go top of the Rugby Championship standings with a 2-1 record.
“Great performance from the Wallabies after really disappointing last Test match against Argentina in Argentina,” Tim Horan says.
“Come over here, six changes to the starting 15 Dave Rennie made, Hunter Paisami was one, Reece Hodge at 15, the forward pack were really strong.
“One of the best Test matches I’ve seen for Matt Philip in the No.5 jersey and that man there, Fraser McReight, two tries.”
