Waisake Naholo of the All Blacks makes a break against Argentina

Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus has said that the late substitutions of Willie Le Roux and Faf De Klerk, in Saturday's 32-20 defeat to the All Blacks, was forced and not a preempted decision.

He will not be able to fly back to New Zealand with the rest of the team and is expected to stay in South Africa for a week. "It gives me hope, it tells me if we are doing things right and give more caps to certain guys in pressure situations, I really think we in with a chance at next year's World Cup". "Both teams were outstanding and across the two games we are split even on the scoreboard", New Zealand captain Kieran Read said at the post-match presentation.

All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen also stressed that he expected to see Cane return at some point in 2019.

Erasmus said he was happy that matches between the Springboks and the All Blacks are no longer one-sided. "Never giving in. Keep knocking on the door".

"There have been two points separating us in the last two matches".

His 1998 team scored three tries in the final 14 minutes to beat John Hart's All Blacks, 24-23, in Durban.

"Everybody who watched tonight ... some will be disappointed, but they can't be disappointed in the rugby that was played".

Down 23-6, New Zealand responded with a score by scrumhalf Aaron Smith, against the run of play but taken with clinical efficiency when hooker Codie Taylor made the first clean break of the game for the New Zealanders and Smith, running in support, ensured it wasn't wasted.

Savea and Mo'unga then combined to win it, ensuring the All Blacks finish another Rugby Championship - when they claimed their sixth title in seven years - with a win that will give them as much pleasure as the championship.

"We let it go at the end, they were more alert than us", Kolisi said.
