Follow live as the All Blacks take on the Springboks in their Rugby Championship clash in Wellington

Aphiwe Dyantyi has refused to take the credit after scoring two tries in the Springboks' 36-34 Rugby Championship win against the All Blacks at the Westpac Stadium on Saturday.

A drop goal would have been seen New Zealand win but they continued to push for a try, with South Africa repelling numerous attacks as the clocked turned red.

"Not just because we beat New Zealand but we were very close to losing three in a row and that puts pressure on a team and takes belief away".

After the fourth round of the Rugby Championship, the All Blacks have 16 points, followed by South Africa on 10, with Argentina third with eight points after beating Australia who are last with five points.

Though the Boks were impressive for this bonus-point victory against their bitter rivals in all facets of the game‚ they partly have All Blacks flyhalf Beauden Barrett to thank as he missed four easy conversions that could have proved the difference.

"The boys showed guts, and I am so glad for them", said Erasmus. Our main thing is effort in our team, we've let ourselves down in the last couple of games.

"I's an awesome day for the team and an awesome day for South Africa", captain Siya Kolisi said.

"When we started planning we thought if there's one way to come back it's to beat New Zealand in New Zealand".

Both centres - Damian de Allende and Lukhanyo Am - left the field with injuries while Le Roux was sin-binned late in the match.

The All Blacks had won 15 consecutive Rugby Championship fixtures heading into that clash with the Springboks, going two years undefeated in the competition.

"Throughout the week‚ we focused on not switching off at any moment in the game because if you do that they will pounce on you‚" he said.

Steve Hansen's side produced an uncharacteristic error-strewn performance as a lively South African side punished their southern hemisphere rivals en route to a famous victory.
