Patrick Lambie kicks A Penalty To Give South Africa A Win

New Zealand was winning with a lead in the score with just a bare 3 minutes left in the match when Wayne Barnes the referee made a penalty decision after replacing Liam Messam who had shoulder charged Schalk Burger. The replacement was Patrick Lambie who had the nerves to make a 55metere penalty shot and this secured the first win of South Africaover the All Blacks since the game in 2011.
This became the perfect end to the breath stopping matches that had witnessed New Zealand come back from a deficit of 11 points and take the lead by one point with just 69 minutes to go in the match. New Zealand had already won the 13th Rugby Championship after they beat Argentina by 34-13 as there was no more competition in the match.
At this game, New Zealand had opened by scoring a penalty earlier from Beauden Barrett and brought the crowd up on their feet. South Africa were willing to keep the ball with them and this try paid off perfectly as they scored a goal in the 11th minute and this gave the team take the match towards their own line.
The second penalty saw Barrett narrowing down the gap but the Springbok players were playing so good that the left hand touch line that came from Bryan Habana witnessed Handrè Pollard to take over from 15 meter and converted the match. New Zealand grabbed the opportunity to lead in the second attempt and that was in about four minutes after passing the ball through six passes with the help of the replaced hooker Ben Coles who slid under the left hand corner. Lambie had the final say in the match with his the kick of a perfectionist that looked nothing short of never-ending.
