Watch official World Cup highlights of New Zealand's close victory over South Africa
New Zealand booked their place in the 2015 World Cup final with a narrow win over South Africa at a rain-soaked Twickenham. This is the All Black’s fourth World Cup final as they bid to become the first side to successfully defend their title.
In this epic semi-final, some ill-discipline from the All Blacks meant that they were five points behind at half-time with a man in the sin-bin as four penalties from Handre Pollard cancelled out Jerome Kaino’s early try. In total New Zealand conceded thirteen penalties to South Africa’s six.
However after an earlier missed conversion, a Dan Carter drop-goal and a Beauden Barrett try put the defending champions ahead. The All Blacks put up a defensive wall at the end – resisting a barrage from the Southboks in the final twelve minutes – and they held their nerve to win the game by two points – Watch official World Cup highlights here.
