Gerrie Germishuys, the Springbok left wing is tackled by the All Black hooker Tane Norton.
Grant Batty, New Zealand's fiery wings clearing kick is watched by the Springboks Paul Bayvel, Theuns Stofberg, Piston van Wyk and Rampie Stander.
Springbok fullback Dawie Snyman is tackled by All Black centre Joe Morgan as Sid Going moves in.
All Black scrumhalf Sid Going is tackled by the Springbok flanker, Boland Coetzee, as the scrumhalf makes a clearing kick. After Going had a match-winning performance in the second Test, he was in poor form in this third match, both his general play and his goal-kicking being sadly out of touch.
