All Blacks start World Cup with win – VIDEO

September 22, 2019

The All Blacks have started the 2019 Rugby World Cup with a hard-fought 23-13 victory over South Africa.

New Zealand produced a sensational 15-minute burst in the first half, which proved too much for South Africa in their World Cup Pool B opener in Yokohama.

The Springboks started brightly and took the lead with a Handre Pollard penalty.

However, Richie Mo’unga drew New Zealand level and two quick tries by George Bridge and Scott Barrett put them in front.

In the second half Pieter-Steph du Toit scored for South Africa and a Pollard secured a long-range drop-goal. At this stage, South Africa looked like coming back until Mo’unga and Beauden Barrett scored penalties.
