Springboks denied shot at redemption

TRI-NATIONS South Africa were on track for a backs-to-the-wall victory when Australia's Mat Rogers yanked the carpet out from under their feet


But the Springboks hit the front again when Montgomery was pushed over the tryline by winger Bryan Habana for a try.

South Africa led 18-13 with 11 minutes left as Larkham was taken off and replaced by Rogers.

Then came Australia's winning try with Cordingley scooping the ball off the ground to Waugh, who broke free and sent Rogers racing to the try-line.
