South Africans were finally treated to a Springbok win in today’s Castle Lager Rugby Championship clash against Australia. The final score was 24-8 to the Boks, with Paarl-born Canan Moodie (19) stealing Bok fans’ hearts, and the show, with an epic debut try.
A historic win, the Springboks beat the Wallabies in Australia for the first time since 2013, ending a nine-year wait.
It was a deserved victory for the Boks, who showed much more intensity from the start of the Test and never really took a step backwards after crossing for the first try in the opening ten minutes.
Undoubtedly, the standout moment came when Moodie crossed for his debut try and was swamped by his teammates in celebration. The second-youngest Springbok debutant was solid as a rock, making 35 metres from four carries and beating one defender.
Well done Bokke!
