Australia gain last-gasp win over South Africa with Rob Horne try – The Guardian

Rob Horne scored a try two minutes from time that Bernard Foley converted to give Australia a 24-23 victory over South Africa in the Rugby Championship at a rain-soaked Subiaco Oval on Saturday.

Israel Folau crossed for his 15th Test try after two minutes but for much of the rest of the evening Australia were chasing the game and it was only when the winger Horne went over in their best move of the match that victory looked likely.

The fly-half Foley, who also kicked four penalties, stepped up to slot the conversion nervelessly and give the coach, Ewen McKenzie, his first win over one of the southern hemisphere superpowers since he took over last year.

South Africa scored a try from Cornal Hendricks and six penalties from the boot of Morne Steyn but will rue the yellow card to the winger Bryan Habana, playing his 100th Test, in the 65th minute that let the home side back into the match.
