New Zealand have made it into the final of the Rugby World Cup for a record fourth time after beating South Africa 20-18 at rain-soaked Twickenham.

It wasn’t all plain sailing for the All Blacks – they trailed by five points at half-time despite a Jerome Kaino’s early try. Four goal-kicks taken by Handre Pollard of the Springboks put the score at 12-7.

After the break, the tension built in the stadium with the defending champions New Zealand racing ahead to take a five-point-lead.

Even the efforts of Pat Lambie who put the South Africans within less than a score of the All Blacks.

New Zealand’s vast experience was too much and they held on until the final whistle to win 20-18.
