JOHANNESBURG - Springbok commander Siya Kolisi hailed his group's discipline in their 26-10 triumph over New Zealand in the Rugby Championship on Saturday.

The title holders overpowered the All Blacks with power all along and Kolisi feels that was the way in to their success.

The Springboks delivered their most prevailing execution against the All Blacks in late memory to record their most memorable triumph against the guests on home soil in eight years.

"I think we had great discipline and we adhered to what we needed to do," Kolisi said.

The outcomes additionally entrusted the New Zealanders to their third continuous loss without precedent for 24 years and their fifth in the last six matches they've played.

The Boks were resolved to establishing an uplifting vibe all along and flew into handles from the main whistle. There was a concern as scrumhalf Faf De Klerk fell off second best in the primary moment when he slammed into winger Caleb Clarke and experienced a dreadful looking injury that managed him out of the remainder of the match.

Kolisi's men kept their strategies regardless of losing an imperative gear-tooth in the group, with substitution number 9, Jaden Hendrikse, ending up a fit delegate in only his fourth Test appearance.

"We adhered to our arrangement and the greatest thing was ensuring we get to the contestable kicks. Assuming they get the ball, we realize they have such countless game breakers in the group, we must be adequately focused to close their chances," the commander said.
