'What the hell': All Blacks stunned

One week after getting beaten by Australia, South Africa sprung an ambush on the All Blacks at Westpac Stadium in Wellington to be within touching distance of snapping a losing streak in New Zealand that stretches back to 2009.
South Africa had won just one of their past 12 tests agains New Zealand and were considered no-hope against the world champions on Saturday night.
Instead, they raced out to a 24-17 half time lead to get New Zealand nervous.
The nerves had turned into pure terror for the Kiwi camp when the visitors went ahead 36-24 with a try to winger Aphiwe Dyantyi, who was able to cut back inside the covering All Blacks defence.
The All Blacks struck back to cut the margin back to a converted try when forward Codie Taylor collapsed over the line after his pack had pushed past the Springboks defence in a punishing maul.
It left the Springboks ahead 36-29 after 65 minutes.
The incredible match was the talk of the sporting world.
What on earth is going on?! All Blacks 14 points down and facing a mighty challengeto win this one! #NZLvSA

Still waiting for that ten minute period where the @AllBlacks go 'bang!' and pile on the tries. Stand by @Springboks fans! #NZLVRSA #RugbyChampionship
