24 July 1976 - South Africa 16 / All Blacks 7 Here is Gerald Bosch being led off by the Springboks team doctor Jack Sweidan –to be replaced by De Wet Ras- 10 minutes before the end. The Springboks gambled heavily with Bosch in this test and he could not do himself justice missing with 5 normally easy penalties for him and with the conversion of Krantz’s try –which hit the upright- and two drop goal attempts. Those long kicks deep to the corners driving the opposition back on their heels were…
