Check out the Rugby Championship highlights as Australia dominated South Africa in Adelaide, earning a 25-17 triumph on Saturday.

Both teams were coming into the game off the back of a defeat, but it was the Wallabies who certainly responded better.

Fast start

They dominated from the off, scoring a well-worked try through Fraser McReight before Noah Lolesio kicked a conversion and a penalty.

The Springboks came back into the contest through Handre Pollard’s penalty and they began to control territory and possession.

However, they could not capitalise and instead it was the Australians who extended their advantage via the excellent Marika Koroibete.

That score rather deflated the visitors and the Wallabies would go on to secure another Rugby Championship victory as McReight completed his brace.

Although the Boks had the final word thanks to Kwagga Smith’s double, it was a chastening day for the defending world champions.
