Fo­ley earns draw for bat­tling Aus­tralia

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - RUGBY UNION -

RUGBY UNION: South Africa main­tained their un­beaten start to the Rugby Cham­pi­onship but Bernard Fo­ley’s penalty 10 min­utes from time se­cured an en­ter­tain­ing 23-23 draw for Aus­tralia in Perth.

The Spring­boks had beaten Ar­gentina home and away and seemed set for a third suc­ces­sive win af­ter bounc­ing back from 20-10 down to lead by three points, only for Fo­ley to split the posts af­ter Will Ge­nia had been taken out at the base of a ruck.

South African fly-half El­ton Jan­tjies saw a late drop goal charged down as the sides set­tled for a draw.
