Rugby WC: Australia – New Zealand in the semis

Australia scored a penalty nine minutes from time as they snuck a 11-9 win over defending champions South Africa to book a World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. In a tight match in Wellington, Australia withstood a huge Springbok onslaught to snatch the win against the run of play and set up a last-four clash against the All Blacks, who overcame Argentina 33-10 in the last quarter-final. The All Blacks took until the 67th minute to eventually cross the try-line but scrum-half Piri Weepu kept the scoreboard ticking over for the hosts with seven penalties.
