Wing Kurt-Lee Arendse crossed over for the hosts first try, easily converted by Pollard.
The Boks stuck to their kick-heavy, forward-dominated blueprint and executed it to perfection.
Playing in his 50th test Malcolm Marx and his forwards dominated the breakdowns and the line outs not giving Cane and his team any room to breathe.

South Africa went into the sheds at half time leading 10-3 to New Zealand thanks to a Jordie Barrett penalty.
The second half seemed to be all Handre Pollard as he booted in penalties and a drop goal.
Kurt-Lee Arendse was red carded in the 73rd minute for taking out Beauden Barrett in the air.

Alarm bells are now ringing louder in the All Blacks camp with Ian Foster and his team heading to Ellis Park next week.
