Result: New Zealand beat 14-man South Africa

New Zealand top the standings in the Rugby Championship after beating South Africa 29-15 this morning.

New Zealand have beaten South Africa 29-15 to move clear at the top of the Rugby Championship standings.

The All Blacks claimed an early lead through a Kieran Read try, before a Brodie Retallick scored his first international try to extend the advantage.

Bismarck du Plessis missed 10 minutes of the first half after picking up a yellow card for an illegal tackle on Dan Carter, but he was able to get his team back into the game before half time.

Du Plessis was on the charge again in the second half, but was dismissed for elbowing Liam Messam in the face.

Read and Sam Cane both added further tries for the New Zealanders, but late yellow cards for Read and Ma'a Nonu meant they finished the game with 13 players.
