Kieran Read reflects on epic Test at Ellis Park

WATCH as All Black great Kieran Read reflects on one of the toughest Tests he played against Springboks at Ellis Park.


Former All Blacks No. 8 Read faced the Springboks 22 times between 2009 and 2019 in his 127-Test career, winning 16 of those clashes.

Five of the Tests that Read played in South Africa came at Ellis Park.

However, Read remembers the eight-try thriller in a Rugby Championship decider in Johannesburg in 2013 as the most memorable.

New Zealand eventually secured a 38-27 win over the Springboks.
