Wallabies go down in Cape Town again

THE Wallabies are set to finish third in the 2015 Rugby Championship after they wilted in the final 10 minutes to lose 28-10 to South Africa in Cape Town.

After Australia led at half-time, three tries and a drop goal inside the final 10 minutes by South Africa proved too much for the visitors.

Adam Ashley-Cooper scored the Wallabies' only try.

Australia's final game is against the Pumas in Argentina on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, New Zealand sealed its third successive title with a 34-13 victory over Argentina in La Plata.

The All Blacks earned a bonus point by scoring four tries, while stand-in fly-half Beauden Barrett kicked 14 points.
