The Wallabies have once again come up empty-handed in South Africa after they left too many points out on the park in an 18-10 loss to the Springboks on Saturday (Sunday AEST).

All 18 of South Africa's points came from penalties and drop goals, while for the Wallabies, winger Reece Hodge lost his radar, missing all three attempts at goal from long range, which proved to be costly.

The Wallabies had more possession (55 per cent) and territory (60 per cent), but just couldn't penetrate a robust Springboks line when it mattered.

The score remained at 12-10 from half-time until the 76th minute when five-eighth Morne Steyn kicked his fourth penalty from five attempts before his drop goal in the last minute of regular time sunk the Wallabies and continued their winless record at Loftus Versfeld and a five-year drought on South African soil.
