Nieu Zeeland Poverty Bay match 1956=..
The Poverty Bay match was a match of two halves and although the Springboks won comfortably in the end -scoring 6 tries- they led only 3-0 at half time thanks to a clever worked try scored by Dawie Ackermann in the 37th minute.
Picture showing Dawie Ackermann scoring one of his two tries against Poverty Bay combined. Ackermann scored the Springboks only try in the first half after a double scissors movement between Lochner and Ulyate and then Ulyate and Nel which threw the home teams backs into confusion and created the opening for Ackermann to slip through dot down behind the posts
