6:22 am on 6 September 2009

Australia have stunned South Africa 21-6 to stall the world champions' bid to wrap up rugby's Tri-Nations title.

The Wallabies ended a run of four straight losses to beat the Springboks in Brisbane last night and keep alive the All Blacks hopes of winning the series.

South Africa only needed a bonus point from the match to seal thet title but the Wallabies kept them tryless and scored two of their own, after leading 9-6 at halftime.

The All Blacks play South Africa in Hamilton next weekend and the Wallabies in a fortnight in Wellington.
