Cheslin Kolbe from South Africa loses the ball when French Arthur Iturria resolves him when he is going to win a win at the Springbok team in Paris.
South Africa defeated France with the final jump from the maul to the final game.
Replacement hook Mbongeni Mbonami hit the 85th minute after Springboks tried to dodge but he was dismissed because referee Nigel Owens played a penalty on Saturday (Sunday NZ) in Paris.
France led 16-9 in the semifinals after three fines from Baptiste Serin, dropped the goal on Camilla Lopez and tried to overcome Guilhe Guirado, who avoided the recruitment of his South African counterpart Malcolm Marx.
41 minutes into the match, Mathieu Bastareaud came close to putting the visiting team home.
* Ref is right: Hansen
* On the side! The media in Britain exploded
Cullen: TMO calls the border
* All blacks are coming out of England
But the Springboks returned to a dispute with an attempt on Sibusiso Nkosi and three Handre Pollard's punishments.
Serin's shoes meant that France still had four points in the lead, but their bad discipline proved costly when they confessed with punishment and found themselves on average five meters off the line.
In the end, he said the pressure.
