This is how I descibe this try in the text (See 1965 tour - first test:

The second try started when Conway picked up a ball thrown to the back of the lineout and charged for the line. It looked as if he scored when he was forced to the ground by the defenders on the Springboks goal line. The referee, however, decided he fell short and from the ensuing scrum, the All Blacks attempt to repeat the move which produced the earlier try. This time de Villiers saw it coming and he tackled Willimant when he joined the backline; the ball spilled forward in the tackle. Tremain (No. 7) was first to gather the ball and plunged over the Springboks try line near the right hand corner. Despite the fact that Willament clearly knocked the ball forward and that Tremain was in an offside position when he played the ball the try was awarded by referee Pat Murphy. Willament was unsuccessful with the conversion and the All Blacks went into halftime with a slender 6-0 lead.
