Australia took a 14-0 lead through tries from Sam Myers and Ed Jenkins in the Dubai 7s plate final.
The South Africans then hit back to put matters at par through two Kwagga Smith tries, the second with the last play of normal time.
Francois Hougaard dived over the try-line in the corner to the delight of his team-mates to steal the Plate by beating Australia 19-14 in sudden death extra-time of the final.
