Habana gets record as South Africa win

South Africa scored twelve tries against Namibia, they will now top the group and probably play Australia in the quarter finals.

The spring box lead 31-0 at half time and had wrapped up a bonus point at North Harbour Stadium. Winger Bryan Habana broke the Springboks’ all-time try-scoring record with Gio Aplon and Jaque Fourie and a penalty try making up the four tries in the first half.

They scored another eight tries in the second half to win 87-0.

Willem Alberts won the man of match.
