Habana record as Boks run riot

BRYAN Habana scored his 39th Test try as world champions South Africa inflicted the biggest defeat of the World Cup so far on their neighbours Namibia, with an 87-0 Pool D hammering today.

Winger Habana broke his 15-month test drought in the 22nd minute of the first half to finally move ahead of Joost van der Westhuizen as South Africa's all-time most prolific try scorer.

Although less convincing than their 49-3 victory over Fiji in their second pool game, 12 tries, all converted, saw the Springboks all but secure a place in the knockout stage before their final group game against Samoa.
