S Africa tops
Pool B in Rugby
...Habana ties Lomu's mark
LONDON---Bryan Habana equalled Jonah Lomu s
career record of 15 Rugby World Cup tries when he
crossed for a hat trick to help South Africa to a 64-
0 win over the United States that secured top spot
in Pool B yesterday.
The South Africans scored 10 tries in an emphatic
conclusion to the pool stage that started with their
shocking loss to Japan.
The Springboks needed a four-try bonus-point
win to top the pool, and were halfway there with
two tries and a 14-0 lead at the break.
Habana swooped on a perfectly placed grubber
kick from scrumhalf and skipper Fourie du Preez 62
seconds after the interval, and added two more,
untouched, in the 59th and 61st minutes to take his
career tally to 15 and equal the tournament record
mark set by Lomu, the All Blacks great.
Habana s first try made the score 21-0, and when
hooker Bismarck du Plessis burrowed over from a
close-range ruck six minutes later, the match was all
Back-rower Schalk Burger, who equaled John Smit s
South Africa record of 17 Rugby World Cup matches
when he started against the Americans, promptly
left the field to avoid injury ahead of the quarter-
He missed a procession of tries.
Blindside flanker Francois Louw also scored twice,
outside center Jesse Kriel strolled through some tiring
defense in the middle, and winger Lwazi Mvovo fin-
ished off a long-range counter-attacking try deep in
injury time to inflate the margin --- making it the
biggest win at this tournament.
The South Africans had won all three previous
matches against the Eagles, including a 65-14 win
in 2007 en route to the title.
They were intent on attacking and spreading the
ball wide in the first half, and put down a series of
chances against a gritty defensive effort from a US
lineup missing some key front-line players who were
being saved for the last pool game against Japan on
Japan is still in contention for a quarterfinal spot
for the first time and is vying for second spot in the
group with Scotland, which closes against Samoa.
The first half was tough, with South Africa dom-
inating possession and field position but pushing too
Inside center Damian de Allende opened the scoring
in the seventh minute, but the South Africans didn t
score again for 20 minutes, when a penalty try resulted
from the big Springbok pack s dominant scrum.
Other chances went begging in the slippery con-
ditions caused by persistent earlier rain, with outside
center Jesse Kriel held up over the tryline in the 24th,
and lock Eben Etzebeth losing control of the ball over
the line in the leadup to the penalty try.
The Americans were competitive despite a lack of
ball in the first half and missed two shots at goal,
including Folau Niua s attempt from almost halfway
in the third minute, and scrumhalf Niku Kruger s
attempt from 30 meters that cluttered into the left
upright in the 14th.
After a short turnaround following the win over
Scotland on Saturday, the Springboks get a long break
until the quarterfinals, where they ll meet the loser
of Saturday s Pool A match between Australia and
In Exeter, captain Mamuka Gorgodze and flyhalf
Lasha Malaguradze scored second-half tries as Georgia
held on to beat Namibia in and have a slot in the
2019 tournament within their grasp.
Georgia can automatically qualify for the first time
for 2019 by finishing third in Pool C, and will do so
as long as New Zealand beats Tonga tomorrow. (AP)
