Bryan Habana scored a second half hat-trick to help the Springboks move into the quarterfinal round with energy at their side.

Habana scored in the span of 19-second half minutes to cap South Africa’s 64-0 victory over the Eagles.

South Africa only led 14-0 before the interval, but a colossal offensive run allowed them to score 50 more in the second period. USA was the first team to fail to score at a Rugby World Cup match.  

The Americans started with hopes of another upset against South Africa, the first being Japan. The chances of this happening again quickly diminished as the Springboks opened the match with a quick 7-0 score.
