Fast and Furious Springbok Safari

The All Blacks thrashed South Africa 52 – 16 in the Tri-Nations opener in the high velt fortress of Loftus Versfeld. It was South Africa’s worst home defeat with the ABs producing a fine display of getting-it-wide running rugby based around a sturdy forward platform. In a complete performance they ran in seven tries to South Africa’s one, including a brace each to wings Doug Howlett (above) and Joe Rocokoko.
