Newbies shine for Boks

Springboks Willie le Roux, JJ Engelbrecht and Jano Vermaak all made an impact in the Boks 44-10 win against Italy.

The Boks led 20-nil after 20 minutes, took the foot off the pedal for the next 40 minutes and ended with a flurry of three tries in the last 10 minutes.

Veteran Bryan Habana scored the individual try of the day while hooker Adriaan Strauss was the pick of the Bok pack.

Morne Steyn was accurate with his goalkicking and his decision making.

South Africa – Tries: Adriaan Strauss, JJ Engelbrecht, Bryan Habana, Jean de Villiers and Bjorn Basson. Conversions: Morné Steyn (4), Pat Lambie. Penalties: Steyn (3).
Italy – Try: Alberto Sgarbi. Conversion: Alberto di Bernardo. Penalty: Di Bernardo.
