Cape Town - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer has praised Bryan Habana after the veteran wing scored his 50th try for South Africa against Samoa at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.

As it happened: SA v Samoa

All-time leading Test try-scorers

“Bryan always delivers the goods for me; I am very proud of him. He said before the game he wanted to score three tries, and although he fell short with two, it was a fantastic effort,” Meyer said.
Commenting on the 56-23 victory, Meyer said: “We asked the forwards for a big performance and they delivered. We played typical Springbok rugby. We did the basics right and the team was strong physically, especially Willem (Alberts) and Francois (Louw), so am happy with the performance. But that said there is room for improvement, so it is important that we keep our feet on the ground.”
