    Habana eyes unique record

    2012-07-27 07:45
    Cape Town - Stormers wing Bryan Habana can set an interesting record if he scores a try against the Sharks in their Super Rugby semi-final at Newlands on Saturday.

    He will then become the top try scorer in the history of Super Rugby playoff games.

    Habana, who has scored three tries in semi-finals and four in finals, is currently on seven tries in knock-out matches, the same as former Brumbies speedster Joe Roff.

    He joined the Stormers in 2010 before representing the Bulls in two victorious campaigns in 2007 and 2009.

    The clash at Newlands kicks off at 17:05 on Saturday. Habana will be in an eagerly awaited duel with fellow Springbok JP Pietersen, who's had a stellar season for the Durban side.
