Lomu, the giant New Zealand wing, scored 15 tries when he starred for the All Blacks at the 1995 and 1999 editions of rugby's showpiece event, a feat now matched by Habana after his hat-trick against the USA at Olympic Park on Wednesday.

Habana entered the 2015 Rugby World Cup with 10 tries and quickly matched Lomu at the top of the try-scoring charts after tries against Samoa, Scotland and then three tries as South Africa romped to a 64-0 win over the USA.
