Watch the moment Bryan Habana equalled Jonah Lomu's World Cup try record

Habana pounced on a loose ball to score.

BRYAN HABANA’S THREE second half tries were the major talking point from South Africa’s whopping 64-0 win against USA in the Olympic Stadium today.

His 13th, 14th and 15th World Cup scores moved him level with the great Jonah Lomu at the top of the tournament’s hit-list, and it also brought him to 64 test tries in total, five off the record of Japan’s Daisuke Ohata.

Habana has often been known for his searing pace, but it was his quick reactions that helped him match Lomu’s record, pouncing on a ball popping from a maul, to score from close range.

And being the good guy that he is, Habana even took some time out to sign autographs and pose for a few selfies with some lucky fans.
