Genia keen to move on with win

6:09 am on 10 August 2011

The Wallabies halfback Will Genia says Australia can only move on from their heavy 30-14 Tri-Nations loss to New Zealand by performing much better against South Africa this weekend.

In what was billed as a potential World Cup final rehearsal, Australia were completely outplayed by the All Blacks at Eden Park and Genia says it was important to learn from the experience before they play the Springboks in Durban on Sunday.

Genia says the only way to erase the memory of their poor showing is to get back on the field and put in a performance the team are proud of.

Australia beat South Africa 39-20 in Sydney in the first game of this year's Tri-Nations but the return of 15 Springbok players from injury means the Wallabies can expect a far stiffer challenge in Durban.
