South Africa enjoy biggest win in Australia

10:57 am on 9 September 2013

South Africa secured its biggest win on Australian soil and their first in five attempts when they beat the Wallabies 38-12 in the Rugby Championship in Brisbane on Saturday night.

The Springboks scored four tries as they won their first match at Suncorp stadium in eight attempts.

The win puts South Africa, who've also had two wins over Argentina, at the top of the Rugby Championship with three wins ahead of a test against the All Blacks at Eden Park next weekend.

Australia failed to score a try against South Africa for the first time since 2001 as the Springboks bettered their previous record win in Australia, a 12-point victory in 1971.
