Bryan Habana was the star of the show for the Springboks, the flying winger scoring two stunning tries, the second of which won the game for the visitors. However, Percy Montgomery also kicked three penalties and a drop goal as South Africa went top of the Tri-Nations table.
It was Australia's fourth successive defeat - their worst run of results in 24 years - and they eventually finished rock bottom of the standings after failing to win a single game in the tournament for the first time.
