Australia looked a shadow of the side that defeated the Springboks so convincingly in Durban last weekend and were never in the match once South Africa had scored three tries in the opening 25 minutes.
Amazingly, though, they could still win the Tri-Nations if they beat New Zealand in Brisbane in two weeks, although, on this performance, it looks highly unlikely.
South Africa ran in eight tries, four in each half, as the world champions came to life at the end of an arduous Tri-Nations campaign.
NVDL: Was a great game to watch. Pity Nokwe got injured, and pity the Boks could only come up with this level of carnage at the end of their campaign. But a superb performance, and an indication that this team are the world champs after all.
