It was physical upfront, but in the end the muscle of a veteran Springbok forward pack was too big a hurdle for their opponents, Manu Samoa, to climb.
Once the forwards provided clean ball for the backs, and after up and coming Frans Steyn came on, things opened up in mid-field for the backs. Centre Jaque Fourie crossed once, Percy Montgomery scored twice, while Bryan Habana touched down four times.
The speedster Habana once again showed that he's once of the best finishers in the game. Not a bad start to the World Cup for him.
