We are in the Final

The Boks overpowered Argentina 37-13. We led 24-6 at halftime but it was only late in the second half that we came back into the game and made sure there were no surprises.

Two tries in the last 10 minutes of the first half had seemingly put South Africa in control but the Pumas scored just four minutes after restart when Manuel Contepomi crashed over.

The boks scored three first half tries, to halfback Fourie Du Preez, Habana and Danie Roussow.
Du Preeze scored in the seventh minute, intercepting an attacking pass.

Two of these tries came from mistakes from the pumas allowing Habana and Roussow to score, the Pumas have had an amazing world cup tournament but did seem to choke or lose their composure today.

The Argies scored early in the second half going to 24-13 and pressured the bookies favourite on a number of occasions, threatening to get even closer.

However, two Percy Montgomery penalties who the argies were supposed to pressure and disrupt and an classic intercept try to winger Bryan Habana - South Africa's second of the match did the dirty on the Pumas.
