New Zealand Beats South Africa 31-17 in Tri-Nations Rugby Match

July 17 (Bloomberg) -- New Zealand beat South Africa 31-17 in the second match of rugby’s Tri-Nations tournament in Wellington.

Ma’a Nonu, Mils Muliaina, Rene Ranger and Israel Dagg scored the tries for the All Blacks in Wellington, with Dan Carter kicking eight points and Piri Weepu adding three. Danie Rossouw and Schalk Burger touched down in reply for South Africa.

“When you play against the best in the world, that’s when you test yourself,” New Zealand captain Richie McCaw said in a televised interview. “It’s good to have the points on the board and we deserve a rest now.”

South Africa now heads to Brisbane to play Australia in the third match of the annual southern hemisphere championship next Saturday.

Weepu took over as kicker after Carter missed three conversions and three penalties. Danie Rossouw was sin binned in the fourth minute, and the Kiwis took advantage, scoring two tries before he came back on the field.
