New Zealand beats South Africa 31-17

New Zealand broke South Africa's grip on the Tri-Nations rugby title when it beat the defending tournament and world champions 31-17 on Saturday.
For the second straight week, the All Blacks ran four tries past the Springboks, following the 32-12 win in last weekend's first test at Auckland with a bonus-point victory.
All of New Zealand's tries were scored by backs as it overwhelmed South Africa with a fast-paced and skillful 15-man game. Center Ma'a Nonu, fullback Mils Mulaiana, winger Rene Ranger and his replacement Israel Dagg scored tries to complete a comprehensive All Blacks victory.
Lock Danie Rossouw and flanker Schalk Burger scored tries for the Springboks.
