The Springboks had led 14-0 at halftime, with a penalty try and center Damien de Allende's first international five-pointer, but Habana's first soon after the interval (pictured) opened the floodgates at London's Olympic Park.

The 32-year-old could have surpassed Jonah Lomu's record of 15 overall in the 68th minute, but spilled the ball after he was over the American tryline.
