WELLINGTON // New Zealand secured their second successive bonus point win of the 2010 Tri Nations with a 31-17 victory over South Africa today. Ma'a Nonu, Mils Muliaina, Rene Ranger and Israel Dagg scored tries for the All Blacks, while fly-half Daniel Carter, who had a poor goalkicking performance in missing five attempts at goal, slotted two penalties and a conversion. Piri Weepu also added a penalty for the home side.

Danie Rossouw and Schalk Burger scored tries for the world champions, while Morne Steyn added a penalty and two conversions. The Springboks now head to Brisbane where they will meet Australia next week. * Reuters
