Springbok ace warns Wallabies

6:16 am on 4 August 2009

Francois Steyn has sounded warning bells for the Wallabies ahead of Sunday's Tri Nations rugby Test, claiming the Springboks weren't close to their best in their latest win over the All Blacks.

Steyn watched five-eighth namesake, Morne score all of South Africa's points in their 31-19 victory in Durban - from eight penalties, a try and a conversion.

He says it was a great result but the Springboks didn't play much rugby, they just kicked the ball, chased and the All Blacks made mistakes.

Steyn says the Springboks shouldn't be satisfied until they regularly rack up scorelines like the 53-8 demolition of the Wallabies in Johannesburg last year .

But the Wallabies assistant coach Jim Williams says from the aspect of exerting pressure and converting that into points, it was a near-perfect 10 from the Springboks.
