Bok captain warns team not to get too comfortable
Du Preez, who led the SA to its victory against Scotland, says they still have a lot of work to do.
JOHANNESBURG - Springbok captain Fourie du Preez says the team cannot dwell on their win over Scotland on Saturday.
South Africa ran in three tries at St James' Park, to win their second match of the ongoing Rugby World Cup.
Du Preez, who led the Springboks out on Saturday, for the very first time in his illustrious career, says South Africa still has a lot of work to do.
Tries from Schalk Burger, JP Pietersen and Bryan Habana handed Heyneke Meyer's men a comfortable victory over Scotland.
Despite moving to the top of Pool B, the captain says nothing has changed.
"We are still in the same boat. We still have to beat the United States of America (USA) next week to get on to playing into the play offs."
'LET MY TALENT DO THE TALKING'
Fourie du Preez has described captaining the Springboks as a dream come true.
The veteran scrumhalf led South Africa to a 34-16 win Saturday, putting them at the top of the table.
Du Preez, a very quiet man, says he prefers to let his talent do the talking.
A World Cup winner in 2007, he put in another strong performance as he captained the Boks to an impressive victory.
He says the support he received was incredible.
"I just want to thank all the players that stood by me, unbelievable experience playing under this pressure and then being captain of this team.
South Africa next face the USA on Wednesday in their final Pool B game before shifting their focus to the knock out stages of the competition.
