BRISBANE, Australia -- South Africa broke its long drought in Brisbane and did it in emphatic style, with captain Jean de Villiers starting the celebrations in the 60th minute of a bonus-point 38-12 win over Australia on Saturday. Tiago Mendes Jersey . The Springboks hadnt won in Brisbane since 1971 and came into the match on an eight-match losing streak in the city since their return from the apartheid era ban. They marked the end of the sequence with their biggest ever win on Australian soil. "Its always good to get a win against a (team) like Australia," de Villiers said. "To score four tries against Australia in Brisbane, you cant ask for more than that." The Springboks dominated from the start, with replacement prop Coenie Oosthuizen driving over from a close-range lineout in the sixth minute in an ominous sign of what was to come. The South African forwards dominated the set piece, the back row provided a steady flow of possession and the heavy, physical defence nullified the dangerous Australian backs. After wearing down the Wallabies, a burst of three tries in eight minutes sealed the result. De Villiers started and finished the movement that led to South Africas second try, and that started the flood gates after an hour. Zane Kirchner and Willie Le Roux also crossed out wide to secure the bonus point and give South Africa the lead in the Rugby Championship with three wins from three starts. Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer said the win should silence criticism of the South African style. "Everybody wrote us off and said its impossible to win here," Meyer said. "The whole week there was a mindset that we can win. "I thought our defence was awesome. Our scrums were great, the set pieces ... I believe we won the game firstly in the minds, and second without the ball. "We need to keep our feet on the ground and stay humble. Its a win, and next week its a bigger challenge." The Springboks head to New Zealand on a nine-match winning streak, and with a one-point buffer over the All Blacks at the top of the Rugby Championship. The Australians are languishing at the bottom with three consecutive losses. The Wallabies were disjointed in attack, making only one clean line break in the first half and failing to score a try in a test against South Africa for the first time since 2001. All Australias points came off the boot of Christian Lealiifano with four penalties. The return of Quade Cooper at flyhalf failed to trigger the kind of enterprising attack required to penetrate South Africas swarming defence, and Israel Folaus switch from wing to fullback wasnt the instant success new coach Ewen McKenzie had hoped for. The Australians let themselves down with handling errors and poor discipline, frustrating both McKenzie and captain Will Genia. "The bottom line is that we made too many errors to be able to win," said McKenzie, who has presided over three straight losses since replacing Robbie Deans as Wallabies coach. "I cant keep saying that every week, because in the end you have to find our why we are making so many errors, either we are playing a game thats too complicated and the skill level doesnt match it or we dumb it down a bit and make it simpler, but that would be disappointing." The Wallabies havent looked like winning any of the three tests since McKenzie took charge, and have now lost five of their last six tests. Theyll have to regroup quickly to prepare for next weeks test against Argentina, before two away matches to finish off the championship. "We will have to take a hard look at ourselves, dust ourselves off and be better," Genia said. "We have to get a win. We need to start playing the rugby we know we can play."

In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Stefan Savic Atletico Madrid Jersey . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Blue Jackets wanted their last home game in a month to be memorable. Linemates Ryan Johansen and Boone Jenner each had a goal and an assist in the first period, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 36 saves to lead the Blue Jackets past the Florida Panthers 4-1 on Saturday night. It was Columbus final home game until March 1, due to four road games and the NHL Olympic hiatus. "We definitely wanted to leave Columbus on a good note," Johansen said of the impending West Coast road trip that will lead into the break. "Now were heading out with three really tough games. We wanted to finish this off well, and obviously we did." After Brad Boyes cut Floridas deficit to 2-1 early in the second period, Nick Foligno and Mark Letestu scored for the Blue Jackets. Nathan Horton had two assists in the opening 20 minutes. In their last 13 games, the Blue Jackets won eight in a row, lost three straight and now have won the past two. Down 3-1 going into the third, the Panthers dominated the pace but Bobrovsky made several big stops to maintain the two-goal lead. He improved to 11-2 in his last 13 starts. "Our goalie was very good," coach Todd Richards said. "We were a very opportunistic group." The Blue Jackets considered it a must-win game, because they started the day in fourth place in the Metropolitan Division, one point out of third place and one point out of a wild-card spot. In a crisp first period, the Blue Jackets line of Johansen, Jenner and Horton -- ages 21, 20 and 28, respectively -- played particularly well. After getting a pass from Horton, Johansen carried the puck from the right wing and waited patiently for an opening with Jenner on his wing. As Johansen ran out of room, he wristed a shot that goalie Tim Thomas stopped. But as Thomas, lying on his stomach, tried to gather the puck, he flicked it with his stick under his glove. Jenner crashed the net and jammed the puck into an empty net at 15:33 for his ninth goal. "I blocked it, and then I went to pull it back with my stick, and my glove waas caught on the lip of the net," said Thomas, who had 26 saves as the Panthers lost their third in a row. Luciano Vietto Atletico Madrid Jersey. . "Thats bad luck. We cant afford that. The team needs me to keep us as close as possible. Were a little bit of a fragile team right now. That was terrible." Just 2 1/2 minutes later, Jenner ended up with the puck off a pass from Horton and skated parallel to the goal line to the left wing. Jenner threw a blind, behind-the-back pass to the crease where Johansen was alone for his 22nd. "Boone works so hard and creates so many turnovers," said Horton, a big off-season free-agent signing from Boston who played six years for the Panthers. "And Joey (Johansen), when he has the puck, good things happen." Florida dominated the opening minutes of the second, outshooting the Blue Jackets 8-1. That pressure paid off when Boyes scored his 15th goal. The puck went in off the stick of Columbus defenceman David Savard. After Floridas Nick Bjugstad struck a post with a wrist shot that would have tied the game, the Blue Jackets pulled away. Foligno skated with the puck through the neutral zone, and from near the top of the right circle unloaded a snap shot that appeared to handcuff Thomas and trickled through his pads. He dived with his stick to try to prevent it from going over the line, but was too late. "They got a missed puck that bobbled through," Florida coach Peter Horachek said. "Then they had two that were blindly kind of thrown behind themselves that went to people. Our chances were point blank but we didnt capitalize."
