Habana praises 50-Test cap Lambie

London - Springbok wing Bryan Habana has praised team-mate Patrick Lambie on winning his 50th Test cap in the Green and Gold.

Lambie came on in the 64th minute of Friday's Bronze medal final against Argentina to help his side to a 24-13 victory.

Writing on Twitter after the match, Habana said: From wishing him well on his first Bok call up to seeing him get his 50th test cap #tooproud #whataguy

Habana, who has played 117 Tests for South Africa, failed to score against the Pumas so will in all likelihood end his World Cup career tied atop the try-scorers charts - on 15 tries - with All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu.

Habana was critical of his own play on Friday at The Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, writing: Not my greatest outing tonight but at least not for a lack of trying... Great to end the journey on a winning note #ProudlySouthAfrican
