With a “pulsating 26-3 victory, the Springboks shattered Japan’s dream to reach the Rugby World Cup semi-finals, setting up a blockbuster clash with Wales next weekend“! Defeating Japan gives the Springboks a chance to play the final World Cup game against New Zealand or England and win the championship. I watched the exciting game with locals at a pub restaurant. It was fun sharing the experience, especially on Sunday, a day when South Africans spend quality time socializing with friends and family. Media shots of team members and video highlights tell it all!

I’m learning about rugby – the comparison with football is obvious. The scrum is fascinating!
