Rugby World Cup: South Africa march into Semi final after beating Japan

Published
In what was a first World Cup quarter-final for the Japanese, neither an entire nation seemingly now besotted by rugby, nor a raucous 50,000 crowd packed into Tokyo Stadium, could carry the hosts to victory.*

“Test match rugby is all about creating opportunities and capitalising, but unfortunately they kept us out and with their set-piece... they played well,” Japan skipper Michael Leitch said. “Credit to them.”
