The Japanese who were expected to be steam rolled by the Springboks’ produced a heroic performance to beat the tournament favourites in Brighton. The match which will most likely dubbed the game of the of the tournament never failed to excite as fans of both teams along with many neutrals cheered on both sides. The first half was an evenly contested contest as both teams scored tries along with a number of points scored from the boot. The second half was much of the same as both teams traded blows so to speak, and with South Africa leading by 3 points in the final moments Japan came up with a moment of magic to score in the corner in the 84th minute.
The result will surely go down in history as the greatest result in Rugby World Cup history. The result also changes the dynamic of the pool as the springboks’ face a tougher task to reach the quarter finals.
