    Oh ffs it’s just gonna be Wales kicking away possession and SA failing on all but one counter attack. Kolbe scores under the post and pollard misses the conversion for a 5-0 win.

    take the under everyone.

    Well we've loved watching Japan. However it was inevitable, despite the optimism going into the match.

    South Africa have done the job, but definitely room for improvement. Next week could well be a game of who makes the least mistakes between S.A and Wales.

    Four tries now missed by SA.

    Their finishing is really bad.

    Japan deserve at least a try for their efforts throughout the tournament.

    They've been poor in a number of ways, but their defence has been excellent.

    You can't criticise the Boks for using the tactics that will get them into the semi. They will have to try something a bit more varied against Wales, but they are capable of that. If JD2 doesn't make it and Biggar starts they can probably beat Wales with 15-18 points, which they are more than capable of.

    A shame that Japan couldn't avoid the packs of England or the Boks in the QFs, as they might have had a chance to show some attacking play.

    How the heck is Faf man of the match over any forward or Mapimpi?

    Yeah the two fly half's will be kicking the ball back to each other saying "it's our defensive set now!"

    Can I just suggest, those not supporting either Wales or SA next week, not to watch the game.
    I fear for the meltdowns to occur from neutrals :p

    Hard lines Japan.

    And I have a sneaky feeling England are gonna turn over NZ.

    We left so many points on the park. Japan have been dominated the entire second half. They were in it in the first 40, but we killed them in the 2nd half. No two ways about it.

    Boks have literally ground down Japan both physically and mentally. Sad to see the Brave Blossoms have nothing left in the tank in the last 20 mins.

    I reckon the boks reserve front row is better than the starting front row.

    Boks almost reminded me of England in the pools
    Pretty dominant, never in danger, but left a ton of tries out there
