Springboks progress to Rugby World Cup semis with win over Japan 20 Oct Hosts Japan's winning run at the rugby World Cup came to an end when they slid to a defeat to South Africa in the quarter-finals on Sunday.

The Springboks advanced to a semi-final showdown with Wales, bringing an end to the home team's entertaining run at the first Rugby World Cup staged in Asia.

With a halftime score of it was still anybody's game. As the "epic moments" of Japan's famous World Cup win four years ago in England were replayed on the stadium screen during the break but it seemed only to remind the South Africans of what was at stake in the second half.

Fly-half Handre Pollard landed three penalty goals from the 44th to the 64th minutes to extend the margin to before the South Africans finally opened up. Scrum-half Faf de Klerk scooted over in the 66th after a powerful driving maul from the Springboks had Japan on the back foot, and Makazole Mapimpi added his second try of the match by finishing off a long-range movement in the 70th to put the result beyond doubt.

Captain Michael Leitch and his Japanese squad won millions of converts to the sport for their high-intensity brand of running rugby, but were unable to cross South Africa's line in what was their first ever trip to the knockout stages of the tournament. The two-time champion Springboks are old pros at this end of the tournament, improving to in Rugby World Cup semifinals.

They had to defend for most of the first half, were a man down for 14 minutes and only had 30 per cent of the field position, but held their composure despite a mounting tally of handling errors. Mapimpi gave South Africa a lead, easily beating an attempted tackle from Yu Tamuru on the short side after a big shove from the Springbok scrum and outpacing the cover defence to the left corner.

  • Any reservations on that front were answered long ago. What mattered for the 45, crowd was to see in the flesh the ability of the Brave Blossoms not just to win on such a high-profile stage but to play with the sort of conviction and flair that would trouble the Big Boys, the top eight brotherhood of the knockout stages.

  • Ugly tackle from 'The Beast' Sad finish to a brilliant tournament The World Cup semi-finals have been finalised after Japan's gritty World Cup campaign came to an end at the hands of a ruthless South African side.

But Japan absorbed the early pressure from a much bigger Springboks pack and started to take control when veteran South Africa prop Tendai Mtawarira was yellow-carded in the 10th minute for a tip-tackle. He immediately put his hands up to acknowledge the mistake, but left his team with 14 men for the next 10 minutes and Japan attacked relentlessly - even taking a scrum against the head.

That led to Japan's points, from a calmly taken penalty goal by Tamura in the 20th minute. Japan had done most of the running in the first half and went close after a Kenki Fukuoka surge on the left wing, but wasn't able to turn almost 70 per cent of possession and territory into a try.

That hurt after the break.

Eventually the battering took a toll on the Japan side and possession and territory stats ended about even. The Japan team did a lap of Tokyo Stadium, where die-hard fans stayed long after full-time to celebrate their team.
