Cheslin Kolbe was one of the form players in the game scoring two tries in the match and always looking for work.
Pieter-Steph Du Toit played in his 50th test on Friday for his country and as we got used to from the big man, he gave 120% throughout.
Makazole Mapimpi was the hat-trick hero on Friday. He was solid on defence and good on the highball as well. His speed will be valuable for the Boks in this World Cup.
One things teams will have to adopt to in this World Cup will be the heat and humidity that was cleat to see. Luckily for both teams there was some water breaks in the test to cool down a bit.
One thing that stood out in Fridays test was the great support from the Japanese people to both teams.
Showing respect to South Africa in singing the National Anthem with the Boks and showing respect to the kickers. Maybe the rest of the world can learn something this World Cup form the Japanese people.
The Springboks had a great week in the buildup to this test and have connected with the Japanese people. This is going to be a special World Cup on and off the field.
