    Recap

    It was always going to be difficult for Canada who did came back at the Springboks in the second half disrupting their flow but at the end 10 tries to 1 tells the story.

    Cobus Reinach had a brilliant game while he has been on scoring a hat-trick of tries in the first half that took the game away from Canada within 25 minutes.

    The Springboks forwards were just too good with RG Snyman leading the pack with powerful runs and offloads. He deservedly got the man of the match award.

    Now it is playoffs left for the Springboks as they wait to see who they will face in the quarter finals.

    The Springboks dominated the game from the start as we expected and quickly ran in three tries within 11 minutes with first Damian de Allende, S”busiso Nkosi and Cobus Reinach.

    The first two tries showed off their skills and handling with the ball going from hand-to-hand to send both De Allende and Nkosi over.

    Cobus try came from some great play from the nine when he got the break and a chip over the last defender gave him the try to take the lead to 19-0 after 11 minutes.

    Reinach was at the end of two more tries to complete his hat-tick within 23 minutes and took the lead to 33-0.

    His second try was something brilliant from the scrumhalf.

    His hat-trick try came from attacking kick inside the Springboks twenty two.

    The Springboks got their sixth try when Warrick Gelant was at the end of a good scrum and good hands out wide to take the lead to 40-0.

    Canada got some field position but was then given a red card for a shoulder charge in the ruck by Josh Larsen. The decision was correct but one do feel that the game was just becoming a cricket score from there on end.

    The Springboks had another try in them and Frans Steyn was at the end of it just before halftime to make the score 47-0 at the break.

    Canada started the second half better and got over the line of the Springboks for their first try of the match after some good pressure being put on the Boks.

    The Springboks hit back with Schalk Brits scoring with some beautiful stepping on his way to the line. This gave the Springboks a 54-7 lead after 60 minutes.

    Try number nine was scored by Damien Willemse when the Springboks had a great scrum five out and simple passing of the ball down the line to Willemse to score his first World Cup try.

    Frans Malherbe was the next Springbok over the line when Springboks worked their way again to the Canadians line and Malherbe used his power to get over.

    This gave the Springboks 66-7 after 74 minutes.

    The game got a bit scrappy at the end and the game ended with the Springbok taking the bonus point win against Canada.

        2. What worries me is that in spite of the opposition being the softest possible, we still aren’t seeing Kolisi doing anything
