This is why we love rugby. Japan didn’t just hang in there, they set the tempo with their rapid passing and strong defence. The Springboks looked like they had won it when Strauss scored, but Japan wouldn’t die. Japan played their game, South Africa were simply not able to deal with their pace. Rejecting a penalty, which would draw the game, they finally broke through well beyond the 80th minute. Passion makes the game great, and that was pure passion.
