South Africa trash USA 64-0

The winger scored three times in 21 second-half minutes to draw level with Lomu's mark of 15 World Cup tries.

The Springboks ran in eight second-half tries in all to earn a bonus-point win at the Olympic Stadium.

South Africa top Pool B and will now play the loser of Saturday's Pool A decider between Australia and Wales.

A tale of two halves

A mixture of South Africa's ill-discipline and poor finishing kept the score down in the first half, while USA only made it into the Boks' 22 in the last minute of the half, despite enjoying plenty of possession.

Manu make four changes for Boks clash

Stanley made his test debut only in November, but head coach Stephen Betham said the 25-year-old directed the team well during the Pacific Nations Cup and has proven himself more than capable of stepping up to the first five-eight duties.

He also slotted a crucial penalty in their victory over the United States last weekend, after Pisi had struggled with the boot.

The other changes are in the forwards, with hooker Motu Matu'u and prop Census Johnston starting in place of Ole Avei and Anthony Perenise.

Springboks make eight changes to face Samoa

Adriaan Strauss, who will win his 50th cap, is the starting hooker, while Duane Vermeulen will make his first Test appearance of the year in the No 8 jersey as coach Heyneke Meyer reacted swiftly to the shock of defeat against Japan.

Willie le Roux, JP Pietersen and Damian De Allende return in the backline – with skipper Jean de Villiers shifting to outside centre – while there are new halfbacks in Handré Pollard and Fourie du Preez.

Japan beats South Africa in biggest-ever upset

Japan players and fans shed tears of joy at the end of a thrilling encounter that ebbed and flowed, but victory was fully deserved after a tenacious performance by the underdogs at the Brighton Community Stadium on Sunday morning.

South Africa had sounded a note of caution ahead of the game, but few, if any, would have predicted defeat at the hands of an opponent that had previously won only once in 24 World Cup outings.
