The Springboks broke English hearts in Saturday’s 2nd Rugby World Cup semi-final winning by a single point. In a match where England dominated proceedings and leading up to the 77th minute. The Springboks scored a try late and forced a scrum penalty in the dying minutes to clinch the game 16 –15.

England fans have expressed disbelief following the fixture feeling like they were robbed on the night. Despite going into the tournament as outsiders. The English gave their fans hope going into the last minutes of the game after dominating. With Owen Farrell having a blinder of a game. But all hope was dashed as the Boks saw the game out and will look towards the final versus the All Blacks.

To be fair, stand-out performances came from the English with Owen Farrell bossing proceedings. However, South Africa’s hooker Bongi Mbonambi scooped the man of the match award as the South African scrum dominated once more.

The Southern Hemisphere has once again proved its dominance over the North. Time will tell as to the final outcome come Saturday 28 October 2023. Whether South Africa can weather the All Blacks storm is another debate. But more importantly, the sides get to spend another week in the ascendency in the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
