South Africa...37 ..Fiji..20


Ek het natuurlik die wedstryd weer op TV gekyk, maar ai, die spanning!! Hierdie Fijiane is blokke van manne, hulle eet seker meer as net mieliepap daar anderkant! My senuwees was natuurlik gedaan en toe dit nou sommer 20-20 is, toe breek my moed en met 23-20 het ek omtrent nie verder gekyk nie, ek wou nie sien hoe Suid-Afrika begrawe word nie, dit sal darem te erg wees. Maar later weer gekyk....kan ook nie wegbly nie, moet darem my land ondersteun! Sjoe! Dit was darem hittette...ek is net vrek bly ons is deur....ek glo die paadjie nou is sommer maklik, maar Suid-Afrika moet net nie nou op hul loure gaan sit en dink...hulle kan gerus wees nie...hierdie Franse en Engelse is bietjie skuilie, ek dink hulle steek iets weg....

80 mins: TRY South Africa 37-20 FijiAfter a series of 5m scrums and forward drives, South Africa end the match with a try from fly-half Butch James, as he comes back on the angle against an exhausted Fiji defence.
Percy Montgomery kicks the conversion, and South Africa get a 17-point win which they barely deserve.
The final whistle goes and South Africa are through to the last four to face either Scotland or Argentina.

77 mins: There's a bad-tempered end to this classic encounter with Fourie du Preez and Schalk Burger both losing their rag as South Africa try to score a clinching try.
South Africa keep on taking 5m scrum after 5m scrum, and it has effectively ended the game.
73 mins: Terrible bad luck for Fiji as flanker Akapusi Qera gets a fingertip to Butch James's attempted drop-goal as he charges it down.
James's effort is always going wide of the posts and long, but Qera's touch means South Africa get a totally undeserved 5m scrum.
Schalk Burger bursts off the back of it, but knocks on in the act of scoring to give Fiji a glimmer of hope.
71 mins: Fiji are still attacking, but a knock-on from Seru Rabeni allows South Africa to clear through Butch James's booming touchfinder.
69 mins: TRY South Africa 30-20 FijiSouth Africa's forwards power their way through for a hard-earned try which should, in theory, win them the match. We've said that before though, haven't we?
A great kick from Fourie du Preez puts Fiji in trouble in their own 22, and their line-out is penalised for not straight.
South Africa take full advantage as just a few phases later, Juan Smith drives over for a desperately needed try.
Percy Montgomery kicks the converison, and South Africa are more than a converted try clear.
67 mins: This is yet another classic quarter-final. Fiji burst up the right flank with a Lomo-esque surge from Vilimoni Delasau, before the ball goes out to the other flank.
A debateable forward pass, unnoticed by the officials, makes its way to Ifereimi Rawaqa but a sublime tackle form JP Pietersen stops the lcok from touching down. One of the best tackles I have ever seen, and you cannot take your eyes off this for a second.
