2 min read

South Africa easy some sequence during a Rugby World Cup by putting divided Namibia 57-3 on Saturday.

The Springboks’ second-string lineup was still a opposite turn opposite a World Cup’s lowest-ranked group in a Pool B diversion that was usually a side story to Japan’s startle win over Ireland hours earlier. That threw a contest on a conduct and put Japan in ecstasy.

South Africa scored 9 tries, 5 in a initial half and 4 in a second. Hooker Bongi Mbonambi and winger Makazole Mapimpi had a span each.

Namibia has never won a Rugby World Cup diversion and a cove between a teams was transparent — and large — notwithstanding them being southern African neighbors. Namibia also had players sin-binned in any half to make it most harder for itself.

Mbonambi got both his tries from rolling mauls. Flanker Francois Louw also got one from a behind of a beat and a Springboks were going during a point-a-minute during one time in a initial half. Winger Makazole Mapimpi and core Lukhanyo Am also crossed in a initial 40.

After a fast start, a South Africans were messy for a 10-minute period, though, before Am scored right during a finish of a half to right that.

Flyhalf Cliven Loubser kicked a first-half chastisement for Namibia’s usually points.

The Springboks way continued after a break. Mapimpi got his second and fullback Warrick Gelant, a aggressive hint for a Springboks from a behind of a field, got a try too.

Regular skipper Siya Kolisi came off a dais to dive over on a right wing with roughly his initial hold and substitute captain Schalk Brits also scored and pennyless out into a large smile.

The diversion done Brits a second-oldest Springbok to play during a World Cup and a second-oldest male to captain a Boks during rugby’s marquee event.

Despite a blowout, it was a smallest winning domain ever for a Springboks over Namibia, that was on a wrong finish of a heaviest detriment in Rugby World Cup history. Namibia mislaid 142-0 to Australia in 2003 for a contest record.
