The Springboks secured their place in the playoffs of the 2019 World Rugby Champions after they cruised to an 66-07 win over Canada today.

The Springboks can now start their preparation for their quarterfinal game against the winner of Pool A, that will be played on Sunday 20 October in Tokyo. They are most likely to play against Japan who only needs two bonus points against Samoa on Sunday to win Pool A.

The Springboks lead 47-0 at the break and won 66-07. Unfortunately, most of the players confirmed why they are not the first choice at the World Cup, while some other will still be suspected of paying a bribe to be selected initially.

Scorers:
Springboks: Tries: Damian De Allende, S'bu Nkosi, Cobus Reinach (3), Warrick Gelant, Frans Steyn, Schalk Brits, Damian Willemse, Frans Malherbe. Conversions: Elton Jantjies (8)
Canada: Try: Matt Heaton. Conversion: Peter Nelson.
