South Africa tripped up in final of Tusker Safari Sevens

South Africa lost 19-14 to Kenya's Morans team in the final of the Tusker Safari Sevens at RFUEA Grounds in Nairobi after a slow start in the first half saw the visitors concede 19 points against the locals.

The home side, consisting mainly of the Kenyan HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series squad, scored three tries in a six-minute spell, with the SA side falling off tackles they were making earlier in the tournament.


South Africa end Japan's fairy tale run with second half display

The Springboks produced a second half revival to clinch a place in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals after a ‘nervous’ first 40 raised hopes for a packed home crowd of a repeat of the ‘Miracle of Brighton’ which had seen Japan turn the rugby world on its head with victory over South Africa four years ago.

The Springboks stretched away from an edgy two-point halftime lead (5-3) with 21 unanswered points in the second half.


Australia fall to England in Rugby World Cup 2019 Quarter Final in Oita

The Wallabies have fallen to England in their Rugby World Cup Quarter Final clash in Oita on Saturday night. Despite seizing the upper hand in the opening 15 minutes, the Wallabies were unable to contain the northerners who pulled away to a 40-16 victory with a pair of tries in each half.

The Wallabies could produce only three points from their early dominance, before winger Jonny May struck twice for England against the grain to take the wind out of Australia's sails. In a three-minute period midway through the half, May scored his first when the ball was sent through the hands, and moments later was back over in the same corner after regathering a kick from centre Henry Slade.


South Africa crowned Oktoberfest7s champions

Soyizwapi scored a try in the dying seconds of the match - cleverly running closer to the posts - and Dewald Human duly converted to catapult their side onto the top of the podium and a well-deserved win.
