We Witnessed A Rugby Miracle

For any fan of rugby, today’s action in the World Cup was truly memorable. For decades to come, we might ask each other: “Where were you when Japan beat the mighty South African Springboks?”

Japan rugby

South Africa came into the tournament as co-favourites with New Zealand; Japan has only ever won one World Cup game, and that was twenty-odd years ago.  You would never have known that today.

Every time that Japan scored, the Springboks struck back; but time and time again, the Japanese kept scoring until, with the final play of the game they pushed themselves over the try line to win by 35-32.  They never gave up and deserved to win.

It was a marvelous fast-paced and exciting game.
