South Africa 46-6 Samoa

South Africa claimed their first win of the Rugby World Cup in a convincing manner over Samoa in Pool B. As expected, it was a physical game with some big hits. However, the South Africans generally seemed to get the better of the exchanges and their forwards were able to establish a good platform, especially with mauls, which Samoa seemed to have little answer to. South Africa were able to turn this into a bonus point victory and move top of the Pool.

South Africa’s campaign is now up and running after last week’s shock loss to Japan and they will surely still qualify. However, the Pool is shaping up as the most interesting at the moment and all four other teams will still believe that they can qualify for the quarter finals, meaning that there should be some great games in the coming weeks.
