As the Springboks managed to hold off the Welsh in this weekends win with a too-close-for-comfort 4 point margin (23 – 19), they booked a spot in the semi-finals this weekend Saturday 24 October at Twickenham against the formidable Kiwi’s. The All Blacks managed to annihilate a lackluster French team by 62 points to 13. By all accounts, this weekend’s game could be seen as a final between these two arch-rivals with New Zealand having the upper hand in wins over the Boks to date – 52 to 35.
The Puma’s sent the Irish packing with a win that stunned most pundits. Their 43 – 20 win secured them a semi-final against the Ozzies on Sunday 25th of October again at Twickenham. In a game that could have gone either way, the Australians scored a late penalty that pushed them one point clear of the Scots (35 – 34) in an agonising loss in the dying minutes of the full 80 minutes.
