Nkosi grabs the first box kick out of the air, DA finds a touch on the red 22.
Silky skills from Allende. Great line kick. Then ends movement to score. Snyman did well.
Steyn beats his first tackle on the wing. Snyman through a massive gap midfield, two meters short.
Easy run in for DA off the Jantjies pass, 7 -0 Boks.
Great opportunity for Reinach.
Steyn kicks deep, red return not out. Boks run it wide. Plenty of half gaps in the red defense.
Nice hands Kwagga who sends Nkosi in.
Boks lead 12 - 9 as JW wonders if Boks can pull off a win.
Nkosi now scores off a nice Kwagga offload.
Two easy scores, looks like it might be a hard day at the office for the Can Ca ns.
Never mind Beeno's fake news, the score is 12-0, not 12-9.
RG continuing to impress.
Fake news nothing burger by Beeno of all people.
Wow. Reinach with the gas!!
Fuck me Reinach - awesome
There is the brilliance of Reinach. Note the pace.
Jantjes has done very little in his appearances and Reinach could make the match 23 in quarterfinals.
Boks lead 19-0
Reinach with a brilliant individual effort, break from the ruck, kick ahead, gather, score.
Boks have pacy pack.
Willemse pushes the offload, goes forward.
Boks destroy Canada scrum.
Red scrum struggling just a little bit.
For a lot of these guys this will be their last game at the WC and they're absolutely thrashing it.
Will be interesting to see if they can maintain the pace through the 2nd half.
Reinach snipes and scores.
Boks have an attacking lineout after a scrum penalty.
Raainag is on the money.
Another big bust from Snyman and Reinach is over from the ruck.
Brilliant cross kick by Jantjes gathered by Gelant and Reinach finishes off for hatrick.
Great support running from Reinach and he's in for what must be the fastest WC hat-trick??
I think Reinach should declare his innings as closed.
LOL, another try for Reinach. Kick pass from inside the 22 Jantjies to Gelant, to DA to Reinach.
They're scoring faster than your feed Pakie
Reinach going for six and out Blikkies
Gelant is slooow though.
Haha Xavi, yes they are.
CC loving every minute!
You could play Reinach on the wing he is that fast.
Expect Willemse to go on here.
Canada defense settling a bit now.
Reinachs hat-trick confirmed as fastest at a WC.
Great finish Gelant.
Boks lead 40-0
Gelant jinxes his way over. Little dummy run from DA, pass wide, ju st too easy.
Williamse and Gelant are ball players.
They backs feel instantly more dangerous with this configuration.
Oupa Schalk getting cramps, forgot to take his salt pills this morning.
Jantjes having a good game.
Nice little rumble from Canada. Lineout deep.
"They backs feel instantly more dangerous with this configuration."
Vd Merwe just couldn't gather the cross kick otherwise Canada was in.
Brits is a very skilful player Pakster
That was a poor tackle attempt from Gelant, on par with Le Roux.
I know Beeno, my Oupa comments are tongue in cheek.
I hope this isn't a red card.
Trouble for Canada, shoulder onto the neck at the ruck.
first century of the RWC ?
Yes it looks like a red. Very deliberate,
Pity but correct decision.
Letter of the law but absolutely ruins the game now.
Now Canada are a man down.
Bad to worse.
Lamentable, but again, the players know the law. Stay away from the neck/head .
Gelant doing what he can to even the chances for the Cannucks.
Big knock from Gelant after a nice break by Schalk.
Red 14 asleep as his 15 tries a sharp play.
Kwagga fumbles on the line.
Everybody trying to get their name on the score sheet messing up a promising phase of play.
Steyn releases Nkosi, 1m short, Kwagga knocks at the breakdown.
Lol Steyn with the intercept and score
The invisible Steyn intercepts and scores.
Man forgot he was on the park!
Steyn intercepts and scores.
Doesn't change a thing. Its a training run. Canada wouldn't bet a currie cup team or an NPC team yhey way they are playing.
Boks are playing well though, finally showing something on attack
47-0 half time.
Fake news again Beans?
Excellent vision and then the power to get to the line!!
And the superhuman reaction speed, Xavi.
Reinach and Snyman challenging for first team places.
True Crusfan, nothing to take away from that half but a good hit out and some memories for the dirt trackers.
What has caught my attention is that after all the talk been about the humidity and sweaty balls there's only been 2 or 3 knock ons from the Bokke. Some good skills on show.
Time to play around
Give Willie game time to rediscover his form
Bring him on at 15, move Willemse to 12, Gelant to 13 and play Reinach on the wing
Like the look of your halfback, good turn of speed and making good decisions this game.
Cant say i know much about him though. Age? Who does he usually play for?
Kobus Reinach. Used to play for Natal but now Northampton Saints in the Premiership.
Good start for Canada.
14 man Canada score
Cobus Reinach is the son of the late Springbok winger Jaco Reinach who also held the South African 400m record for nearly 30 years.
I once played a game of rugby against Jaco Reinach. Never got close enough to him to be embarrassed. Cobus inherited his dad's speed!
Boo, give them the try.
And they score. Great little move from the ruck to get close.
Talking of embarrassing, Canada score.
Well make sure you coach doesn't select him again please
Yeah they deserved it, nice little dummy runner bamboozling Jantjies & Steyn.
If it was a closer score i t might not have been given according to the commentators??
Boks close chasing the DA kick through.
Looked okay to me Xavi, I couldn't see him interfering with the tacklers other than briefly unsighting them. Dunno.
Jantjies on for Reinach.
As has become customary Jantjies starts out passing high.
Britz chatting up the ladies on the sideline Good man!
And now the try. Old boy having a great tournament.
Frans M & Kit sy on.
Haha, Oupa Schalk dances over. Great stuff.
Old boy in need of his salt pills now Pakie
DA should surely get a rest about now.
Mostert has made a few errors now, starting to compound them. Might be a good idea to sub him now.
Mar x knocks his first touch.
LOL, what a skew throw by the Reds.
Yeah I don't think Mostert has done his chances any good today.
Magic offload Nkosi and Boks almost get there again.
Steyn moves to 13?? Shows good hand and not greedy, puts Willemse in.
Look at that racist passing to a colored guy to score, yes.
61-7 for those who are still counting.
14-7 in the second half, have to give Canada some credit in the 2nd half
Malherbe with a good score.
Malherbe over. Good period of attack by the Boks.
Both Jantjies throwing poor passes.
Nkosi is the best back in SA.
Another high pass H Jantjies. This is without a doubt a weakness in his game.
Jantjies, very sloppy passing today.
Nkosi and Willemse save the day.
Vd Merwe drops the ball as Canada hot on attack.
So how do you lot rate that 2nd half?
19-7 in the 2nd half against 14 men
Jantjies again sloppy, after Reinachs first half display is he playing his way out of the 1/4rs?
RG named MOTM, well deserved.
Well that was fun, but well done to 14 Canadians for a superb effort in the second half.
RG Snyman a deserved MOTM. Well done to Canada on a gutsy second half. Am I right in saying they conceded fewer points with 14 men on the field than with 15?
Beeno has gone quiet i see. No comment to make?
Have to be dissapointed in the 2nd half after sich a great start. Thought the Boks would have easily cracked a hundred
Yep 19-7 in the 2nd half. Canada were way better but no excuse for such a low score with them being a man down.
Cant remember the score when the red card came out but it must be close
Similar to NZ being kept very quiet for the first 35 minutes against Namibia. Wouldnt you say, Sader?
After the red card it was a case of job done I think.
Hard to keep that motivation and energy going back on the pitch after half time. They lost the shape they had at the start and the intensity was lacking as the game opened up. Was always going to be an ask after that first half frenzy.
Also if anything the subs that came on were probably better off staying in the hotel tonight. Jantjies was poor and Pollard also had a few wayward passes which hindered play.
Elton threw a few shockers in those last 10 minutes as well. Canada wriggled of the hook as we let the line slacken.
Not very similar at all. After a great start then the red you would expect a huge score to be run up.
Canada certainly played much better in that 2nd half, great how they came back.
Yes i was dissapointed in our first half but come on you cant tell me you are happy with that 2nd half
Crusadertwit doubtless Rassie said ease up on the Cans no need to rub it in too much boys. Avoid injuries etc.
Rassie looking at the big picture.
I'm as happy with the second half in our game as what you are with the first half in yours.
Exactly as happy.
To the sixth decimal.
Too many bad passes by Boks. Can't understand it. These guys are professionals who practice every day but throw some shocking passes.
Well Beeno et. al, at least Bok fans can rest assured that they haven't pealed too soon,

Pealed? Oh you Kiwis and your unorthodox use of the English vocabulary, what a lark
