Boks thrash Canada to book RWC quarter-final spot


The Springboks, thanks largely to a Cobus Reinach hat-trick, booked their place in the quarter-finals of the 2019 Rugby World Cup when they hammered Canada 66-7 in Kobe on Tuesday.

The Bok scrumhalf had bagged three tries within the first 20 minutes of the contest, securing the fastest ever hat-trick in Rugby World Cup history in the process.

The Boks, in the first half in particular, were simply on a different level to their north American opponents as they ran in a total of 10 tries on the day.

The result means that the Boks will almost certainly finish second in Pool B and book a quarter-final on Sunday, October 20 against either Japan or Ireland.
