In one of the most surprising upsets in Rugby World Cup or Test Match history, Japan stunned South Africa 34-32.

This compares to Tonga's RWC 2011 victory against France.

It represents the most significant, unexpected win since Ireland Women defeated New Zealand in the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup.

Three questions:

1. How badly have the Boks prepared for this RWC?

2. How good are Japan?

3. How does this win alter the dynamics in Pool B?




This is not "one of" the most surprising upsets in RWC history. And Tonga beating France last time around doesn't compare to this at all.
