Despite suffering the biggest shock in Rugby World Cup history, when they lost to the Cherry Blossoms of Japan in their opening fixture of the 2015 tournament in Brighton, the South Africa Springboks, have recovered to take the pole position in Pool B, and set themselves up to clinch top position, and what should be an advantageous quarter-final draw.

They complete their Pool fixtures on Wednesday at the Olympic Park in London, with a match against the winless United States of America. Victory for the Springboks will ensure that they finish at the top of the Pool, whatever their rivals might manage to do over the course of the final weekend of qualifying. Since the humbling result against Japan, the Boks have come out to crush both Samoa and Scotland, who were seen as their biggest rivals for the qualifying positions before the tournament began. In winning those two games, the Africans have scored 9-1 tries, and posted a total of 90 points.

These two nations haven't met since the 2007 World Cup in France, when the Springboks scored nine tries on their way to a 64-15 win. This was the year that the Boks recorded their second success at the World Cup, to go with their stunning Rainbow Nation success on home soil in 1995.
