Rugby World Cup 2015: South Africa v Japan

Hie komme Bokke! Olé, olé, olé, olé! That’s right, fans – it’s time to dust off your Leon Schuster classics CD, because the World Cup is here again.

Today’s first challenge sees our nation’s finest take on the minnow-y but improving Japanese, the first time these two nations have been on opposing sides in a major conflict since 1940 (what, too soon?)

Wiley Eddie Jones, soon to be Stormers bound if the rumours are true, will certainly have a trick or two up his sleeve, but Heyneke Meyer’s finest are expected to have simply too much firepower and will want to open their pool B account with a big win. To add a little Sharks flavour to proceedings, be sure to keep an eye on Japanese winger Kotaro Matsushima, who attended the Sharks Academy and has played for the black and white at age group and Vodacom Cup level.

Kick-off is at 17h45 SA time (16h45 in the UK) and the game takes place at the famous Brighton Community Stadium, in a town where the Stormers players, at least, should feel quite at home.

South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Jean de Villiers (captain), 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Pat Lambie, 9 Ruan Pienaar, 8 Schalk Burger, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Lood de Jager, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 20 Siya Kolisi, 21 Fourie du Preez, 22 Handré Pollard, 23 JP Pietersen.

Japan: 15 Ayumu Goromaru, 14 Akihito Yamada, 13 Male Sa’u, 12 Craig Wing, 11 Kotaro Matsushima, 10 Kosei Ono, 9 Fumiaki Tanaka, 8 Hendrik Tui, 7 Michael Broadhurst, 6 Michael Leitch (captain), 5 Hitoshi Ono, 4 Luke Thompson, 3 Kensuke Hatakeyama, 2 Shota Horie, 1 Masataka Mikami
Replacements: 16 Takeshi Kizu, 17 Keita Inagaki, 18 Hiroshi Yamashita, 19 Shinya Makabe, 20 Amanaki Mafi, 21 Atsushi Hiwasa, 22 Harumichi Tatekawa, 23 Karne Hesketh
