Rugby World Cup updates from Pool B at the Olympic Stadium Digital wallchart: full results, tables and fixtures Email email@example.com or tweet @MartinPengelly 3.55pm BST Good morning – I’m writing that because I’m actually watching this in New York, where it’s a little before 11am, which is a bit odd but entirely apt in the circs, I’m sure you’ll all agree. If not, good afternoon and welcome “to” the Olympic Stadium in London, where South Africa face the US Eagles needing a win to ensure a quarter-final place. If it helps, you can imagine me in that old Football Focus “virtual reality” studio – the one in which Gary Lineker sat inside a “soccer ball” (yes, soccer, remember where I am) and you could see odd blue blurry bits at his edges. @MartinPengelly @guardian_sport and some imperial angst thrown in... 10.40am BST South Africa: Willie Le Roux; Bryan Habana, Jesse Kriel, Damian de Allende, Lwazi Mvovo; Handre Pollard, Fourie Du Preez (capt); Tendai Mtawarira, Bismarck du Plessis, Frans Malherbe, Eben Etzebeth, Lood de Jager, Francois Louw, Schalk Burger, Duane Vermeulen Replacements: Schalk Brits. Trevor Nyakane, Coenie Oosthuizen, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Willem Alberts, Rudy Paige, Morne Steyn, Jan Serfontein. USA: Blaine Scully; Brett Thompson, Folau Niua, Andrew Suniula, Zach Test; Shalom Suniula, Niku Kruger; Oli Kilifi, Phil Thiel, Chris Baumann, Louis Stanfillm, Matthew Trouville, Danny Barrett, John Quill, Samu Manoa (capt). Replacements: Joe Taufetee, Zach Fenoglio, Mate Moeakiola, Titi Lamositele, Cam Dolan, Al McFarland, Mike Petri, Chris Wyles. 9.57am BST Martin will be here shortly. In the meantime, here’s Michael Aylwin’s preview of today’s match. To outside eyes their crisis may have been averted but within the South Africa camp the eyes remain cold with focus as they approach their final pool match against the USA . If they win, they will top the group; lose, and they may yet be out. It is testament to the progress the less-established nations have made at this World Cup that we are careful to couch such a sentence with its full stock of conditionals. “The thing is,” said Bismarck du Plessis, who now seems restored as South Africa’s hooker, “the second tier nations are so much more competitive. Georgia, Samoa and Japan – where it used to be that for the first 10 or 20 minutes they’d be competitive, now they stick it out for 80 minutes. That’s a good thing for rugby. It means we’re growing the game that I love.” Continue reading...
