Rugby World Cup 2015: South Africa 32-34 Japan

#AceSportsNews – Sept.19: Japan stunned two-time champions South Africa to cause arguably the biggest upset in rugby union history.

Karne Hesketh crossed in the final minute to win an incredible World Cup Pool B encounter in Brighton.

South Africa led 12-10 at half-time through tries from Francois Louw and Bismark du Plessis.

Lood de Jager and Adriaan Strauss then scored to keep the Springboks ahead, but Ayumu Goromaru contributed 24 points before Hesketh’s dramatic try.

The Brave Blossoms had not won a World Cup game since 1991, while South Africa, winners in 1995 and 2007, had never before lost their opening game of the tournament.
