Replay on Foxtel Go begins in about ten minutes. I normally can't watch sport when it's not live, but I'm watching this!

By the way, random question, but is that giant bearded Frenchman still around? I don't know his name but he was a bit of a cult figure in past years?

Watching the start of this game and I can't imagine what happens. The Boks seem dominant. Should've gone 14-3 up at the 22 minute mark but they blew an absolute sitter of a try.

Chabal! No, unfortunately he hasn't played internationally in about four years and I think his domestic career finished a year or two ago.

I've seen some astonishing things happen on the rugby field, and that is an all-time great, up there with Jonah Lomu pulverising Mike Catt in 1995 and Stephen Donald's miracle penalty to win the World Cup in 2011.

The Japanese lived up to their name as the Brave Blossoms, that's for sure. I can't believe the courage in keeping going for the try when they had multiple opportunities to kick a penalty and draw the game. Their set plays were great - you can hardly fault their lineouts or scrums and their mauls were incredible (the impossible-to-tell try in the 79th minute with basically the whole team in the maul!). The Boks had moments of brilliance sprinkled with moments of unimaginable garbage and shocking decision-making.

For the sport of rugby as a global game, this is basically the best result ever. Keep in mind Japan have played in every World Cup to date and before today had only ever won once, back in 1991, against lowly Zimbabwe. They'd never played South Africa before. Now we have the bizarre sight of South Africa having a 0% win record against Japan - their lowest win record until now was 39% against New Zealand!

Surely in the context of world rugby a 39% winning record against NZ is pretty decent?!

Ah, nice. What a guy. Always remembered the massive deal the commentators would make of him whenever he was onscreen.

It is, in fact, the best. Australia has the second-best winning record against the All Blacks; they beat us 27% of the time. France is the only other country to win more than 20% of their games against the All Blacks.

Gross ill-discipline by the All Blacks today against Argentina. Thank god we emerged with the win.

The All Blacks are so middling against Namibia right now it's ridiculous. Should be killing them by much more but I'm just not feeling a lot of intensity out there. Neither performance so far this Cup inspires confidence.

All Blacks going through the motions.

I want anyone but England to win it (i'm English as well) - prefer NZ to win, if not Aussies would do

Oh god how rubbish are the All Blacks, seriously. Disgusting amount of handling errors against Georgia today. We should be putting the minnows away but we're making a right meal of it. Should be smoother and more clinical than this, even if we don't care. It shouldn't be so bloody obvious that we don't care.
