South Africa vs Italy in both sides third match of the Rugby World Cup. South Africa lost to New Zealand in their opening game before beating Namibia with ease. Italy have registered back to back bonus-point wins in their fist two matches against Namibia and Canada
South Africa claimed their first win of the 2019 Rugby World Cup with a 57-3 thrashing of Namibia.
The Springboks had lost their opening Pool B fixture to New Zealand, but Rassie Erasmus’ side predictably eased to victory in Toyota City by running in nine tries against their African neighbours.
Namibia, at 23 the lowest-ranked team at the World Cup, included university students, a brewery engineer and a qualified dentist in their part-time ranks and were placed under fierce pressure from the start.
South Africa dominated every facet of play and only some careless handling prevented a bigger margin of victory that might have had World Cup statisticians scrambling for the record books.

Springboks vs Italy: Match preview
There’s only one match at the Rugby World Cup on Friday, but it’s a mouthwatering clash.
The Springboks take on Italy in a massive Pool B matchup.
After two matches, Italy are top of the group with 10 points. That’s followed wins over Namibia and Canada in Italy’s first two matches.
Meanwhile, the Springboks are third. South Africa lost their opener to the All Blacks, before they beat Namibia.
If Italy manage to beat South Africa, the Europeans will be in a great position to advance to the knockout phase of the competition.
However, South Africa have dominated Italy previously. After 14 previous matches, Italy have one win while the Springboks have 13.
