7:35 pm
to clamp down on high tackles, moriarty was always going to pay for this. while he was in the sin bin, his team were punished. the french had a 9—point lead going into half—time. france needed to keep their discipline. instead, an act of violence as daft as it was dangerous here from vahaamahina. the fans showed what they thought, the officials agreed, france would play the last half hour one man down. although games can hinge on such moments, wales struggled to make their advantage count. but with the final whistle approaching, the ball bobbled loose and moriarty rescued his team. dan biggar‘s conversion edging wales ahead for the first time. france's heroic defiance was over, they had left it late, they had ridden their luck, but wales had dug deep into their resolve and somehow found a way. a second home nation through to the semifinals. all of wales will be breathing a huge sigh of relief tonight after one of their team's most important and dramatic victories. far from their best here, but having found a way to prevail

7:37 pm
this was the night where japan's fairy tale world cup came to an end as south africa were too much for them. japan pulled off one of the greatest upsets in rugby when they beat south africa in the world cup once, but south africa soon took control after the first try after three minutes by mapimpi. japan would have been fearing the worst at that stage, but they got a penalty which narrowed the gap, at that stage depend very much still in it. in the second half, south africa stretched clear, three penalties from pollard, and two late tries sealed their passage through to the last four. the first one was from de klerk. there scored another one to seal their victory. south africa go through to the semifinals where they will face wales. as forjapan, it
