This weekend’s matches should be quite exciting! I’ll probably only manage to catch the South Africa vs Wales game, but I’ll be watching the results of the other quarterfinal matches with great interest.
I am a bit disappointed about England not making it through the quarterfinals — I was half-hoping to see South Africa play against them at some stage, ideally a repeat of the 2007 World Cup.
Japan played really well all things considered, so I would have liked to see them progress to this round as well.
The highlight of the group stages for me was seeing Bryan Habana, who incidentally is one of my favourite rugby players, match Jonah Lomu’s World Cup try-scoring record.
