With Pool A ranked as the group of death Australia made sure of top spot before facing England next at Twickenham, this should be a mouth-watering contest after the host nation were narrowly defeated by Wales in a thrilling encounter of tough rugby last night.

Next up was Scotland vs USA, the US put up a brave performance in the first half taking a 7 point lead at Elland Road into the break.

USA have never led a Tier 1 side at half-time and have never beaten Scotland, will they make history today? The second half saw a more rampant Scottish side in what would be their second successive 33-point second half comeback.

The Springboks without their captain Jean De Villiers who suffered a broken jaw after the Samoan game last night, better bring their A game for the full 80 minutes against this Scottish team when they face each other on the 3 October.
