Can they use it? De Klerk driving it, de Allende is penalised for double movement as he goes down in installments, onto all fours and then gets up again to charge over the tryline.
Barnes calls him. Seems harsh?
Escape for Japan. And that's it. Incredibly it's only The whistle goes. Japan fly out of defence and they're caught offside. South Africa kick for touch and they're targeting a drop goal surely.
Another opportunity spurned with Japan visibly tiring here. Penalty given away for obstruction. Simple mistakes made and Japan can now clear and build their own pressure. Lineout for Japan again. They win it and use it quickly. Pushed back but they've still got it. Leitch loses it and now South Africa can pounce.
Japan rush out and the space is there to run into for the Springboks, they've got a three on one. Am has it but the offload out of the backhand to Mapimpi is poor and chucked at his toes, it trickles out into touch.
Up they go to halfway for a Japan lineout.
South Africa recylce from the scrum and Mapimpi gets the chance to stretch his legs down the wing. Japan stop him in his tracks, Willie Le Roux almost gets through himself. They're in the Japanese half. De Klerk goes for touch and finds it, into the Japanese South Africa defending with all they've got.
Little flick from Leitch on the wing, Kolisi loses it on the wing from the interception. This is crazy rugby. But we come back for an offside. South Africa's strong defence doing the job here.
It collapses. Quick tap and go. Japan running with it down the wing, forced back inside and Leitch has it on the wing.
Suddenly up to halfway and such quick hands, they ride a few challenges and the offloads meet a team-mate's hands. Springboks concede a penalty and Japan kick into the opposition Japan win it and they're away.
South Africa almost intercept but Am can't hold on and knocks on. Japan scrum. South Africa have a lineout around the halfway line. What noise. South Africa get stuck and the scrum collapses. Huge roars! The offloads are fast, the movement electric from Japan.
But eventually there's a forward pass. The pace is ridiculous from the breakdown here. Japan taking so many risks. That's so well worked by Japan, thyey're into the Fearless running with the ball.
They're on the tryline but after endless phases, the penalty is called for South Africa for coming in at the side. Breathless attacking, incredible running, quick hands moved from side to side.
Fukuoka it was with the initial burst. Leitch and Le Roux contest a high ball from Tamura, collision in mid air and the ball drops from green hands. Japan have another scrum. Mtawarira Japan give as good as they've got in the scrum but South Africa respond.
It's a yellow card, it looks awful on replay and could have been a red.

Well officiated by Wayne Barnes, dispersing the aggro and making a cool, calm decision. Mapimpi stretches his legs and charges but is brought down. Japan rip it away and they're rushing upfield, chip and run but there's a knockon and South Africa have the scrum. Lovely chip from Temura but it just evades Leitch.
The bounce just wasn't there. Mapimpi Mapimpi rides the first challenge and he's through. De Klerk used the ball quickly from the big push, Mapimpi charges through and finds the gap.
Tamura had no chance.
South Africa have the scrum. Get the ball early and Tamura with the little chip into space inside their own Japan claim it from a South Africa fumble and clear to halfway.
Already the fizzle is there.
Here we go. Time for the anthems, and what a stage this is. Can Japan do it again?
