South Africa 29 – United States 12

In the opener, Egon Seconds gave South Africa the lead when he went over for a try, with Monty Dumond kicking the conversion to give South Africa the 7 – 0 lead. The United States drew level when Taylor Howden went over for a try, and Ata Malifa kicked the conversion to draw the teams at 7 – 7.

South Africa went go back in front when Thinus Delport scored a try, but Brian Bernard would equalize yet again for the United States making the score 12 – 12.

The second half proved to be all South Africa, as they scored 17 unanswered points. JP Nel, Nico Breedt and Reinhard Gerber all added a try each, with Dumond kicking one conversion.


Italy 6 – New Zealand 12

New Zealand had to come from behind to advance to the 2015 World Rugby Classic semi-finals pulling out a 12 – 6 win over Italy.

After a scoreless first half, Ramiro Pez kicked a drop goal two minutes into the second half to give Italy a 3 – 0 lead, Pez then kicked a penalty with 16:25 remaining on the clock to give Italy a 6 – 0 lead.

This spurred the New Zealand team on, having dropped several catches near the line, Johnny Weslow finally held onto a pass to score a try and when Brendan Laney kicked the conversion the New Zealand team changed gear.

The win was confirmed late in the match when Kelvin Middleton scored a try for New Zealand to give them the 12 – 6 win.
