Kenki Fukuoka is very powerful and explosive winger who has already scored four tries for the Brave Blossoms during the group stage. The Springboks will look to their own flying machine in 25-year-old Toulouse wing Cheslin Kolbe, who can capitalize on the smallest spaces with thrilling effect when he’s given the ball.

Japan v South Africa Betting Odds & Tip

South Africa are the very warm favourites to take this at just 1/6 (1.18) at William Hill with Japan very much the underdogs at 11/2 (6.50) with bet365*. The draw can be backed at 40/1 with Betfair.

With the home support, we can expect another full blooded attempt from Japan who may give the Springboks another scare after famously beating them in 2015. We’ll take them on the handicap with a +15 point start at odds of 10/11 (1.91) with bet365.
