The Springboks’ loss to Japan left many fans here at home and abroad dejected in their opening game of the 2015 Rugby World Cup on Saturday.
The Boks were stunned 34-32 in Brighton by a gutsy Japanese outfit, coached by former Bok assistant coach Eddie Jones, with the side scoring the winning try in the dying seconds of the game.
702's Xolani Gwala today spoke to a Springbok fan in the UK about the atmosphere during, before and after the match.
The result sent shock waves across the world, with talk from some former players indicating that players should take responsibility for the result.
The Boks will next face Samoa in their second Pool B game at Villa Park in Birmingham, where they will go in search of redemption.
