Four tries, two in each half, gave the South Africans a big enough lead to survive a late Canada onslaught.

The first of the tries was scored by Zain Davids in the opening minute of the match and when Ryan Oosthuizen dotted down soon after, the Blitzboks were well in control, leading 14-0 at the break.

Davids scored his second try shortly after the break to push the Blitzboks' lead out to 21-0. Canada replied with their first try, which was immediately nullified when Tristan Leyds scored, but Canada was not done, despite the deficit.

They scored two more tries but was never going to haul in the Blitzboks.
