Imidlalo emibili yokugcina yeBlitzboks (ne-Fiji kanye neMelika) ibe mihle ukudlula yonke eyidlalile okungenani emiqhudelwaneni emibili edlule. Kuzofanele bazimisele kuma-quarter-final endebe uma sebebhekene ne-Argentina.

Umdlalo ubungeke uqale kabi kumaBlitzboks ngesikhathi uMarcos Maneta egijima kwi-try ngaphansi kwamapali kalula ngokuthanda kwakhe. Ekupheleni kwesiwombe sokuqala abadlali bakuleli bebengazange bebambe ibhola imizuzwana engaphezu kweyishumi. Babenenhlanhla yokusalela emuva ngegoli elilodwa kuphela – kodwa uma i-Argentina isikulungele ukucisha iBlitzboks lokho kungaba iphutha. 

Ngaphandle kokuthi i-chip kick kaMoneta ilungile nokuthi i-Los Pumas ibihamba phambili ngamaphuzu angu-12 – abadlali bakuleli bebengaphansi kwengcindezi. ULuciano Gonzalez ushaye igoli ngemuva komzuzu owodwa futhi iBlitzboks ibisalele emuva ngamaphuzu angu-21.

Sekusele imizuzu emibili ukuthi umdlalo uphele uJames Murphy uye wabeka iBlitzboks ebhodini lamaphuzu. Ngemuva kwemizuzwana eyishumi uMurphy uye wakwenza futhi – kodwa isikhathi besesihambile.

Kwenzekeni kwiBlitzboks ngemuva kokudlala kahle ibhekene neMelika? Akekho owaziyo. Bazodlala ne-Australia kowokuhlungela indawo yesihlanu.

UMfundo Ndhlovun ushayele elakuleli i-try eyodwa ngesikhathi bedlala ne-Australia. Uma beqhubeka nokudlala kanje kufanele kube umphumela omuhle kwiBlitzboks.

Kodwa ngemuva kwemizuzu emithathu kungenzeki lutho i-Australia iphule umgqigqo nge-try kaHenry Paterson. I-Wallabies ibihamba phambili ngamaphuzu amabili kodwa lokho kuye kwashintsha ngesikhathi uShaun Williams egijima ezungeza izimbangi ukuze ashaye igoli ngaphansi kwamapali. 

Ngemuva nje kwekhefu uTim Clements wase-Australia uye washaya elinye igoli. Nakulokhu i-Australia ibihola phambili. Igoli likaMaurice Longbottom belingaba nesinqumo – ngaphandle kokuthi uJames Murphy ashaye igoli elihle. Womabili amaqembu ashaye ama-try amathathu i-Australia yawina ngamaphuzu amabili engeziwe abawathole nge-conversion eyodwa eyengeziwe.

Elakuleli liqede lingayitholanga indondo kodwa liyaziqhenya ngobuhlakani balo.
