first_imgIt was a painful evening for Canada as the Springboks ran riot in Kobe Fancy dress: Fans enjoy the action in Kobe (Getty Images)Back the Boks came, though. Schalk Brits battling his way over from a couple of metres out despite the attentions of a handful of defenders – not bad for a 38-year-old – and Damian Willemse finishing off a sweeping backs move that left Canada short of defenders.Frans Malherbe took the try count into double figures with a close-range finish after Siya Kolisi had made ground down the left.Canada will no doubt try to build on the positives from an improved second-half performance that prevented the Boks from taking this scoreline to three figures, which at one point looked possible. However, with a short turnaround before their final game against Namibia on Sunday, the African side will fancy their chances of picking up a first World Cup win.Star ManDamian Willemse showed some lovely touches at full-back and Cobus Reinach certainly took his chance in the No 9 shirt, scoring three tries in ten minutes and bringing pace and energy to the Springboks attack. Yet RG Snyman was the one who stood out for us – and not just because he’s probably a good head taller than everyone else on the pitch.

We conceded only one penalty in the first half, but the second half started badly with five penalties in five minutes. So it was a solid performance, especially in the first half.”Canada coach Kingsley Jones: “The way the Springboks started took us by surprise. Their pace and physicality we couldn’t deal with. There was a lot of thinking in the sheds at half-time. There wasn’t a lot we could do about the first 40 minutes. The only thing we could change was the second 40 minutes and I thought the boys fought admirably with 14 players.”The TeamsSouth Africa: Damian Willemse; Warrick Gelant, Damian De Allende (Handre Pollard 62), Frans Steyn, S’busiso Nkosi; Elton Jantjies, Cobus Reinach (Herschel Jantjies 52); Thomas du Toit (Steven Kitshoff 54), Schalk Brits (Malcolm Marx 58), Vincent Koch (Frans Malherbe 54), RG Snyman, Franco Mostert, Siya Kolisi (captain), Kwagga Smith, Francois Louw.Tries: De Allende 2, Nkosi 6, Reinach 10, 18, 20, Gelant 28, Steyn 40, Brits 55, Willemse 66, Malherbe 73.

This match needs only a one-word summary. Forget Tier One and Tier Two, this was more like a game played between teams from different stratospheres such was the gulf in class between South Africa and Canada in the first half.Yes, Canada rallied in the second half to stem the flow, but the game was already lost by that point.Inside the first quarter, the Springboks wrapped up the bonus point and Cobus Reinach scored a hat-trick as they started at a ferocious pace. It was almost as if the Boks had entered the 100m sprint while the Canadians had pitched up thinking it was the marathon.It was bad enough that they had conceded six tries in half an hour – their defence extremely poor at times – but just as Canada had their first sniff of a try and built pressure of their own in the opposition 22, Josh Larsen steamed into a ruck to clear out Thomas du Toit.Seeing red: Josh Larsen was sent off shortly before half-time (Getty Images)Not only did he illegally enter from the side but he connected with the neck of the Bok prop. A red card and Canada were down to 14 men for the rest of the game.The Boks started at warp speed to score within two minutes, Damian De Allende going over after a strong carry from RG Snyman. Soon after Kwagga Smith put S’busiso Nkosi over in the corner with a neat offload.Then came Reinach’s hat-trick. He scored three tries in ten minutes and the first was the pick of the bunch… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Fast show: Cobus Reinach runs in the first of his tries (Getty Images) Oh Reinach, that is perfection The old chip and charge from the scrum-half and that’s three tries in 10 minutes for the Boks #RCW2019 #ITVRugby pic.twitter.com/PJtHDEG2SM— ITV Rugby (@ITVRugby) October 8, 2019Warrick Gelant got the sixth when beating three defenders in a tight space to score in the corner.Then finally Canada made a break. Phil Mack started things off in his own 22 before Evan Olmstead released Jeff Hassler and the wing broke into the South Africa half. The Boks conceded a penalty, Canada kicked for the corner and got close to the line before Larsen’s shoulder stepped in to abruptly end that momentum.The final play of the half probably summed up the evening for Canada, Frans Steyn picking off Mack’s pass from a quick tap near the line and scoring probably the simplest try of his career. It was 47-0 at the break and the omens looked ominous for Canada.There was a renewed vigour to the team in red at the start of the second period, a desire to salvage a semblance of pride. In fact, you could say they played better with 14 men – and they did get an early try. Hassler cut a nice line following a lineout maul and Matt Heaton then finished things off from close range.last_img read more

A division bench comprising of Chief Justice Biswanath Somadder and Justice H.S. Thangkhiew made the observation. The High Court was dealing with an appeal preferred by Meghalaya Public Service Commission (MPSC) and three other persons challenging an order passed by the single judge of the Court dated 09.12.2020. The single judge had directed for breaking open the seal of a CBI enquiry report in the presence of the parties. However, when the appeal came before the High Court, the division bench observed that the direction issued by the single judge to break open the CBI report could only have been done after “returning final or at least prima facie finding on the contentious issues” which was not done in the instant matter. At the outset, the bench reiterated an earlier order of the division bench of the High Court in W.A. No. 67 of 2016 wherein it was observed that “Obviously, after returning final or at least prima facie finding on the contentious issues, the aspects relating to CBI report may also be examined by the learned Single Judge and appropriate decision thereupon could be taken in accordance with law.” Therefore, in view of this, the High Court observed: “It is palpably evident that the learned Single Judge has not returned any final or even a prima facie finding on the contentious issues. As such, we are of the view that the directions of the learned Single Judge to break open the seal in the presence of the parties to the lis is not in accordance with the observations made by the Division Bench in WA No.67 of 2016.” Subsequently, the Court set aside the order dated 09.12.2020 as the same could not be sustained in view of the observations discussed above.
