Springbok Fans in shock and disbelief!

702's John Robbie is in London for the biggest rugby event of the sporting calender, he reflects on South Africa's devastating loss against Japan in their opening match at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

John Robbie says that at halftime last night, Springbok fans and Japanese fans still believed that the Springboks would pick it up and win the match over their opponents before the crushing defeat at the end of the match!
