Tip South Africa - Canada
South Africa play their final pool match and a win will take them into the last eight barring an incredible win for Italy over New Zealand in the last match. The South Africans lost to New Zealand in their pool opener but have since beaten Namibia and Italy, both with bonus points being earned. That puts them top on 10 points ahead of Italy and one ahead of New Zealand. The All-Blacks will surely go top after they defeat Nambia so it's down to South Africa to beat Canada. The Canadians are bottom of the group and in two matches so far have scored just seven points and conceded 111.
Italy put 48 points past them and then New Zealand hammered them 63-0. They have only played South Africa on two previous occasions and lost them both. The Canadians are ranked 22nd in the world and will have the aim of getting a win over Namibia in their final match to avoid finishing bottom of the pool. Go for South Africa to get a convincing win here on a -58.5 handicap.
Key points South Africa - Canada
South Africa have won two of their three games in this pool and scored 119 points.

Conclusion South Africa - Canada
South Africa can all but clinch qualification for the last eight with a win over Canada. They are likely to finish second in the pool and that could see them up against Japan in the last eight if the hosts can beat Scotland. This should be a straightforward victory over a Canadian side that have already suffered two heavy defeats.
