Rugby JWC semi-finals set

Yesterday was the final day of the round robin tournament in the Rugby Junior World Championship, and there were no real surprises as Australia, New Zealand, England, and South Africa all won their respective pools to earn a berth in the semi-finals. Australia will face their long-time rivals New Zealand at 5:00 here in Tokyo, followed by England and South Africa at 7:00. It should be a great day of rugby and I'll be there to watch it.

In other news, Canada lost all 3 of their round-robin matches and will play Uruguay in the 13th-16th place semi-finals. With the loss, Canada will not play in next years JWC. Japan also suffered the same fate, so perhaps these two teams will face each other in the final day of the tournament, likely for 15th place.
