    FT: South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    So South Africa have ended day nine with a thumping victory over neighbours Namibia in the city of Toyota.

    But the headlines belong to Japan who added another huge scalp to their growing portfolio of shock victories.

    The hosts pulled off a terrific win over Ireland, who came into the tournament as the best side in the world.

    The day began with a 25-minute hat-trick for Julian Montoya as Argentina claimed their first win of the tournament with victory over Tonga in Higashiosaka.

    We'll be back tomorrow morning to do it all over again as Wales take on Australia, so join us for that one.

    Until then...

    It's amazing to think South Africa have won comfortably but the performance was far from perfect.

    You would expect someone such as fly-half Elton Jantjies to boss the game but they have been a bit blunt in attack and not opened up the Namibia defence.

    But let's not forget they made 13 changes from the defeat by the All Blacks and it looks like they've come through this without any injuries, which is important.

    South Africa will think they should have scored 10 or 12 tries. We have talked about them being potential winners and becoming three-time champions and, yes, they have dominated Namibia but not to the level you would have expected.

  6. Full-time

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    Cliven Loubser decides he has had enough and he pops the ball into touch.

    That's that and South Africa have returned to winning ways.

  7. Post update

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    Elton Jantjies throws a no-look pass to no one before South Africa collect the ball and pump it into touch.

    The gong goes as Namibia prepare to take the line-out and this will be the final play.

  8. Post update

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    That's what happens when a front-row forward joins the attacking line!

    South Africa have a potential walk-in down the right but Steven Kitshoff knocks on with S'busiso Nkosi poised to score try number 10.

    Despite winning by over 50 points, Rassie Erasmus slams his desk in frustration.

  9. Post update

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    Johannes Coetzee is back on the field after spending 10 minutes in the bin.

    I'm not sure it will make much difference to the scoreline, but Namibia are back to full strength.

  10. Post update

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    Elton Jantjies has not been at his scintillating best today and he knocks on a relatively simple catch in midfield.

    This game has been set-up for him to shine but he hasn't had the impact he would have liked.

  11. Post update

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    As we head into the final 10 minutes, the South African 'Beast' is taken off for a breather.

    Tendai Mtawarira is replaced by Steven Kitshoff.

  12. Post update

    South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    The crowd have been fairly quiet throughout the game but there is a definite lull in the atmosphere now.

    The Springboks have been utterly dominant.

  13. Converted Try - South Africa 57-3 Namibia

    Schalk Brits (con Elton Jantjies)

    Having just brushed himself off after that hit off the ball, Schalk Brits runs in try number nine for the Springboks.

    Brits throws the ball in the line-out before joining the mall and running the ball over the line.

    Elton Jantjies adds the extras from the tee.

  14. Sin-bin

    South Africa 50-3 Namibia

    The replacement front row is sent to the bin and South Africa nudge the penalty into touch.

  15. Post update

    South Africa 50-3 Namibia

    Schalk Brits is down and he is taken out of the ball, with what looks like a shoulder charge, by Johannes Coetzee.

    The referee is going upstairs to the TMO and there could be a card coming...

  16. Post update

    South Africa 50-3 Namibia

    Still no sign of exciting winger Cheslin Kolbe, who could cause mayhem against a tiring Namibian defence.

    Still under 20 minutes to go...

  17. Try - South Africa 50-3 Namibia

    Siya Kolisi

    South African captain Siya Kolisi joins the party, having just come off the bench, to score try number eight.

    There are lots of tired Namibian legs around the field now and South Africa have the potential to run riot.

    Elton Jantjies hooks his conversion wide.

  18. Replacement

    South Africa 45-3 Namibia

    It's not going to get any easier for Namibia as Eben Etzebeth enters the fray.

    He joins Siya Kolisi and Damian de Allende as second-half replacements for the Boks.

  19. Converted Try - South Africa 45-3 Namibia

    Makazole Mapimpi (con Elton Jantjies)

    It's all a bit too easy.

    Makazole Mapimpi scores his second try, and South Africa's seventh, as South Africa up the ante after that brief period of handbags.

    That's his 10th try in 10 Tests and Elton Jantjies kicks the conversion.
