South Africa have denied Wales a semi final victory and a clash with England in a thrilling match at the Rugby World Cup in Japan. 

The Springboks knocked out Wales for the second tournament in a row in a razor close game that saw the teams tied 16-16 with just over ten minutes to go. 

But a penalty from South Africa with four minutes of play was enough to win the game and send Wales out of the tournament. 

South Africa will now face England - who defeated the New Zealand All Blacks on Saturday by 19-7- in the final on November 2.
