Just orc vs orc madness. Physical intimacy in the second best kind of way. Death by shoulders. May your hamstrings be sturdy, hands nimble and hits righteous.
One for the purists this one! We were spoilt last night. Pollard nervelessly kicked the decisive penalty with four minutes to go as the tense game threatened to go to extra time with the scores locked at You never know.
It was a true battle of the boot as the and World Cup champions ground out a victory that consigned Wales to their third tournament semi-final defeat after previous losses in and The two teams played out a dreadful first half of rugby dominated by turgid set-piece, crash balls and aerial combat as both sides kicked the leather off the ball.
There was none of the verve shown by England in their gripping victory over New Zealand on Saturday, but the slowed rhythm suited the Springboks.
Locked at early in the second half, centre Damian de Allende finally broke the try-scoring deadlock with a stunning individual effort.
The Bok centre shrugged off a weak challenge by Dan Biggar and fended off Owen Watkin and Tomos Williams for a fine individual five-pointer that Pollard converted.
With 20 minutes to play Wales spurned a shot at goal to go for deep lineout. The maul was thwarted but the Welsh went through multiple phases and were eventually awarded another penalty in front of the posts, electing to go for the scrum.
But Rhys Patchell and Pollard both missed with ambitious drop-goal attempts before the latter kicked his crucial fourth penalty to eliminate Wales and set up a final against England on Saturday.
After 21 phases of one-out forwards slogging it forward over a metre of turf 5m out, the Welsh got a penalty, going wide and scoring in the corner through Josh Adams.

International Stadium Yokohama , Yokohama , Japan. World Cup finals Argentina and South America Assistant referee Karl Dickson was on hand to raise his flag as the flanker put a foot in touch, however, cutting the Boks' joy short.
In a frantic beginning to the Test, full of offloads, handling errors and both sides playing on knock on advantages frequently, it was Wales who struck the opening points.
After 10 minutes, Wales capitalised on the nine phases of pressure they exerted in the Bok 22 when Jenkins - who was not even meant to start the game - threw a dummy to round hooker Malcolm Marx, break the line and offload inside to tighthead prop Francis under the challenge of Le Roux.
Just six minutes later, the home side were over for their second score, and once again it had its roots in sustained 22 pressure and a dummy to unlock the South Africa defence.
Out-half Anscombe threw a dummy to glide past Marx again and, when the ball proved unplayable deep in the Bok 22 after 11 phases, Wales had a scrum in a wonderfully attacking position - a position from which they would strike for a second try.
The Kiwi-born 10 then sent a looping pass over wing Aphiwe Dyantyi, who had been sucked in too far off his wing, offering full-back Williams space to finish a chance he was never going to miss.
Despite the efforts of Kriel, Siya Kolisi and Pollard on the cover defence - the Saracens man stepped inside the former two, and rode the challenge of the latter to ground the ball.
On 20 minutes, South Africa had their first points of the day as Wales second row Adam Beard was caught offside near halfway while charging down an Embrose Papier box-kick.
Pollard produced a superb strike from distance to make it Four minutes later, Anscombe missed touch with a penalty from hand for the second time in the opening stages, and his error was soon compounded when Marx earned a breakdown penalty.
Pollard missed off the tee, though, hooking it wide to the left to let Wales off the hook themselves. From here, Alun Wyn Jones opted for an attacking scrum rather than simple kick at goal, and it proved inspired.
With the Bok pack pushing hard for a penalty against the head, scrum-half Williams got hands on the ball before shipping it wide through the hands down the left for Adams to score in the corner - levelling Shane Williams' record of six tries at a single World Cup for Wales.
When Leigh Halfpenny fired over a sensational touchline conversion, the Test was level once again at It was Wales who were in possession and probing into the final 10 minutes, but a Rhys Patchell attempted drop-goal from distance fell short, before Bok replacement flanker Francois Louw earned a critical breakdown penalty, which relieved all pressure.
Louw's actions also saw South Africa gain territory courtesy of the penalty kick from hand, and it was via the resultant lineout on the Wales 22, that prop Lewis transgressed at the maul to give Pollard the chance for glory.
The playmaker struck the ball crisply - as he had done all evening - to it send over and put the Boks in front with very little time remaining.
Another penalty earned via the scrum deep in the Wales 22 in the closing seconds allowed South Africa to kick the ball off and celebrate victory. Place-kicking was of the highest standard though.
Pollard kicked magnificently off the tee, as did Biggar, while Halfpenny's one conversion was perhaps the most impressive strike of the night. Louw's breakdown intervention within his own half with five minutes left to turn the course of the game's finale and hand his side the chance to win was also world-class.English: Line-ups for the Rugby World Cup semi-final between Wales and South Africa, played at International Stadium Yokohama, Yokohama, on Get a summary of the South Africa vs Wales, Friendly 2 Jun, rugby match.
