The Blitzbokke scored first in their semifinal against New Zealand in Canada to lead 5-0. However, a very physical New Zealand immediately came back to score three tries of their own to lead 15-5 at halftime. Two tries by New Zealand gave them a 27-5 lead with the miracle boys only able to add two consolations tries to lose 15-27.

The Blitzboks will play against the loser of the other semifinal between Australia and hosts Canada @ 2:58 South African time
