Boks mauled on social media; some of the best SA-Japan memes

Social media users have poked fun at the Springboks' 34-32 loss to Japan.

JOHANNESBURG - Japan has caused the biggest upset in Rugby World Cup history by beating the Springboks 34-32 in their opening game of the tournament.

The Boks outscored the Brave Blossoms by four tries to three, but that wasn't enough, as Japan beat South Africa for the very first time.

Upset and shocked people then took to Twitter to share their frustrations at the result.

For the number 13 team to beat the number three ranked team in world rugby is certainly the performance of the tournament thus far.
