LONDON - South Africa will play Wales in the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup next Saturday at Twickenham Stadium in London

That after earlier on today Australia beat wales 15-6 to secure top spot in Pool A.

It was a tense affair in which Australia didn't offer much on attack while Wales were wasteful in the second half and opted to turn down opportunities to kick at goal.

It was impressive from Wallabies who at one time were down to 13 men but held Warran Gatland's team at bay for over 20 minutes of sustained attack on their own line.

Australia led 9-6 at half-time, the two Wales penalties coming via the boot of Dan Biggar.

Bernard Foley kicked all of the points for Australia with five penalties.

Wales will certainly be a huge prospect for Heyneke Meyer's side but the physical toll and the extra rest that the Springboks have had will count hugely in their favour.

What a match in store next Saturday while on Sunday the other confirmed quarterfinal sees Australia take on Scotland.
