Tonga gave captain Siale Piutau a parting gift of a first victory of the Rugby World Cup with a 31-19 win over the United States on Sunday that left the Eagles pointless at the end of their campaign.

Piutau, who was celebrating his 34th birthday in his 43rd and final Test at his third World Cup, scored a try and kicked the last conversion at Hanazono Rugby Stadium as the Tongans finished off their tournament in style.

Tongan prop Siegfried Fisi'ihoi opened the scoring and centre Malietoa Hingano crossed to give the Pacific islanders the lead around the hour mark, with fullback Telusa Veainu adding the fourth try after the final gong.

Replacement Mike Te'o had scored two tries with his first two touches in four first-half minutes to give the United States a 12-7 halftime lead and flanker Tony Lamborn added a try two minutes from time, but the Americans will go home winless.

For much of the 80 minutes it was easy to remember that these were two teams that had failed to secure a victory between them in six previous matches, albeit in a tough Pool C that also include England, France and Argentina.

After a moment's silence to remember those affected by Typhoon Hagibis, which ripped through the Tokyo area overnight, the Tongans looked desperate to make the quick start that had eluded them in their previous matches.

A combination of poor choices in attack kept them off the scoresheet until the 17th minute when winger Viliami Lolohea shoved aside a couple of tacklers for a 40-metre break and Fisi'ihoi forced his way over the line.

Two minutes later Eagles skipper Blaine Scully was forced off injured and replaced by Te'o, who plays scrumhalf, winger and fullback but has the build of a prop.

The Californian had immediate impact on the right wing, taking a sublime one-handed offload from number eight Cam Dolan to score his first try before adding a second from a similar position after a lofted pass from fullback Will Hooley.

The Tongans came out firing in the second half to try and reel in the Eagles but more poor decision-making saw them waste overlap after overlap.

Sonatane Takulua took a shot at goal to cut the deficit to three points in the 51st minute and Hingano got the Tongans back in front when a hack through from a turnover found no one at home in the U.S. defence seven minutes later.

Piutau found a gap in the same defence to slide through and score his try four minutes later, the sides each scoring tries in the dying minutes to round out the clash.

"We've had some adversity but hopefully we've come up with a performance that made our people proud," said Piutau, who was named man of the match.

"We came with a mindset to leave it all out there, leave no stones unturned and I think we did that today."

World Player of the Year Johnny Sexton scored two tries as 14-man Ireland secured a 47-5 bonus-point win over Samoa to reach the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

Ireland had Bundee Aki sent off for a high tackle in the first half but they were still too much for Samoa as they qualified from a tight Pool A despite their shock loss to Japan.

With Ireland safely through to the play-offs it leaves Japan and Scotland in a straight shoot-out on Sunday for the remaining Pool A slot.

If the game is cancelled because of Typhoon Hagibis, which slammed into Japan on Saturday, the host team will qualify ahead of Scotland.

Whoever tops the pool will play South Africa in the quarter-finals while the runner-up will face defending champions New Zealand, whose final match against Italy was cancelled because of the typhoon.

Ireland were down to 14 men in the 28th minute when Aki, who is of Samoan descent, was sent off for a shoulder to the head of Samoan fly-half Ulupano Seuteni.

Earlier, Samoa hooker Seilala Lam had been yellow-carded for a similar high shot, but he had tried to lower his point of contact while Aki remained upright and referee Nic Berry ruled there was "a high degree of danger".

Ireland were up 21-5 at the time, but even with a man down they still managed the bonus-point fourth try before half-time when Sexton scored his second.

In the second half, amid farcical scenes of ground staff repairing huge divots that opened up in the newly laid turf, Ireland added three more tries and kept Samoa scoreless.

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt had complained before the match that the All Blacks would benefit from the extended break caused by the cancellation of their game against Italy.

But, there was an advantage too for Ireland who started with a solid win against Scotland then went off the boil against Japan and Russia, and Samoa gave them a chance to get their green machine working smoothly again.

As forecast strong winds in Fukuoka from the outer edges of the typhoon did not eventuate, Conor Murray and Sexton were able to work on their kicking game to give Ireland a territorial advantage.

From there, Tadgh Furlong and James Ryan led an emerald tide that bullied their way forward.

The opening try to Rory Best came from a lineout drive and Furlong scored the second by charging directly into the Samoan defensive wall and emerging on the other side with the try line in front of him.

Fullback Jordan Larmour, who was a threat each time he ran with the ball, created the gap which gave Sexton his first try.

Jack Lam put Samoa on the board with a try before Sexton scored the vital fourth try right on half-time when Murray went the short side from a five-metre scrum.

It was another blindside move by Murray early in the second half that saw Larmour go over in the corner.

When flanker TJ Ioane was sent to the sin-bin for a ruck infringement, one of 17 penalties conceded by Samoa, Ireland mounted a sustained forward-led attack which resulted in a try to backrower CJ Stander before Andrew Conway completed their scoring.


Ireland 47

Tries: Sexton 2, Best, Furlong, Larmour, Stander, Conway

Cons: Sexton 4, Carbery 2

Red card: Aki (28')

Tries: Lam

Yellow Card: Ioane (58')


Wales secured a quarter-final spot after holding out a fierce Fiji outfit in Oita.

Scotland will play Japan for a spot in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals after a 26-point haul from Adam Hastings helped them to a nine-try, 61-0 thrashing of Russia on Wednesday.

A Scottish side boasting 14 changes from the team that beat Samoa 34-0 last week easily outgunned a Russian side ranked 20th in the world and which had suffered three defeats in their three previous Pool A games (Japan 30-10, Samoa 34-9, Ireland 35-0).

Scotland coach Gregor Townsend had no option but to rest the likes of big guns Greig Laidlaw, Finn Russell, Stuart Hogg, Blade Thompson and Johnny Gray, with only a four-day turnover before the game against Japan in Yokohama on Sunday.

Townsend's bet on a largely second-string side producing enough to seal the win paid off, however, with Hastings -- son of legendary former captain Gavin -- running the show with aplomb at Shizuoka's Ecopa Stadium.

The result leaves Scotland on 10 points in Pool A while unbeaten hosts Japan have 14 and Ireland -- who play Samoa in Fukuoka on Saturday -- 11. Only the two top sides will advance to the knock-out phase.

"That's stage one of a two-stage week completed," Townsend said.

"We've watched a lot of Japan. I know they will have watched a lot of us too. And they've had big rests into all their games... we've just got to make sure we deliver our best performance," he added.

"We'll have to because Japan are a very good team."

Tries: Horne 3, Hastings 2, Turner, Seymour, Barclay, McInally

Cons: Hastings 8

Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez showed Argentina what they had been missing with a masterful first-half performance Wednesday, as the eliminated Pumas restored some pride with a 47-17 win against the United States at the Rugby World Cup.

Sanchez was controversially left out of the matchday 23 for the crunch match against England last Saturday, which Argentina lost 39-10, resulting in their first exit at the pool stages since 2003.

But the Stade Francais playmaker ran the show against the United States in Kumagaya, getting Argentina off the mark after a cagey first 20 minutes by outpacing US fullback Mike Te'o to the line.

Sanchez was also instrumental in the second try, a carefully weighted chip over the American backs resulting in a cruel bounce that deceived Te'o and allowed Puma fullback Joaquin Tuculet to dot down.

Tuculet grabbed the third as well, again made by Sanchez who pulled in several defenders, leaving the US short of numbers out wide and giving the fullback a one-on-one that he took with ease.

On the stroke of half-time, the Eagles had a score of their own, a nicely weighted kick by fly-half AJ MacGinty chased over the goal line by captain Blaine Scully, who celebrated by spiking the ball down American-football style.

But the more-fancied Pumas extended their advantage just four minutes into the second half, a mazy run by Bautista Delguy from behind his own try-line setting up position for centre Juan Cruz Mallia to crash over under the posts for the bonus point.

With nothing to lose, Argentina were playing a highly entertaining brand of free-flowing rugby and slicing through American defences seemingly at will.

Mallia was through again under the posts eight minutes into the second half.

On the other hand, the United States were being let down by their set-piece, losing ball at two line-outs in a row, resulting in the sixth Argentina try from Jeronimo De La Fuente, his first in 25 Tests.

The USA scored two consolation tries by Paul Lasike and an injury-time effort by Scully but never looked like troubling the Pumas, who have never lost to the Eagles in their eight-match history.

Replacement Gonzalo Bertranou put the icing on the Argentina cake with a seventh score after the Pumas had again carved up a defensively questionable US midfield.

The match ended a disappointing World Cup for the Pumas, who could consider themselves unlucky to suffer a last-minute 23-21 defeat to France in their first match but were let down by indiscipline against England, losing a man to a red card.

As for the United States, they will be targeting their one "winnable" match in Pool C as they take on Tonga on Sunday in an attempt to avoid the wooden spoon from the "group of death."


Argentina 47

Tries: Tuculet 2, Cruz Mallia 2, De La Fuente, Bertranou

Cons: Sanchez 5, Urdapilleta

USA 17

Tries: Scully 2, Lasike

Cons: MacGinty


South Africa's Cobus Reinach scored the fastest hat-trick in Rugby World Cup history as the Springboks all but assured themselves of a place in the quarter-finals with a 66-7 hammering of Canada in Kobe on Tuesday.

The Springboks ran in 10 tries, including seven in a first-half that featured scrum-half Reinach's 11-minute treble.

That was quicker than Australia fullback Chris Latham's 25-minute hat-trick in a 142-0 thrashing of Namibia at Adelaide during the 2003 World Cup.

South Africa led 47-0 at the break against an outclassed Canada, who had to play more than half the match a man down after replacement lock Josh Larsen was sent off.

But Canada, just six days on from a 63-0 loss to reigning champions New Zealand, avoided a whitewash thanks to flanker Matt Heaton's try.

This bonus-point victory should see two-time world champions South Africa into the last eight after an opening Pool B defeat by the All Blacks, with hosts Japan -- who stunned the Springboks 34-32 at the 2015 World Cup in England -- now looming as possible opponents.

"It was scrappy in stages but I can't moan about 10 tries," said Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus.

"Obviously they got a red card that made it a little bit easier for us. So overall, not too bad."

Canada, who have appeared in every World Cup, have one more chance for a win at this edition when they face fellow minnows Namibia in Kamaishi on Sunday, a game captain Tyler Ardron described as "hugely important."

"It's a game we've really targeted. We want to put our best performance out and we really want to get a result out of that," said Ardron.


South Africa 66

Tries: Reinach 3, de Allende, Nkosi, Gelant, Steyn, Brits, Willemse, Malherbe

Cons: Jantjies 8

Canada 7

Tries: Heaton

Cons: Nelson


France qualified for the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals on Sunday with a nailbiting 23-21 win against Tonga that sets up a winner-takes-all clash with England to top Pool C.

First-half tries by Virimi Vakatawa and man-of-the-match Alivereti Raka were enough to secure the win for Les Bleus against a spirited Tongan side that competed throughout a tense encounter at the Kumamoto Stadium.

Tonga topped the try-scoring count three-two against a French side that again produced a stop-start performance as they did in their first two games against Argentina and USA.

"We suffered again for yet another match," grumbled French coach Jacques Brunel.

"We started well, we missed a lot of chances to stretch the gap. We missed three or four chances and then we tightened up. There was tension, errors, we cannot manage the second half, especially at the start," added an unhappy Brunel.

In the end, it was three penalties by Romain Ntamack that got France through to a quarter-final likely against either Wales or Australia from Pool D -- although Fiji still have a mathematical chance of a last-eight spot.


France 23

Tries: Vakatawa, Raka

Cons: Ntamack 2

Pens: Ntamack 3

Tonga 21

Tries: Takulua, HIngano, Kapeli

Cons: Takulua 2, Fosita


New Zealand ran in 11 tries as they smashed minnows Namibia 71-9 at the Rugby World Cup on Sunday, putting the defending champions on the brink of a quarter-final place.

The All Blacks did not have everything their own way in the first half, the plucky Namibians holding them within a point after 30 minutes, but New Zealand ran riot in the second period as the underdogs tired.


New Zealand 71

Cons: J Barrett 8
