KUMAGAYA, Japan: South Africa head into their final Rugby World Cup warm-up match against hosts Japan on Friday with not only the upcoming tournament on their minds but also the embarrassing loss they suffered the last time the teams met.

"You can definitely see this is a much different team, much more fitter, much more stronger ," South African captain Siya Kolisi said on Thursday. "For both teams this is going to be something new, something different with a whole new coaching staff."Both teams have tasted success this year, with South Africa claiming the Rugby Championship for the first time in a decade while Japan clinched the Pacific Nations Cup with a perfect record and there could be a major clash of styles on show.

Kolisi said his team were aware of that and would instead try and turn the match towards their traditional strengths.
