Third-string scrumhalf Cobus Reinach scored a hat-trick of tries in 11 minutes as South Africa celebrated their 500th test by storming into the Rugby World Cup quarterfinals with a 66-7 victory over Canada Tuesday. The Springboks ran in six tries in the first half hour at Kobe Misaki Stadium, and Canada's woes deepened a couple of minutes before halftime when replacement lock Josh Larsen was shown a red card for an illegal shoulder charge at a ruck.To their credit, they came out looking much more assured in the second half despite their numerical disadvantage, and after a succession of penalties won, some poor defense from Jantjies allowed Heaton to score his first international try.It should have been his second after he had dropped the ball over the tryline in Canada's defeat to Italy earlier in the competition.
