Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus said the “X-factor” Cobus Reinach was a chip off the old block as the Springbok scrumhalf scored the quickest World Cup hat-trick in a 66-7 rout of Canada in Kobe on Tuesday.
Reinach, son of late South Africa wing Jaco Reinach, took just 11 minutes to score three tries in a first half where the two time world champion Springboks scored seven of their 10 in the match.
Reinach, whose treble was faster than Australia fullback Chris Latham’s 25-minute hat-trick against Namibia at the 2003 World Cup, is widely regarded as the third choice scrumhalf in the Springboks’ squad behind Faf de Klerk and Herschel Jantjies.
