Japan lock's RWC over after his knee was horrifically twisted at a ruck
Justin Ives is escorted from the pitch.
Japanese lock Justin Ives World Cup dreams were ended after a very awkward contact at a ruck in his country's warm-up game against a World XV.
The New Zealand born lock and sometime flanker was rolled to side by Ben Tapuai before an an ingoing player - Andrew Hore - lands heavily on an already severely twisted. The injury looks not unlike Jean de Villiers knee incident last year in Cardiff, and makes for grim viewing.
