Watching it for the second time now is SO much more relaxing. Haven't come down from the high yet. Boks were simply fantastic. A few players had their best game in a Bok jersey and what a time to do it. Then some old heads were massive again, Duane in particular. Kolisi, what a game and what leadership, thank you!

Can't even rate these players because they all deserve the accolades today, well done Bokke! It's the best all-round performance we've seen in a while. Pack manshamed them. Backs were impossible to crack and turned on the attack when needed with two fantastic tries and certainly a different approach to this game compared to Japan and especially the Wales game. First final SA have scored a try in. :thumbup:

Rassie - what a rise in such a short time for Bok rugby. From obscurity to #1 in the world and RWC champs in under two years. Fantastic stuff.

Nienabar :thumbup:

Duane and Siya finally put in that performance we have been waiting for the entire RWC, when it mattered most. PSdT was just outstanding. Handre klarse.

Watched with a whole bunch of friend group, after the whistle the kids were running around excitedly, but it was us adults who can remember older days who shed a tear when Rassie and Siya were in conversation before the trophy presentation. Siya wanted Rassie to lift the cup with him, but Rassie refused and told Siya it is his moment. Lovely moment.

I am so happy for Duane. What a warrior. Beast too.

Just a great group of 31 guys, guided by an excellent coach and bonded by their incredible faith to each other, and to God.

It is a unique group of players, no egos, strong leadership. Most importantly they created a positive and humble vibe especially throughout the last months leading up to the RWC, culminating in the win today. Massive team effort, and hats off to Rassie. That was his masterplan. Chapeau. Well done Bokke, you made us all proud!

Yes, saw that. Emotional stuff.

Am had his best game in the 13 jersey as well. Mapimpi at his usual finishing best but was also very good on defense. Kolbe just magnificent with ball in hand but defends well above his bodyweight as well. So many good things. And you're right, Nienaber a defensive genius and the players executed perfectly.

Credit to back of house team, lot of management, doctors, physios etc been involved for a long time and deserve it.
Particularly Charles the manager and likely Viva the physio who will retire post World Cup.

Despite the score line, still so many close/important moments in the match. At 15-9 when Pollard slips and give the penalty away...Farrell missing that kick was crucial in terms of momentum.

Then after that, just before the fantastic Mapimpi try. I was still busy yelling at Willie for kicking the ball away right outside the ENG 22 when we were looking good on attack. Eng start putting a couple phases together and we get a crucial turnover in the next play with Am/Mapimpi combining beautifully for the try. Just two of many big moments.

So proud of our boys.
Shame that so many neutrals just want to belittle and shit over our achievement...
Suddenly England are shit.
England had a tougher semi, couldn't recover (after an entire extra test day)

I shouldn't care, but I guess I'm not mature enough to not get a bit pissed off.

SA didn’t allow England to play well today.
Rassie pulled a mater stroke by saying the Boks wouldn’t change tactics.
SA mixed up the tactics all day and kept England guessing.
This created a bit of space out wide.

Two fantastic tries worthy of champions.

That Farrell miss was indeed crucial. We had just given away two penalties and allowed England back into the game. After the miss we took control again and maintained the momentum until the end.

Yupp

And just getting to the Willie kick now. Happened right at the 65 min mark. ENG luckily box kicked it back to us and we countered with a fantastic try. That sealed it with the Kolbe brilliance just putting the final nails in.

It’s amazing we won both semi and final with Willie playing like a drunken mule

Willie at least looked half sober today. A couple screw ups that cost attacking momentum but overall, his best match of the tournament. Not that the bar was set high earlier though tbh.

Faf got better and better and was fantastic today.

You did to us what we normally do to others. A big pack and a blitz defence is certainly the way to go for both SA and England, though SA don’t have to kick quite so much. You’ve some fantastic backs, why not use them a bit more.

And I'm happy to discuss the players and game here now that emotions are starting to subside. :thumbup:

Yes, it's basically what you did to NZ as well. Our aggression, execution, etc. was just spot on today...like yours was against them.

So proud. So, so proud.

A simply magnificent performance from everyone today. It just means so much. It's been an emotional few hours. I'd give anything to be in a bar in Joburg celebrating, but then again we've got bragging rights for the next few years.

Every Bok player really stood up today, even Willie catched the high balls. Didn't Mostert made the most tackles, although he only played 55min?! What an effort from everyone!

We're always accused of dumb rugby but between Suzie, getting Cueto's try disallowed and manipulating the Japan / Ireland result, I'm genuinely proud of how connivingly smart we can be.

One of the silver linings to a horrible black cloud for England has been the story of the Boks journey, indeed it may have given them the X factor they certainly had. We all remember the iconic picture of Madiba with Pienaar, but I haven't seen a similar iconic photo as yet. Is there a picture that is 'the one'?
