Absolutely impressive from the Eglish team. Outplayed the ABs in every single aspect and in nearly every phase. Barely a mistake.

NZ were quiet today, England could well be quiet next week.
If they can repeat tonight's performance next week they will romp home.

My pick at the start of the tournie was for an England v South Africa final.

Eddie Jones has been one of the world's best coaches for many many years.

Now with the horses, they were well drilled & always with good tactics & patterns. Played with a lot of heart & skill as well.

NZ were poor, particularly in the first half, but the story is the excellent play from England.

Again, Itoje MoM.

All Blacks were flustered with the English line speed. Didn't fire a shot.

England superior across the park.

Very well done England! The points difference doesn’t reflect the difference in how effective each team was. The ABs were outplayed in just about every respect.

That is the greatest English performance in a RWC, better than anything in 03.

That’s what it took to beat this AB team.

That reminded me of the end of the ERC final against Saracens.

Really clinical and suffocating in defence.

Well done England

Really impressive.

Happy with that. Not only a win, but more convincing than the scoreline suggests. I did not see that coming at all.


Hope that wasn't our final. It would be devastating to underperform in the final after that.

No need for taunts. NZ are a superb team that lost to another superb team that just played better on the day.

Fantastic performance by England.
Itoje absolutely awesome.

Really crazy game plan by ABs.
Watched Aus fail after just throwing the ball around without trying to make ground up the middle.

So we repeated a losing plan.

Cheers AC. No mocking here.

The highest praise I can give my team is that they reduced a fine fine All Black side to desperation
Cheers AC
England had to bring their A game today to beat NZ, luckily for me they did
England forwards just better than you today , you had no answer to the machine that is curry underhill itoje

Just shows the best way to beat NZ is to get stuck in and not give them any undue respect - Read was pretty anonymous today for example

Fantastic performance from England. Liked like it was going to be one of the best games of the tournament early on but England just smothered them completely. NZ didn't have an answer

I'm pretty sure England will beat SA by some margin.
SA look very limited.
