we’re lost. Our scrum is awful, our tactics(?) are terrible, Youngs is useless and Daley isnt a full back.

World rugby should present the trophy to Garces at the end of the game. That stupid prick kills the flow and the game is all about his whistle

He is also not being very consistent at the breakdown.

Underhill has been right as well but England's playmakers are totally absent. Getting beasted up front though

England’s worst half by far all tournament, yet still only down by six.

Deserved half time lead for the Boks. England's turn to be manshamed up front. Interesting.

Springbock hands in every ruck, also they can hold on at will. The opposite for England.

How Garces got the final :lol:

Worst advertisement for rugby.

Rucks are a mess
Scrums a shambles.

This is the most dour final and mainly cause of the ref

My biggest issue with Englands longest penalty advantage in history of the game is SAs earlier was possibly the shortest in history of the game.

Every call he made is correct. England have just been pulled into the SA game and cant get started.
Not one single fucin backline move in 40 minutes.

SA 12-6 England at the half.

SA easily good for that. Dominant except for England's purple patch.

Surprised at that scrum dominance! SA playing harder. England making mistakes under pressure.

Thrilling forward battle what a defensive effort by the Boks this first half. England starting to crack under that immense pressure, it's showing on Eddie's face.

It is, they can just about get a penalty at will now.
If they get a scrum early in the second half they can probably see out the match under the advantage.

Remember conceding a cynical penalty 1 metre from your own try line is in no way a yellow card offense.

They're making bricks without straw.

Get Marler on to shore up the scrums, Mako has done fudge all.

Sinkler's KO didn't help, but I still didn't expect to see England get so comprehensively out-scrummed.

It's encouraging to see a game where a referee isn't intimidated and referees the English properly
