We should try a few forward passes as a tactic, apparently you can do that now

f**king Youngs.

Have no idea why England have only had Tuilagi touch the ball 4 or 5 times.

1st half set piece was a disaster and lost it.
Ford and Youngs kicked too much.

Four finals, one win. Chokers supreme.

Oh, and another fine pass from Youngs. Looks right at Kolbe and releases it. Thank fudge he can't pass to anyone with any accuracy.

At least it has shut Dallaglios one-eyed commentary up.

As I said, all of England's weaknesses being exposed here, Mako's poor scrumming, Daly's complete lack of fullback play, Farrell offering nothing in attack, England headless at times, basic mistakes.

the same old story of teams playing there final against NZ and cant get to the same intensity again. That's why the AB's are so great. They been doing just that for decades

Not with the pattern of the game so far. We'd need another half hour, during which SA would probably also get some points.

You need 2 tries. You have a pen advantage. You take a quick tap rather than roll the divs and come back for the kick to the corner.

They are. That’s why they have scrums.

SA have always given England huge trouble. We can't manhandle their pack and they kick as well as us.

Long way back now. England played their final last weekend by the looks of things
Even without that, this has been a brutally physical game by SA. No guarantee that even a fresh England could have played better.

Youngs seriously lucky that Kolbe dropped that.
Some of the English big men look like they’re only at 90%
Youngs is the main weak link for me.

Agree like you’d never be safe with 10min against the all blacks but the English look a bit tired
