I, and many here, have called it since Eddie made the move. It wasn't a disaster waiting to happen, it was frequently costing England. You can't win a World Cup with no 15 who is a novice and lacks basic catch skills, especially against a team who was alwaus going to kick, kick, kick!

Poor Skinny - I knew there was something missing from this final.

Apart from running rugby, some back moves and perhaps a try.
This is the game SA have been playing for nearly two years. They’ve become very good at it.
I've seen Kolbe run and score some nice tries. It can be done.
I knew it could be done :thumbup:

Shut up, Dallaglio, Sinckler was a loss but he wasn't the reason we lost.

Like I said earlier England already lost twice to this style of play this year. Boks just have more weapons in their locker than Wales.

Eddie Jones still not quite as magical as he thinks he is

Good shit Boks!

Before the semis I put $50 on England to beat the ABs and another 50 on SA to win the cup. Soothes the pain a bit.

SA did to us what we did to NZ. Owned us in every area including scoring tries.

Well done our boys for getting a silver medal - better than I think any of us expected at the start of the tournament.
