Well I wanted England to win but can't complain about the South African victory. Very workman like with a touch of panache for the tries. Hope you enjoy your team's victory Saffa fans!

Had luck England, couldn't quite manage it but got to another world cup final and some of these players could get you to another one in four years.

Did not see that coming, at all.
Sheer bloody minded determination, and a flourish to seal the deal.

Well played Boks congratulations England.
England were just a bit to loose to start and ended up chasing it. Boks showed what they can do in broken play at the end and broke clear.

Amazing! Congrats SA... :thumbup: :thumbup:


Controlled intensity of SA overwhelmed England. The defence was of top quality, England left tryless.

Well done the Springboks. England didn't deserve it, left too much behind on the previous game, but will be better for it and a real threat next RWC, still plenty of class acts there to carry on.

Nice one South Africa.

ITV have 80 minutes post match analysis, they were anticipating a circle jerk with Woodward and Wilkinson. Be fun to watch them be miserable now.

Absolutely terrific Saffers. I reckon that's the best game they've played for a very long time. Very long time.

It had everything, pressure, skills, positive expansive play, dominant set piece and well disciplined. No diving or whinging.

Deserving champions. Well deserved.

They keep talking about the loss of Sinkler. Think he’s great in the loose but would not have altered the scrum in any way.

Well done SA. Brilliant performance.
Eng really shat the bed on and off the pitch, which makes it more painful

Plus a bench with Joseph, meaning we are stuck with Daly shitting the bed and unable to be replaced.

Then losing Sinkler in 1st minute

3 crucial issues, but 2 of them within the coaches remit
Agree, the night the cracks could not be covered up.

Brilliant, well done South Africa. True test rugby, comes down to who's the most physical and who's mentally most up for it, looked like the Boks from the start.

That's harsh. That was a hard tough game right up to the first try.

What a wonderful tournament.
Congratulations to SA, and Japan for being wonderful hosts.

England not your night, but great tournament nonetheless.
