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.

What a performance by SA. Terrific defence. :thumbup:

Didn't expect England to get so badly beaten.

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

Congrats, bokke. Thought it might have been 7 points either way, but that was a monstering!

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.

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.
:lol: That is a grim prospect

Well done Springbok fans and hard luck England fans. Those two tries in the final quarter of the match really opened the match a bit. Great effort by the Springboks to come back from losing their pool match to NZ, regroup and go on to win the RWC :thumbup:

How flat were England! All fuckin game. We knew what was coming but still didn’t have any answers. This shows, once again that a big pack and a blitz defence is the way to go

Shame the English never got going - having a decent scrumhalf would have helped.

Sad that they had their best performance in the semi-final. Slightly less sad for arrogant Eddie.

Not a bit.

They had the power, and they had the set piece. They also had the tactics to negate/frustrate England's rush defence, and du toit did a fantastic job in the role he was given. MoM for me.
