Excellent final and well played Springboks. Just an excellent all round game and some great tries to top it off. That regather and pass from Am :shock: :thumbup:

Not surprised that England didn't play as well last week, they were out of this world and ferocious in the semi, but they were flat tonight and just didn't have the same line speed.

Good for NZ in the sense we beat them in this cup and we'll get to regularly face them and hopefully have some great battles against the World Champs.

These wins are always about so much more than rugby for South Africa. Hopefully Kolisi's grace and class helps unite where needed.

No. He just enjoys Lions Rugby. Playing exciting, then losing the Final.
Finals...don't knock it...its a great experience for those that don't get the opportunity.

Typically Saffer crap...be gracious dudes....you witnessed a very special occasion today.

Jesus Christ, the crowing is unbelievable. Only worse thing than a bad loser is a bad winner.

Well done SA, hard lines England, just not in it today but getting there was a huge achievement.

Just looked through it again and the one thing that stands out is that there were probably more penalties given in this game than the last 3 combined.

Where? Not from Bok fans.

There's definitely crowing on their behalf from neutrals trying to bask in some reflected glory

One of the great Finals, for sure. Amazing performance by the Bokke. Well done.


Why was England so flat? Obviously because they were up against phenomenal opposition. However I have to make the obvious point that the loss of Sinckler was pretty important, not only in and of itself, but I suspect that the incident had an effect on Itoje, who was nowhere near his best.

Anyway, that is part of the glorious uncertainty of sport in general, and ours in particular.


8 out of 9 World Cups won by Southern Hemisphere teams. I think I spot a bit of a trend here.

Makes it a very long post Christmas period for those teams. My own view and I think the decision makers are listening to me is to play it at different times of the year and only announce when a few weeks beforehand

Hard not to feel sympathy for the crushed hopes of English fans, but the best thing about this game was imagining all the pompous and pretentious English journos angrily dumping their post match proclamations about the coming wave of Red Rose generational domination back in the Drafts folder

England head coach Eddie Jones has refused to blame a delay to his side’s bus journey to Yokohama for their lacklustre display in the Rugby World Cup Final.

South Africa beat England 32-12 in the final at Yokohama International Stadium in a game in which England struggled to get a foothold.

The team’s official bus journey to the stadium was delayed by roughly a half an hour late, delaying England’s warm-up.

“The effort of the players was outstanding. We just weren’t good enough today. Congratulations South Africa on an outstanding performance,” Jones said immediately after the match. “Yeah, well we just struggled to get into the game, the effort of the players was outstanding but we just struggled to get on the front foot today.

“I can’t fault the preparation of players who have worked hard the entire World Cup, I think they played with a lot of pride and passion. We just weren’t good enough today and congratulations South Africa on an outstanding performance.”

“Japan’s put on a fantastic World Cup, it’s very well attended, the grounds have been terrific, the organisation’s first class so arigato gozaimasu (thank you very much).”
Did Suzie move to Japan and get a job as a Bus Driver?

It's true, but the 'pro era' qualifier is nitpicky. Aus in 91 knocked out NZ and then won the final.
