        He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

            Mind you don’t embarrass us all by enjoying yourselves! Sack cloth, ashes and a vow of silence would be more appropriate.

                I’d be very surprised if Rassie does ride into the sunset- I think his return home to manage the national team was a personal mission, and it doesn’t end here. He has made/encouraged a lot of long term changes to the structures there, and I don’t think these were done for a short term gain. A final was more than they had a right to dream of when he went back- I think he’s there for a longer haul.

                  Week, very surprised or not, you’re dead right Ustix

                  RTE has ...

                  Rassie Erasmus has announced that he will step down as South Africa head coach after Saturday's World Cup final against England.




                  Erasmus has held the post since early 2018 while also acting as the nation's director of rugby, a role he will continue to perform post Japan 2019.




                  It was speculated that the 47-year-old former Springbok might retain the coaching reins for the Lions tour in two years' time, but current defence coach Jacques Nienaber is likely to be his successor.




                  "For me, it's an emotional one in the sense that I didn't think 25 Test matches will go that quickly," Erasmus said.

                    I don't like to reveal my sources jagaway but to be honest about it, I heard that on RTE too

                      I'll be taking advantage of my qualification by residency to cheer for England. They've been the best side. South Africa are an awful team to watch too, so it would be better to see open rugby rewarded.

                        Likewise- on the other hand- if Rassie manages to stymie the better team and win they will really deserve it. This England team has more power and ways to
                        play, and accuracy in execution, than any other team in the competition. At the same time, if a lesser team wins on the day they will have to have to earned it. (Some
                        embarassing refereeing aside- having a final decided by poor officiating is the last thing the game needs).

At times yesterday it reminded me of Munster vs Saracens in Lansdowne Rd under Rassie. They just have a better pack. I don't think South Africa winning would do anything positive for the game in general as it is based purely on power with players happier to not have possession. Never thought I would type these words but I hope that England win
                          Sacrilege, wash your mouth out with soap and water.
                          I hope SA pulverise them and eddie's head explodes live on tv.

                              Garces ignoring everything that happens at the breakdown will surely play into England’s hands more.

                                That's a bad blow. Dan Cole will hardly last 77 minutes.
