    Either way they have a great combination going
    Rassie never intended to be very hands on for us, more a DoR. It was only Axel’s sad passing that meant he had to get more involved. Sort of the same thing happened in SA. He must be the most reluctant world class coach around!

    I'd fancy the All Blacks to beat South Africa if they played next week
    England played an exceptional game to beat the best team but couldn't back it up
    Cup rugby!

    They were reviewed- on the slo mo seemed to me to be flat, and the on field decision was confirmed. Incredibly hard to determine from a 2D image when you don’t know where the overhead shot campers is located. I presume (hope) the video refs have training to avoid errors from this- but for me when the onfield and off field decisions concur, I just reckon they have more information than we do watching TV.

    England fans booed another decision (not off side at the kick ahead) that also reviewed. Thought for a moment not all the Glasgow fans had gone home- but then realised they wouldn’t have disapproved of any injustice (real or otherwise) against England.
    I thought the second pass in build up to first try was marginally forward . I think if instruction was try or no try it would have been rubbed
    But South Africa were always winning that game. Anthony Watson's boneheaded obstruction was the end of England but they were off the pace from kick off. Complete systems failure and scrum in particular plus individual mistakes meant a piss poor final

    Good guess - the two passes leading to try 1 were very, very forward-looking.

    Yep, nor had they scored one in a final to today

    South African shebeens, illegal drinking dens. I saw signs outside my nearest one in Durban saying "no dogs no knives no guns" Generally didn't go inside even if we were gasping for a drink!
    But it didn't say no Irish

    I was not sure who I would be shouting for until the game started but realised my heart was for South Africa. The money bags in English Rugby and also French rugby will kill the game if they are let, not to mention English superiority and the nasty rhetoric against Ireland through the Brexit period.

    I also visited South Africa for the first time this year for work and the welcome and the hospitality from all ethnicities and tribes was quite incredible. Also that South African teams play in the same leagues and obviously the Munster connection meant supporting a NH team over a SH team went out the window. Really thrilled for them.
