        The good people of bonymaen RFC were very sympathetic to their English neighbours, it seems.

          And AFAIK they have never conceded a try in any of the 3 finals right or wrong ?

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

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

                    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

                        I always felt that Nienaber had a bigger impact on our team on the field than Rassie did, he brought more to the off field.

                        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'm not one for getting pics with players or managers, in fact I've never gotten one, but kind of regret not asking rassie when I had opportunity once in thomond.

                              Marginally forward is a hard call to make if you have only a tv at home at your disposal- but I take the point about try no try. Disagree it was poor final- thought it was fascinating until the last 5 mins.

                                He seems to be more interested in delegating alright, trusting his players and coaches to look after their own role, as opposed to the control freak that is joe smidth
