Congrats to SA. A deserved win.

Actually NZ is still Ranked ahead of england in the world rugby Rankings so there fore going on that eddie you are not the second best team in world rugby.

That’s interesting, you’d think the runner up would have enough points to take 2nd ranking.

Interesting tournament though - New Zealand over South Africa, England over New Zealand, and South Africa over England.

It’s just a World Cup. Nice to win it, but no big drama if you don’t. These were probably the 3 best teams in the world, and on their day each of them showed they can win big matches. England’s performance over New Zealand was probably the standout performance of the tournament. South Africa did well yesterday, but England helped them a lot with loose nervous errors. And perhaps their game plan was too optimized around winning the semi-final against New Zealand.

Unfortunately for England they played the same game the ABs played against them!

The Springboks defense was very solid for sure but seemed like England was maybe firing at 65% with a few spikes at 80% but then dropped right back down again.

If it wasn't to SA penalties they wouldn't have gotten a point!

And the english petulant brats who didnt want to be graceful in defeat and accept their medals pffft, shows the typical english mentality, their birth right thinking.

Congratulations South Africa well Done. Great Result on the Day !
