A very very well done to the boys and yes if that try was gone our way then it could\'ve been a different result.  They played most of the running rugby but in the end south african defence was too good to break.  Much better score then 36-0 naaa?? in the end:yes They won by just getting to the finals.  Who would\'ve thougt that? 2 weeks ago so well done England again.

Well done South Africa
They have been the most consistant team throughout the WC and did the job. Wasnt pretty but still beat england thats all that matters and now the webb ellis trophy is back where it belongs "in the southern hemisphere".

the balance has been restored!

p.s the oldone says 2nd is the 1st loser !!!!!!!

Well done South Africa. They killed us in the lineout.

South Africa are champions, but Argentina will be my team of the tournament.

Who knocked the Aussies out again ???? i forget right now :Tongue1 :Tongue1 :Tongue1

Seriously though dont follow rugby but watched the entire game and England really never looked like beating SA who were just too strong this time round, but so very well done for getting to the final again with a team just bunched together, getting through the group stage was a bonus and getting to the final magnificent !!!! WELL DONE BOYS !!! :Party :Party :Party

Still think someone somewhere could have dived to get a penatly ???? whoops wrong game :eek:

have you heard the quote "rugby players play pretending not to be injured where football players play pretending to be injured"

in a rugby game they all want to work there hardest and get stuck in where in football they look for a opportunity to fall over like a girl and pretend to be injured.

that just shows the difference in mentality between football and rugby players, i myself do like football but in terms of how hard they work and the injuries they are likely to get rugby players should be paid alot more than footbal players.

Feel gutted for the boys, but at least they got to the finals. SA did look the stronger team all the way.

Well done SA.

Aye - south africa def deserved the win - but England did really well to get there. What i especially liked was for the last 25 mins or so the backline was full of the kids and they were all desperate to play - hopefully should bode well for 4 years time.
