    Thanks, I was playing friendly with a bit of cheeky banter. Enjoy watching it.

    I sure did like the result :clap

    My concern is, do England have another outstanding game in them ? They were magnificent against The Convicts and out of this world against the AB so DO they have another superlative game in them ? Let's face it, England DO have form in this area...if the RIGHT England turn up, they will win but if not....who knows.

    You have your answer.

    South Africa had the big game in them when it counted.

    Personally I'm pleased they won the game and the cup.

    By all accounts Japan put on a good show as host, as already mentioned earlier in this thread by others played outstanding rugby.

    Yup. As I suspected and feared, it was one game too many. I knew within 5 minutes England were't going to win.

    Well done the Boks.
    Perhaps not the most interesting of games to watch but SA had a plan which worked.
    It was also played in great spirit.
    Proud of England and desperately sorry for Kyle Sinckler.
