Boks triumphant

South Africa 15 – England 6 In the end my dream final didn’t live up to expectations. SA looked like they were playing within themselves, content to contest England in an aerial chess match. This is a mark of the quality of the side; unlike the much-fancied New Zealand they were able to adapt their style of play to the circumstances in this tournament. Before the game there was a worry about the Bok’s srummaging, but England’s supposed dominance in this phase never materialised. Perhaps it might have been different if Mark Cueto’s try had been allowed but I felt that SA were playing within themselves and would have been able to step up a gear or two if necessary. In any event I think that there can few arguments that the best side won the tournament.

  1. africa was the better side. England had heart though. plus africa had some very easy penalties.

    percys swan dive into the camera was the highlight of the night! he was on great form . look like some sort of greek god on the pitch!

    That try could have turned it either way! if it was a try 😉

  2. Personally I thought that Toby Flood was lucky not to get sin-binned for that incident!
