England v South Africa RWC Final.
« on: October 27, 2019, 11:05:52 AM »
Firstly I'm delighted that Wales lost for two reasons....1) because I've always found them quite arrogant winners...2) but mainly because I would much rather face South Africa in the final as Wales can actually play rugby.... They would have been a big threat to us.

So now we know it is England v South Africa. I would say England have a complete rugby team at the moment with the ability to play any style of play within any part of the pitch.

South Africa didn't look like they wanted to play rugby today and I think there is a simple reason for that. They are not actually very good. Their whole game is based around rather aimless kicking to try and achieve field position in the opposition 22.

Whilst you can never be certain of a final in any sport...
I think objectively England should be looking to win comfortably. Kiss of death!!!

Brb I thought you were a friend. To say that Wales is arrogant is wide of the mark.
Congratulations England and best wishes on Saturday. There I’ve said it🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

I've just been pondering this England team...is there any of the starting 15 who won't be around at the next RWC? I don't think so...
