This is the day the Rugby World Cup final.

This is the day every four years I get most excited about.

England got here by demolishing the All Blacks in a way that I have never seen done before.

The Springboks got here by playing ten-man rugby. Or you could say nine-man rugby, by the way Faf de Klerk box-kicked.

Now onto my predictions, this is my sypnosis of what I think will happen.

1. The Springboks will open the scoring with an early penalty goal.
2. England and the Springboks will exchange penalty goals to make it 6-6.
3. England will score the one try (scored by Anthony Watson) within the last ten minutes of the first half.
4. England will blow the game open in the second half to score three converted tries.
5. The Springboks will score a late consolation try.
6. There will be no cards.
7. The final score will be 34-13 to England.
8. Man of the match will be Sam Underhill as he owns the breakdown.

That is the way I see the World Cup unfolding.

All the planning that England has done for this Rugby World Cup has been as meticulous as it was for the Cricket World Cup.
