Seems like Eddie’s planning only went up to the semis. 😛

CHAMPIONS: Springboks strike late to win third Rugby World Cup

Wow!
Great stuff from Kolisi there.
Well done Boks! And congrats to the fans! 😁 👍

CHAMPIONS: Springboks strike late to win third Rugby World Cup

Boks need to chance their arm a little bit!
Faf dithers (at the base) while Rome burns!

Underdogs maybe, but the Springboks have what it takes to topple England

The sun came up in the right place the next morning Chook or I really would have been worried.

The Wrap: Do the World Cup semis tell the truth about the final?

Hey Funbus.
Congrats!
The only moment of relief I think I felt in that semi came at your ‘expense’ when Scott Barrett ran down Jonny May and forced him to cut infield! 😂
After that it was all downhill.Your mob delivered a masterclass.

Highlander,
I didn’t have a problem with the SB selection prior to the game though it soon became clear to me that it was an error.
I thought it would pay off in terms of disrupting the England lineout and more grunt with the expected pick and goes i was hoping for.
Neither scenario eventuated of course.
I doubt I have ever been so tense,so intent nor so focused as I was during that game.It was an absolute train-wreck unfolding in front of my eyes.
Today is the first time I have felt brave enough to venture out and see what others are saying about it!
That England were excellent and deserved the win I have no doubt.
The only solace I can dig up is that we weren’t shafted by a dodgy call or anything like that.
Merely outplayed by a better team on the day and I can live with that.
Just.

Fair call Ken.
3 hours away and counting….

Can England dethrone the All Blacks in their World Cup semi-final?

I have taken so long to grow into mine,Wal, I have gotten old in the process.
If only it had gone faster! 😛

Five reasons why Hansen’s Scott Barrett surprise could be a master stroke

Just as long as they aren’t laced with poison too,eh?

100% with the Mo’unga/ Barrett axis PM.No hesitation.
Credit where it is due,I think McKenzie’s success playing in tandem with BB made it easier for Hansen to ultimately move BB to 15 ( something I was keen on pretty much as soon as BB had shown an in inability to stay square on at 10).

The emergence of RM at the Crusaders, was pivotal too.Had he been a Hurricane or Chief,say, he might not have forced the selectors’ hand as he did.
I suspect BB’s less than convincing goal-kicking also played a role.

I view Damian’s untimely injury as a blessing for the team in terms of the world cup.
Incredibly sad for DM though.Imagine him coming off the bench tonight after 60 minutes!

Steve looks like he has packed on the beef to an unhealthy extent lately.

Remember that breakout run Tuilagi had in NZ?Intercept near England goal-line and he hared off down the touchline.Think Ben Smith turned around and ran him down,from memory.Looked sluggish but maybe he was more into swimming in those days?

Not quite so quick when it’s our shout though Ken. 🤢

I think Bridge is better suited to Fullback actually only that pozie is sewn up at the moment.

May is faster than Barrett?

I suspect Nic is playing Devil’s Advocate here Carlos.
He can’t be this fond of England.He’s a Welshman ffs! 😛

At whose expense Nic? I think Confusious said “A sub in the first 20 could cost more at the death.”

Nic,
I read that Eddie only gave people a nano-second to ‘answer’ before carrying on with his spiel.Effectively that was a rhetorical question.

Are you really Welsh Nic?

Biggar will kick 4 drop goals to win it for Wales! 😁

How did you feel about Ireland v ABs Nic as a comparison? 😛

I was at that Wellington game Nick and I can assure you England were very lucky to win it. 😡 😂

Just jumps on the bandwagon every now and then.
