I will go for South Africa who seem to have a nice balance.

Watching Beauden Barrett play Rugby is like watching Kevin De Bruyne play football, extra class.

England are into their first Rugby World Cup final in 12 years after a brilliant demolition of three-time world champions New Zealand.

Many who understand this game say it was England's finest performance, and get Jones claims they will play better in the final

MAGNIFICENT sportsmen playing at the pinnacle of their game. Football is a shambolic parody of the sport and support of Rugby.
Shocking performance by the ref today but how many of the combatants on the field even raised their voices to him?, contrast that with the nappy wetting diva cheating shitbags that infest football today and are indeed encouraged to be so by their club, coaches and fans for a measly pittance of £200,000 per week.... twats.

It was just a magnificent performance throughout the team they didn't give the all blacks any time on the ball at all and turned them over on numerous occasions. I am worried though that having given it all this week they won't reach the same level again next week whatever Jones says. Farrell had a dead leg and had to give the kicking duties to Ford, Sinckler went off limping and May had his thigh strapped up again. Let's hope a week is enough - just imagine if we ended up losing to the Welsh!!! We'd never hear the end of it.

I have to say that I thought Nigel Owens had a good game as ref. I know he disallowed two tries for us, one of which was correct and the other marginal (TMO Decision) but I thought he managed the players and the game well - as he usually does.

Finest pack performance from 1 to 8 of any British side in the history of the game. The ball skills and mobility added to the usual abilities unsurpassed.

Rugby: A hooligan's game played by gentlemen.

Football: A gentleman's game played by overpaid, selfish conmen.

Not looking good at this stage, England playing right into the hands of the Springboks and the ref.

Second best all game, showed shredded nerves early on and never overcame them as South Africa smelt blood and overran us physically and mentally. Cannot complain, the better team won.

If your struggling up front the requirement is a calm cool head at scrum half.

England's was panic stricken.
