Sorry , just joking. Thought that as they didn't get the result they wanted they would have gone to court to get a re-run !

Great win for England , Ireland not looking good , definitely cheering Wales on tomorrow.

Hoping Japan do well .

I hope Wales get through.

England is coached by an Aussie. While his record with the Wallabies was mixed, he had to follow in the very big boots of Rod McQueen who had an 80% win in tests.
Watching Jones coach was like watching Campese play it was going to be either brilliant or a fail. There seemed to be no in-betweens.
He coached the Wallabies to runners up in 2003 in the World Cup, one Tri-Nations series and three runners up, the Cook Cup and most importantly two Bledisloe Cup wins.

Jones is the master of upsets and yesterday proved that once again with an outstanding victory over the AB's. His victory against the Wallabies not so much as they were never in the hunt. Sadly with the state of administration in rugby union here, they will stay as a second rate team until they go back to concentrating on rugby.

Will England win it? Who knows but the way they're playing and with the master of upsets coaching them, I think they'll be really hard to stop.

It was a good close game and stats were very close and someone has to win eventually. I'm not a betting man but my money would be on the Pommies (the old enemy).
I think it will be one hell of a final but before that, the game between the Kiwi's and the Taffy's will be very interesting. The All Blacks history shows they bounce back with a vengeance.

Also, Aussie netball won it's seventh Constellation Cup in a row on the weekend. That's the three series between Australian and NZ every year. Since it's inception in 2010 the Kiwi's have only won it once. It's our form of payback because we can't play rugby anymore.

Congratulations to the Springboks , the best team won.

Also , Japan deserve a lot of credit for staging a first class tournament in difficult circumstances.

Well done the Springboks! It was a good game - and South Africa deserved to win. They were obviously the better side. I think England peaked against the All Blacks!
