then go on to win the final. Then at least we got knocked out by the champions...
Since when have argentina been so good? I know it doesent take much to beat scotland but they seem to have jumped from being as good as Italy to being brilliant all of a sudden.
though I predict a SA - england final, with england winning. Papers hail it as glorious and say something about them beating new zealand next time round, and this "conquering the southern hemisphere"" or something.
of the tournament for me, for sure. I always thought they were a team that would get rolled over at this game. I was very wrong.
I tend not to read the papers about England's sports teams.
before he returns to being injured in newcastle and is forgotten about until the 6 nations (which france will dominate)
It's just the 6N and SANZAR are so shit scared of them upstaging them, they won't let them play in a permament tournament
with some sarcastic comment?
they've been pretty much brill all tournament
I fucking hate South Africa's team. They play like fucking animals, I don't think I've seen Butch James tackle below the collarbone in his career, yet if they get slighted they will fucking cry and cry about it.
Plus if they go out, it's going to have been a waste of their last chance to win the WC for about 20 years, as the government is going enforce racial quotas on the national team, and given how 75% of the top white players are going to Europe and ergo not available for international selection, and that there's only about 20 black players in the Super 14, SA rugby is heading for a dark age
Habana? He accounts for 10 of their points so far.
i play in his possition, just not as good.
The cheetah obviously won, but he gave it a good lash.
But he is only one player. And he's only a winger. In the SA teams there are no black props, hookers, or second rows. I really hope they don't do it because they'll be shotting themselves in the foot, but apparently it's the reason Jake White is stepping down and why all the top white players have left for Europe.
= game over.
I tell you what, SA have been rubbish in this WC, their opponents have just given them a skinful of oppotunities, they've created nothing themselves
the final's going to be rubbish isn't it. It's just going to 75 minutes of both sides punting it down the field, and then Wilko will shade it 15-14, and it will be THE BEST COMEBACK EVAR.
33-9 for South Africa somewhere here :
I won't be right obviously...
You never know...
I might be very close...
but I had the right winner and the right difference !
Not too bad...
I have rated Greenwood on the commentary so far, but would he shut up about England please?
Yes, they won, in the final and it's a great achievement. Save it for next week please. I want to watch SA Argentina without having a reference to England every sentence.
in the final then.
I'll look forward to it.
Other than Habanas pace and Montgomerys kicking.
i don't think we can play the same game against RSA and win
they look strong, dangerous and determined. England will need to play the game of their life or Johnny will have to kick everything for England to win. Otherwise I can see RSA running in some trys and sneaking it.
Prediction: 15-12 England.
Wilkinson drop-goal in the last minute of added time. Reckon Tate will get a try as well. He should be England's most dangerous back with his pace, just needs to be given it in the right situations.
