Kombizz you asked this question before in the other rugby world cup thread and your question was answered there. Please keep the subject on topic.

This is a nightmare (Worse than arriving for my newest teaching assignment and finding my wife as one of my students)!

If boring England win it will set back Rubgy 20 years!

Seems like the Aussies can't even spell the game these days, let alone understand tactics of a knock out tournament

Sorry about the spelling. It must be this ENGLISH dictionary I'm using!

I wonder why they call it world cup where half of the world never play it instead they love to watch football.
I would prefer to take photos.

I often wondered why the called the baseball in the US "The workd series"..??

Yep, that came up in the other thread too. Apparently it was originally sponsored by the World Newspaper or some such explanation.

Anyhoo, Purdy's gonna shout at us if we don't stick to the rugby . . .

I bloody have to work on Saturday so I'll miss the final. I'll be supporting England but in all honesty, the money would be on South Africa. What a game they played against Argentina.

Sorry, I didnt mean to change the Subject.... But isnt that what usually happens?

Oh and can I add.... I think my money would be on S.Africa every time....

But I wouldnt rule out England either, they will need to play out of their skins... And they might want to change their tactics.. I cant see the final being won from penalties and Drop goals.

Agree. Not with Habana on the pitch

So is this Englands last day as world champions? I think SA are the better side, but i have no idea if they will be able to handle the pressure today. If England can play a high pressure, intense game i think we may win, the likes of Burger may give us a few penalties. It won't be pretty, but who cares (except 2 certain rugby nations who will moan that they should be in the final as they play the most entertaining rugby). I still won't have a bet on this one. I think if we give SA an easy first 20 minutes we will lose, but if we rough them up (what am i talking about, how can you rough up Os Du Randt, he's a beast) then who knows. Should be an exciting ride anyway.
