    Don't be silly, he's just been warming up so far. The highest scoring player in the RWC history always comes good.

    Sure, but our Percy Montgomery is the the highest scorer in THIS world cup. Not this time. It is coming home.

    True, but nobody hits a drop-goal like Johnny :-D . I think Habana and DuPreez are going to be the biggest threats, if we can stay strong at the back and keep the penalty's down there won't be any points for Montgomery to take. Should be a great game though, good luck.

    --------

    And I look forward to reading your humble post on sunday regarding England's brilliance in winning the world cup again.

    And remember that second is only the first loser

    Seriously, it was a good game - not pretty but the rugby world cup final seldom is.
    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.

    Warning, very humble post.

    Congratulations to South Africa for winning the rugby world cup. You deserved to win it, the best team of the tournament and the best team on the night. Well done.

    Yes, we did it! But England came close a few times. Well done to them. They came back very strongly after the 36:0 defeat. Great game!

    It was definitely a good match, but I'd say South Africa was the better team this time round. Although England gave away a few too many fouls for SA to exploit, they both played well. Quite a rough match, but both teams should be proud of themselves.
