Some performance from SA, I honestly thought the scores would be the other way around! The tries were phenomenal, great that they could win with those brilliant plays.

England never really got going, their backs were particularly bad with Youngs and Daly having complete nightmares.

Yes Youngs was very poor, Daly is a weak point and exposed today.

How can we get to the end of a World Cup final that South Africa just won and Daire O'Brien thinks their captain is called "Kolosi"?

The tap peno was England's last chance to turn it around.
Daly has had a poor tournament.

Owen Farrell needs to be put out to pasture a spent force at this level and at his age will only get worse, time waits for no one. He also has to much control on that team and it’s all negative. (Tongue in Cheek)

The Vunipolo one is particularly bad! There are two of them and they've been around for years and played in big games year after year, how can people not know?!

From a selfish Leinster/Irish point of view (which I always have), it would’ve been better for us to have all those England & Sarries players coming home in party mode, fat and happy and ready to be picked off

I can see Owen Farrell being favorite to captain the Lions 2021, he’s some leader for someone who’s only just turned 28

Thank goodness it's over - I agree !! And we didn't do too badly, they only broke Conan.

Cronin I believe is nothing serious so it hasn't taken too heavy a toll.

Back to 5 Star hunting......

I think we should be starting R Kelleher for the European cup games to develop him for 2023, he’s very good

Serious potential all right but for me Cronin starts if fit, no question, he has always delivered but good complaints to have - question for the powers that be is Kelleher or Tracey on the bench and Kelleher looks to be winning that one.

Good problems and you need two good hookers for 80 minutes now so it's all positive.

Quite honestly only interested in 5 stars - another World Cup can wait for a while !! After the anti climax in Japan which we all feared it's back to supporting the boys in blue for a while - single vision !!

Enjoyed this mornings game, despite Toland doing his best to ruin it by never shutting up. Shows how difficult it is to call games like these.

My god Youngs cost that team a few hundred meters with ball in hand. Every player had to check their run or catch behind them.

Lose the collisions, lose the game most of the time. England play a style dependent on winning collisions (similar to ours, although different..). The only top team who can win while losing collisions are probably New Zealand, although the England semi-final showed it doesn't always work out. The game has somewhat moved away from its size obsession over the last decade, I guess today's result is a reminder that size does sometimes matter (as well as accuracy and set-piece functionality)...
