NZ - SA Final should be a burner
Yeah, that’s a champion team for you. 2 games in 2 weeks and win by a point each time.
78 minutes before they took the lead.

Big players stepped up when it was needed.
Tough loss but fair play to the champions :clap:

Well, shoot. Condolences to all the England fans here. Great match, though, and a helluva final weekend coming up.
So much road and so few places, so much friendliness and so little intimacy, so much flavour and so little taste.

Friendship is better than fighting, but fighting is more useful.

Yeah probably the best 2 teams meeting in the final.

All Blacks brilliance against the South African resilience

Well done to England in the third-place match.

As for the final, this fucking ref. That's about all I can say. Feels like I'm watching basketball. Great match, and the officials are doing everything they can to be a big part of it.

And there's their fucking try! Wrote all that about the ref after they'd taken one away on a ticky-tack penalty.

Brutal call there, and yet the All Blacks really put up a fight with just 14. Great final otherwise marred by that red card.
