Keep up at the back of the class, the Wannabies are always being whipped by England.

All I need now is a Springbok win over the Principality.

:-k
Aren't they playing the Final on the WRONG DAY ???

Having watched several interviews on news progs over the last few days I feel that the England team would have had a much better chance if the game had been played at Halloween where most of them would have felt completely at home :freak: :yikes:

Maybe it has something to do with Britain and the European Union, Bretix, and so on.

Best team "won" FFS Just shows how many Chang's were consumed this morning. Said before, tough game but the Boks well worth their win. So glad we don't have to listen to the "gushing praise" from the English Commentators and Media if the English had won. So many people think all Scots, Welsh and Irish support for anyone who plays against England is hatred. No its not, we just hate the English Media and their outpourings of shear crap. Hope the upside down world can come to grips with being 3rd and 5th.

Brilliant tactics by the South African Coach. He did his homework well. You could see it in the way the Safa's tackled the English big men players and the speed off their line. As for Eddie Jones, well Eddie, you will just have to eat a lot of that sh...t that you peddled in this last week.

Or perhaps you are wrong when you think all scots welsh and irish support the opposition . I am welsh and wales first any uk team second and most of my mates the same . I wanted england to win as i am british.
Absolutely wrong tactics . England have not been a good rugby team for years as they rely on muscle over skill . When the run out on the pitch looks like a group of body builders . forwards absolutely crap except for otoje . only have 3 rugby players who can score a try . anthony watson , johnny may and ben youngs who never had a chance as england tried the whole game to drive through and outmuscle the SA forwards but could not do so as the african forwards are hard but can also play rugby .After 20 minutes they should have got quick ball wide all the time and after half time i thought they would come out with an expansive game , but no , more the same . Up the middle

Unfortunately in any final there will be a winning side and a losing side. The thing is to lose gracefully. Apparently some of the English forwards couldn't.

At least most Englishmen wait till their p*ssed before giving a rendition of "swing low" ......... every time you get two Welsh guys and a dog meet on a street corner they have to form into a male voice choir and give a rendition of "Bread of Heaven" or that well known classic

And we were singing
Hymns and Arias
Land of my fathers
And 'arry 'ad an 'orse

never been able to find out who Harry was, or what he did with his horse :-k :lol:

what you never seen steptoe and son
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRGq7ranxTw
Drivers name is harold and thats his horse
Ar hyd y nos , all through the night
HYMNS AND ARIAS
Max Boyce


We paid our weekly shilling for that January trip:
A long weekend in London, aye, without a bit of kip.
There's a seat reserved for beer by the boys from Abercarn:
There's beer, pontoon, crisps and fags and a croakin 'Calon Lan'.

And we were singing hymns and arias,
'Land of my Fathers', 'Ar hyd y nos'.

Into Paddington we did roll with an empty crate of ale.
Will had lost at cards and now his Western Mail's for sale.
But Will is very happy though his money all has gone:
He swapped five photos of his wife for one of Barry John.

And we were....................

We got to Twickers early and were jostled in the crowd;
Planted leeks and dragons, looked for toilets all around.
So many there we couldn't budge -twisted legs and pale:
I'm ashamed we used a bottle that once held bitter ale.

And we were singing hymns and arias,
'Land of my Fathers', 'Ar hyd y nos'.

Wales defeated England in a fast and open game.
We sang 'Cwm Rhondda' and 'Delilah',
damn, they sounded both the same.
We sympathised with an Englishman
whose team was doomed to fail
So we gave him that old bottle, that once held bitter ale!

He started singing hymns and arias,
'Land of my Fathers', 'Ar hyd y nos'.

So it's down to Soho for the night,
to the girls with the shiny beads;
To the funny men with lipstick on,
with evil minds and deeds.
One said to Will from a doorway dark,
damn, she didn't have much on.
But Will knew what she wanted,
aye...his photo of Barry John!

'Cos she was singing hymns and arias,
'Land of my Fathers', 'Ar hyd y nos'.

Ah the upside down world. We call it the Southern Hemisphere.
It is actually 1st, 3rd and maybe 5th on %.
As much as the northern hemisphere tries to gain a foothold the complete domination by the Southern Hemisphere teams continue to thwart any attempt. I’ll admit we have allowed the north to reach the finals.
In saying that the wannabies have a long road ahead to reach any semblance of looking like a winning team. They will do it without my continued lack of support until they get rid of the kiwi netball boss. She’s a shocker.
Well done the boks. They played the consummate underdog role well.

we have lost many a game of World Cup cricket, America' s Cup, and All Blacks games, not to let a little off game against England get us down mate. We are more miffed at our coach leaving our best players in the shed, or on the bench, than with anything else..we love our game but we dont go overboard if we loose..

Barney I think Raylleen is head of Rubgy Australia, not Nz netball
and I think Aussie's problem lie between the lack of co operation between your Super 15 clubs, and Rugby Australia.get that sorted and you go foward
