I was working but alot of customer's reliably informed me the second half was fantastic.


It looked like a different team England had out today. Second-half particularly they looked unbeatable. From the first whistle, they were throwing the ball about and attacking at pace. In my view, the only weakness was some of the box kicking which just ended up kicking possession away. but that is a minor criticism given that our defence was so good. Shame the game against the All Blacks isn't the final. Definitely the two best teams in the tournament.

Agreed John...should be cracker with the winner going on to win it. Although i'm sure the Welsh will have the same belief.

Unbeatable???? Really?
Aussies were poor despite a decent start. The test will be against a decent side (which hasn't happened yet).
An easy group to win. England didn't have to shift through the gears.
I thought the Aussies would've provide a tougher test but I cant take anything away from England, clinical, got the job done.

I'm sure the Boks would have something to say about that! Japan have been excellent all tournament but unfortunately there's no squad depth and there's a lot of players whom have played every game!
My final would be All Blacks V Boks

The disallowing of the second England try (by VAR) was the most ridiculous decision in the history of rugby.

The icing on the cake for me was in the last 2 minutes when the All Blacks were throwing the ball about looking for a break-through and they ended up 40 yards back from where they started.

Thought the same John. This type of use of cameras is making a farce of games.

Well done England, massive team performance and we’ll deserved win.

Unlucky Wales but I would rather play South Africa than them if I’m honest.
