SA looking more like the Springboks of old but England are too good just now. A fearful combination of strength, speed and ball handling skills.

 

The All Blacks had a comparatively poor winter upside down yet they still saw off SA in the first match and mollicated Ireland . Well beaten today.

 

Strangely, I think SA will beat Wales but Wales would have a better chance than SA of beating England.

 

Don’t ask me to justify. I haven’t a clue really.

Yes i was thinking same about an all UK final being more difficult to predict. I'll say it quietly but it would be good for Northern Hemisphere rugby if England do win.

The problem for England is going to be the pressure of reproducing the form against New Zealand, when the tactical requirement will be so very different. Much as I'd like to, I can't see the English forwards dominating the Boks like they did the All Blacks. I expect a war of attrition in the finest Springbok traditions. 1995 revisited?
