Rugby World Cup briefing

England rugby players during a pre-match huddle

Much has been made of Eddie Jones' involvement with them in 2007, when they defeated England in the final, and how the Springboks are following the same defensive template they had then.

The result left English fans at Portsmouth Rugby Club, in Hilsea, crushed. "We are proud to host Rugby World Cup and we will continue to form a tight scrum for the future".

"I think the players prepared tremendously well for this World Cup and played with a lot of pride, passion and we got caught short today".

"We can only control our relationship with him and we can only control what we will wrap around him to enable us to perform at our best". "We will give them a hell of a game when they come to South Africa". I genuinely thought this was our year.

The Springboks' victory was constructed on a colossal efficiency by their powerhouse pack that allowed fly-half Handre Pollard to kick six penalties earlier than Makazole Mapimpi's 66th-minute strive - the primary the Springboks had scored in a World Cup last.

"We can achieve anything if we work together as one", said Kolisi, who previous year became the first black player appointed as Springboks captain.


He has already sent a good luck message to England head coach Eddie Jones's team - and included a photo of Archie in a Red Rose jersey. "I have never seen people come together over sport [like that]". It just wasn't our day'.

She received it at World Rugby's annual awards night in Tokyo, winning from a shortlist that also included fellow England internationals Katy Daley-McLean and Sarah Bern, New Zealand's Kendra Cocksedge and France's Pauline Bourdon.

Kolisi, who is South Africa's first-ever black captain, says the triumph will bring the nation together. This is bigger because it is a transformed team, 58 million people watching in South Africa yesterday morning, and all races would have woken up wearing green, which wouldn't have happened in my time.

"It's going to be insane traveling through South Africa and I hope they do that - take the trophy to the people".

Mike van Schalkwyk watched the match in Horndean and was "ecstatic" with the win adding England was "gracious in defeat".

"We are also united by a shared desire for a country where all can live in peace and comfort, where all have an equal chance to achieve their potential". Indeed, it was the All Blacks who inflicted a ten-point defeat on South Africa in Yokohama in their opening match of the campaign back in late September.
