    LONG RANGE ARTILLERY!

    That’s inside the 22.

    Holy flaps!

    Gwlad forum is suggesting 1/2p will be retiring, sad if true, top quality player.

    Absolutely, but if he is continually getting concussed it is for the best. The older of us will recall that is what caused Billy Beaumont to retire.

    Look again – it’s inside the half – not the 22.

    He could probably kick 70m on the high veldt but not at sea level.

    Yep, you’re right.

    Still a beast of a kick.

    Right, as a Scotsman…C’mon England. With the condition attached that Farrell tries one of his running in and shoving forwards episodes and is in all the pics with missing front teeth. (Can you at least allow me that?) Folk are suggesting it will be a dull game, but I think there are so many interesting sub plots it will be anything but.

    I’m up and off to fetch some mates. Even my dad is coming round to watch the game up in my man pub/cave/shed. Good luck England!

    These are the two traditionally dullest sides in the world. Credit to England, the SF against NZ was superb, but this is the WC final so I’m expecting a borefest. Hope I’m wrong, would love to see England play like they did last week, but I have a feeling SA will kill any attempt at anything exciting.

    And Wales are traditionally an exciting side…..

    England will not want to be drawn into an arm wrestle.

    Wales have a tradition of never making it to WC finals. SA have a tradition of getting there by playing really boring rugby. England are just plain boring most of the time. Not sure what went wrong last week, maybe alien abduction or something.

    It’s not about excitement
    It’s not about a try fest
    It’s about doing whatever it takes to win, even if it’s a drop goal to win 3-0

    I’ll take a boring game with no tries if it means England win

    SA might try to win by slowing the game down and kicking a few long range penalties, but when was the last time you saw England play boring rugby? It’s not been their style for a long time! England either win with flair, or lose trying to play with flair but make too many mistakes. When it pays off they’re the best team in the world, when it doesn’t they let Scotland score 20 odd unmatched points!

    This is arguably the best England side that there has been when they’re on form, and to say they have been on form so far this RWC is an understatement! I just hope there’s one more game in this run of form, because it would be bloody awful if it ended right now!

    My prediction is England victory inside normal time by 6-10 points. It’ll be closer than Aus and NZ games, but I predict an early Tuilagi try, and you can bet your bottom dollar that whether he needs to or not, Owen Farrell will have a pop at a drop goal at some point!

    Houns knows…..

    Super excited now !

    As an aside , has anyone got an idea as to  which team the Japs will cheer on ?

    At least 50% of the stadium crowd will be home fans , and having that support will defo lift the side being cheered….

    If it’s a boring game S.A. will win.

    England seem to score a fair few tries these days…didn’t realise that was classed as boring! 😂

    Lee Calvert doing the Guardian text updates.

    South Africa’s anthem is in three languages and speaks of their love of their land and people. England’s is about a rich woman. SA win that round.

    Good start by S.A. They’re attacking pretty well today…much more than they did against Wales.
