- Rugby World Cup Thread 2019
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.Posted 2 months agohols2Member
Not expecting a dull game, thats not how England play.
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.Posted 2 months agohols2Member
And Wales are traditionally an exciting side…..
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.Posted 2 months agomboyMember

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!Posted 2 months ago
