It could be a different story this time- we shall see.
Either way, Sth Africa or England will equal us so not overly fussed who wins, but will probably root for SA due to Southern Hemisphere factor.

My tip: 22-21
SA - 1 try, one conversion, 1 drop goal and 4 pens
Eng - 2 tries, one conversion, 3 pens

Well done South Africa, you did to us, what we did to N.Z. You didn't let us play. Classy speeches by both captains after the game. :(

Southern Hemisphere cups - 8
Northern Hemisphere - 1

Such domination, no wonder England needed an Aussie coach to try and sway the balance.

Better luck next time.

Not my consolation at all. I just enjoyed the laugh that you laughed at England when your team was junk.

Now, back in your place.

That's nice, so didn't Scotland, Samoa, Russia, Namibia, Canada, Argentina, Tonga, USA, Fiji, Georgia & Uruguay.


You still choked on the grand stage!

Disagree. The fact that you get enjoyment from us losing when we're so much better than you certainly amuses me.

We're the greatest sporting nation in the world and that hurts you. :-)

The fact you believe this and talk about it so much tells me your loss hurts you even more.

I'm over it now, disappointed at the time. But comments like the above cheered me up.

Oh dear, I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

I'm still enjoying your pain.

Trust me, that's NOT the pain I am feeling, but rather your empty, shallow soul!

Ps, I don't play rugby, so Id didn't qualify for anything.

Why would you want to feel something that doesn't exist?

You may not play rugby but clearly it hurts that it's another sport we're better than you at. Can you name one decent sport that you're better than us at?
