It wasn't to be

BBC: England 6-15 South Africa

South Africa ended England's reign as world champions as the Springboks claimed their second World Cup victory.

The scoreline flattered South Africa, but, to be fair, they were the best team in the tournament—if not on the pitch.

The Australian television match official inflicted by far the most damage on the defending champions by disallowing Cueto's clear try early in the second half. The question has to be asked: why didn't he have access to the same video images as the rest of the world?

England were written off as no-hopers before tournament. We never expected to get to the final.

We'll be back.

  1. Toe on line before ball touched try (that was the reasonable side of my brain).......WE WOZ ROBBED (that's the side of the brain dealing with the bastards out to get me)
