full-time 43-33, good job excellent display of exhibition - great to see Rory Best one last time, Ken Owens up to his usual form including two tries, Gatland smiling more in one match than in the past twelve years, a bizarre rendition of god save the queen, and great debuts for Pivac's new picks. Fun match all round.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇿🇦 England v South Africa World Cup FInal - Match THread. We are back for kickoff at the beginning of the second half. 40 minutes to go, let's see what England brings out of the tunnels to change up their play this half.

Match Thread - the teams are lining up in the tunnel, the drummers are drumming, the crowd is buzzing, we're couting down to the final between England and South Africa. Now it's anthems for the last time, and 80 minutes of what I hope will be some cracking .

New Zealand v ... Steve Hansen and Warren Gatland both step down as head coach after this match. With the pressure off, this promises to be a lively match with both teams looking to give their coach a fitting send-off.

Wales have not beaten the All Blacks in 66 years, but if ever a team could, it's this one. In some ways, this is the final that never was. Settle in, this should be one heck of a match.

Going, going, gong. It's all over. Chwarae teg, the Sais were simply masterful in their control. Powerful stuff. Here's to an all northern hemisphere final! I hope everyone had fun, that was a heck of a match to watch.

See you all tomorrow! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 🇿🇦

Tom Curry and Mario Itoje are simply owning everything they see. You'd expect to see New Zealand keeping the ball in field but it has been kick to touch after kick to touch from Barrett.

England still steering this match. New Zealand pulling bodies from the bench looking for fresh legs and fresh ideas.

Intense form from both sides so far. Every tiny mistake is being grabbed up by the other side. Turnover after turnover, an interception, erveryone is very very hungry. Mario Itoje especially.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇳🇿 Match Thread 🏉

The English team take on the Barrett family from New Zealand.

Soon, my country, you will be rich.

Your rivers run through my veins.
Your tides and mountains
swell in my chest.
Your birds of prey
are my arms and legs in flight.
I have fifteen hearts.

Inside this steel frame
the wheels of your valleys
turn again, spin
and catch the sun.

I am steel in flight, unstoppable,
a dragon with fifteen hearts.

have the won the past four matches against South Africa, and I had the pleasure of dinner with Warren Gatland, Rhys Williams and Alan Phillips in DC leading up to the match in 2018. I had a heart to heart with Gats that night and we talked six nations, autumn series and and I have the utmost confidence he has a master plan that is carefully unfolding. His leadership is undeniable, and he has plenty more up his sleeve. Bring it on. youtube.com/watch?v=dGMO4dK8fK
