    Well, the best team, both on the night, and in the tournament, won. Well done saffies!

    I feel, personally, that the try should have stood, looked like a try to me, and the game could have been majorly changed from there had Wilkinson converted. Alas, it wasn't, and there have been enough people telling the Kiwis to get over the French forward pass for me to not give out sour grapes. Tait had a great game IMO, but well done Saffies. Hoping the English resurgence is not just a 3 week thing; looking forwards to the 6 nations tbh.

    Well done South Africa. For a country that I never want to see winning (ever since Corne Krige punched Jonny Wilkinson in every ruck for entire game in 2002), they have played liked champions throughout and behaved well also. Matfield was unreal tbh.

    England's MOM goes to Tait obviously who was impeccable with ball and without.

    As for England now, they come back home heroes. All of them, from 1-22 because what they have achieved and by almost completing mission impossible made me so proud to live here. In fact I was more proud of them tonight than I was 4 years ago (as we were expected to win it last time round quite frankly).

    Wilkinson and Habana barely stood out and South Africa have a serious talent in Steyn also.

    I loved the WC and watching England play will inspire a lot of club players in this country and renew interest which has wavered since 2003.

    A great tournament.

    The better team won & fair play to them. It was a try when Cueto went over in the corner, but it really wouldn't have made any difference to the outcome. Our lineouts were a disgrace and the yarps discipline at the breakdowns was superb.

    Crippling shame in the Springboks' team will be sacrificed on some spurious political will to get more players from "formerly disadvantaged" backgrounds in the SA team.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Well done South Africa, worthy winners. The two best teams of the tournament played out the final which is what you want to see.

    I still am just so proud to live in England right now.

    They were fantastic in Sri Lanka, a complete revelation in the RWC and a total shambles on in Russia (England not qualifying makes me very happy )

    Congratulations to South Africa, I picked them before the Tri Nations this year to take out the title and they didn't disappoint. They had the perfect mixture of a dominant lineout, strong scrum, aggressive loose forwards and skilled backs. They've also got the experience and match-hardened attitude that the All Blacks never had. For the record, the decision on Cueto was correct, his foot had brushed the sideline. I also felt that the player who shoved Percy Montgomery should have been penalised or sinbinned.

    Oh and congratulations South Africa, well deserved, maybe this could help lead the country into a positive light and inspire the population.

    Yeah I agree there, but I still can't remember the time where I laughed as hard as I did when Montgomery just smashed into the camera.

    He's probably talking about the attractiveness of the football, rather than the actual competitive nature of the game.

    The South African rugby resume makes for some impressive reading...

    * 2 World Cups (equal with Australia)
    * 4 Grand Slams (more than any other SH nation)
    * Beat NZ in NZ 60 years before NZ beat SA in SA

    Truly they are the greatest rugby nation. Scary thing is this is just another notch in their belt of long successes.
