We also play that slippery sort but we are about as good at that as Canada are at rugby.

Yeh rooting for them also.

Bit disconnected from the games as just arrived in Vietnam. Loads of scooters though. Need to figure out how to watch the semis.

It was Awesome to be in Heathrow watching the match. Especially as they won!

I'm excited for the Final. It's going to be a great match up.

Heck, I'm even ecstatic for the All Blacks vs Wales!

If men played soccer, this is what it would look like.

Make it an olympic sport. See what happens.
Has Rugby ever been an Olympic sport? If so, who won?

As far as the game at hand, they just needed to get the ball out faster. You could have posted instagram photos waiting for it out of the ruck.
The Brit with no chin reminded me of a hooker I played with called Well Fed Ed. He was extremely slow, but hard to move.
We played the Boks, they kicked our asses.

Sevens is currently an Olympic sport, in 2016 Fiji won the mens medal and Aussie won the womens.

But that's not Union, is it? I guess it's like Beach Volleyball.
Change the rules so it's more like League. Not really Rugby, but better TV.

The first half was a game of kicks.

Those Try's were amazing! Jumping up and down off of my couch as they happened!

I LOVED the post win shots back to SA and the people celebrating and partying.

England put up a mighty fight in the first half. Just got outplayed in the second half. I don't think they should be ashamed as I saw them fighting literally to the last second of the match. They gave it their all. Hold your heads up boys!

Also, shout out to Wales and New Zealand. That was a great match to watch as well. I'm glad Coach and Captain got a win under their belt for their final match.

I confess that I was sure that England was going to get over for a try with that multi-phase movement 5 yards from the goal line. But the 'Boks defense stood firm again and again and England only got a penalty out of it.
