    Gonna go out on a limb here and say England by more points than South Africa.

    Jesus, that reading out of the teams on rte was cringey..


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 13,456 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ednwireland


    england for me but as Eddie Jones says I think they will have to up there performance from the nz game if they don't they are in trouble

    All logic points to an England victory but this is the Boks and there's no team quite like them historically who can grind out a win.

    Bizarre. They've had a week to prepare but still read it from a script.

    Do South Africa stand any realistic chance? Feels like its a case of how much England win by not if they win.

    Yep on the wing.

    England would be heavy favourites. SA can front up to England's power and England need 70%+ of what they did against NZ. If it's below that it's game on.

    Come on South Africa!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ mangobob


    The only question for me is did England peak and have their world cup final last week. Likewise South Africa have not had a stormer yet - we haven't yet seen the saffer team that beat NZ and England twice last year. Will they show up for this?

    All logic points to an England win but...

    Come on, England!


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,150 ✭✭✭✭ LuckyGent88


    Kind of seeing this like the Rassie led Munster games v Saracens.

    We believe the packs are equal but when it comes down to it the English will be too powerful I believe. Expect a relatively close first half but England will pull away in second and win by 13 points.

    Have had money on England since the end of the 6 nations. Just felt they had the full squad to go all the way.

    SA players not looking as fired up during the anthems, very nervous.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,309 ✭✭✭✭ lawred2


    This SA anthem is a total mood killer


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,706 ✭✭✭ Doctors room ghost


    Big game wanted from itoje

    yep its sport course they do


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,141 ✭✭✭✭ is_that_so


    Surprised he missed that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,309 ✭✭✭✭ lawred2


    Poor strike... Swiped across it

    Deliberately slow playing from SA there. Stopping England getting out of the blocks like last week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,013 ✭✭✭ SharpshooterTom


    Bad miss, really need to nail those.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,462 ✭✭✭ Jacovs


    Bad bad miss.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,013 ✭✭✭ SharpshooterTom


    Think South Africa should've gone to the corner with that penalty if Pollards a bit nervous about kicking?


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,309 ✭✭✭✭ lawred2


    This looks grim...

    Replay looked innocuous enough. Must have hit the hip.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 13,456 Mod ✭✭✭✭ ednwireland


    sinckler gone nooooh


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,462 ✭✭✭ Jacovs


    Sinckler gone. Big loss for england.

    Ref didn't seem to think so. Not good to lose a player so early.

    I think I have watched far too much uk political coverage, because I am sure I just heard "Oh jeremy corbyn" being belted out by the crowd there.
