Willemse is killing the Boks any attempt to attack. Kick and kick badly seems to be his motto. Should change his allegiance to England and be the next Owen Farrell.

Why no advantage to the Boks? Far out they could have scored.

He'd be picked by Borthwick then as playing to the tactics.

It's laughable Sam....everyone's slated England and apparently the two best have served up this dirge....

Even when he instructs them to do something else the kicking badly motto springs forth. See Care and the pathetic drop goal attempt from the scrum in the 22 when England had advantage and a set move off Smith to run last night.

Got to say this final hasn't been a classic.

Hope we get some drama in the last 10.

I actually think a NZ try is needed to spice up the game! Forces SA to go for it.

Has been a terrible final. SA have played very defensively in the second half, despite their man advantage (for most of it).

Ok didn’t see that. Ten mins to go. Hopefully that’s about the play. Close finish. One team gets four titles.

Sets up an interesting conclusion.

SA deserve to lose based on how they've approached this second half.

Mark Telea the wing/flanker got to be in a shout with man of the match if New Zealand snatch this.

That was a perfect opportunity for NZ. Ball kicked straight to a fresh McKenzie in the centre of the field, tired bodies everywhere. Did nothing with it.

27 tackles they said a minute ago. About 10 of those he's absolutely melted the Kiwi on the receiving end. He's a very good shout.

Well done Bokke, Old man aka Biltong.
Not the best celebration for the game but all kudos to the Boks.
They’re not our greatest rivals for nothing.
Enjoy!
If Dutoit is not POTM then more need to go to Specsavers.

SA kept finding a way to win all through the KO stages. Rode out the French storm, nicked it at the end against a determined English effort, then ground it out against the All Blacks. Fair play. All one pointers? Extraordinary. Lottery-style odds on that.

Most successful team in RWC history.

Only one team has ever won a world cup final without scoring a try, that team has done it three times.

Revised. But still an absolute pathetic comment.

Not sure what Barnes did wrong really. Both sides pushed the boundaries in terms of laws excessively.

Why?

When a ref says “oops sorry that wasn’t actually a penalty there, but hey, I’ve given it now, please, take your shot at goal Mr Pollard” that’s just plain wrong

And the number of times a SA player was playing the ball off those feet!!! Christ one time Fourie was fully lying flat on his front and he handled the ball and pushed it back to the SA side.

As much as I don’t like Cane as our 7 nor captain for me those situational things catch the offender just as much as the victim sometimes. Did Cane want to hit his head? No. Did he have the time to adjust for the potential problem? No.
He simply got caught out, a guy running at him and he tried to stop him.
Rules say it’s on you.

So off he goes. Reds are more marginal these days. They used to require malicious intent. Now they simply require poor positioning and a surprise factor.

Get away with clear hands on the floor again - seems to be a common theme.  

Well done to SA but they have had the benefit of some decidedly poor officiating ...

I know you can't say how the game would have gone afterwards but that clearly wrong early pen which Barnes apologised for could have been the difference ...
