Rugby Australia preaches “diversity” and “inclusiveness” when what they really mean is uniformity or exclusion.

Inclusivity means including all, it means including people whom you may not agree with, it means including Israel Folau

Well done to the Boks. They join NZ with three world cups. Incredibly the boks have not conceded a single try in three world cup finals.

England played really well against the AB's who put in the worst performance by them for many a year. In the final however the forward pack of the Boks monstered their English rivals. This was especially true in the scrum where it was like watching a top tier one nation taking on a second tier team.

What a remarkable turnaround Rassie Erasmus has engineered with the boks.

Well the only thing I can say is "Well played South Africa".

They had a plan and they executed it perfectly. The murdered England in the scrum which is unusual for an England team. We were 2.5 kilos a man heavier in the pack and are a pretty well drilled outfit usually, but the South Africans killed us from the first.

The loss of Kyle Sinckler early on was a blow but that doesn't excuse anything. They got the penalties, kicked them and again.... that's another tactic England have used to great effect in the past.

You could say they beat us at our own game. Hoist with our own petard.

I was very pleased for Solisi. It was wonderful to see him take the trophy. He conducted himself with a mixture of joy, pride and humility. Fitting behaviour for a fine captain and a gentleman.

Naturally I'm disappointed England didn't win, but it seems we played our final last week. we couldn't reach those heights again.

So...... Well played South Africa. Worthy winners and fine champions.

2023 in France. We'll see you in Paris.
