So, this is it. One more game, one more victory and not only will we be world champions, but also ranked number one in the world. There will be people that will argue, but being both champs and no1 ranked speaks for itself, no? Of course, it's not quite there yet.
England need to be defeated once more. Let me say I think England played very well against the French, pity they lost Lewsey, he really put in a hearty performance, twas good to see.
I just want the guys to carry on playing the way they do. It's not perfect, we make mistakes, our scrums are not as strong as they traditionally are, we allowed way too much turnover ball, still some defensive errors, etc. The one thing we managed to do without fail is score points though, many of them. Against different kinds of opposition with different kinds of play, forwards or backs. We are balanced and our attacks have been very successful.
I believe we can take it if we play our current game, and quite simply score more points than England are able to. If the bokke allow England to keep the score low, then we will be in trouble.
Run in three tries and England will be down and out. Obviously it would be important to maintain discipline and not allow them to rack up points through penalties...but that would be throwing it away me thinks.
The lads just need to win one more for us. I know they can do it, and despite all the overrated talk and what not, this team will take some beating, against ANYone. Bring it home boys, you know were all freaking out all over South Africa right now. You know just about the entire country is gonna come to standstill to watch this match, and see you lift that trophy.
Good luck to England. They earned some respect from me from this weekends game, and I'm sure they won't be push overs again.
