South Africa through to Finals by beating England

0 19

The Springboks finally broke the English scrum, and once again their hearts, to reach the Rugby World Cup final and have a chance at back-to-back titles.

Defending champion South Africa was second-best to England’s smart tactics and precise execution for the best part of 70 minutes of their semifinal at Stade de France on Saturday before what’s becoming a traditional great escape by the Boks saw them steal a thriller 16-15 and set up a title decider next weekend against their fiercest rival, New Zealand.

One of them will win a record fourth World Cup and, with England’s agonizing exit, the trophy is set to stay in the southern hemisphere once again.

By next Saturday night, the southern hemisphere will have won nine out of 10 Rugby World Cups.
