Springboks win the Rugby World Cup

Congratulations to the South African national Rugby team (the Springboks) on capturing the 2007 Rugby World Cup. A well deserved triumph.

Watching the game, it was difficult to say that England put up a good match, but that doesn't take anything away from the Boks. They played well and did what it took to win.

I am going to go out on a limb here and predict a New Zealand win in 2011. No team can perform so consistently bad in one tournament. We are due!

But what a dull, no-risk style (on both sides)! As a fellow (former) antipodean, am sorry to see this style of play dominate over the ball skills of the All Blacks, or Wallabies. Let's hope for better in 2011.

Yes, it wasn't really the best display of running rugby I have ever seen. I guess you tend to be a bit conservative in a final, but still.
