It's been going on for the last five weeks. The final is on Saturday.
South Africa v England in Paris.

South Africa beat England 36 - 0 earlier in the competition, but England have been playing a lot better in their last two matches. If they can carry on playing well, it should be a close game, but South Africa are definitely favourites.
I'm going to trust patriotism over form and say 18 - 13 to England.

I don't really follow the rugby (although I went to two games at the last world cup) but I'm leaning towards the boks. Hopefully it will be a close game either way.

I for one hope SA wins, but I'm just sooo chuffed that Dutch TV is showing the game life that I will be happy either way, as long as it is a great game.

New Zealand had an early exit in the quarter finals when they lost to France 20-18

This was the biggest upset of the tournament, as the All Blacks were the favorites to win it.

The All Blacks have only won the very first rugby world cup in 1987. Despite being the most consistent team in the world for many years, the rugby world cup keeps eluding them.

The next world cup in 2011, will be in New Zealand. Maybe they can win it at home. My money will still be on South Africa (Springboks)

Will start saving for the trip in 2011, to go and see it.

My husband is All Blacks fan and now I understand why we have big pile of empty beer bottles in backyard.

Ja, shame, the New Zealanders and supporters took it pretty bad.

But I still believe New Zealand is the one rugby force in the world, that everyone aspire to be.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
