Now how did I guess there would be negative comments about Wales' game tomorrow. I'm all for a bit of rivalry but surely you should be supporting a home nation to win - England played so well today I couldn't hand on heart wish for the All Blacks to make a comeback - they didn't deserve it. I'm hoping for an England v Wales final and then I will of course support my own country ;)

I am happy for you to win tomorrow Jan but not if you then beat England.

I feel sure in all of the Welsh pubs the Taffs would have been cheering England on. :lol:
I was once in a pub in Betws y Coed when England were playing a World Cup match so I have experienced their love at first hand.

I was actually born in Porth so would always support Wales except if they was playing England which is where I have lived since 18 months old.

Torn?
Nah!

I'd love Wales to get through to the final. What a great occasion.

Had some great times in St Brides and along that Pembrokeshire coast and Tescos in Haverfordwest which restored my damaged faith in the Welsh so I admit I am torn. I will be happy for my Welsh friends but for those in that pub in Betws y Coed it's a &*$Β£%* from me!!!

Commiserations to Wales in a closely fought match. England vs South Africa it is then.

Thanks Foxy - agony to watch for the real diehards and I know great disappointment. Such a shame Warren Gatland couldn't go out having reached a World Cup final and truthfully I am not a fan of Eddie Jones - he just has an attitude I don't like :problem: I'll be rooting for England next weekend though regardless.

Jan, I wish more of your country persons were like you. This applies equally to the Scots who perpetuate the 'anybody but England' philosophy. We should support each other as home nations.........except when we are playing each other.

Such a shame, it would have been a great match. But in truth Wales didn’t play so well in the first half.

Good luck to England now then.

It seemed to me that the Welsh players were more interested in grabbing each other's bums rather than playing rugby.

Anyway it bacon butties at my house next Saturday if anyone is interested? :D

Can't complain about that. The Springboks were by far the better side. England looked nervy from the start and were literally swamped by SA. They deserved the win. :clap:

An unfortunate start - Sinkler has had an excellent tournament, but one player probably wouldn't have made enough of a difference. One Welshman might have, though - never trusted the French. πŸ˜’

England done over by the better team, it was a good run and a far better game to a point than the game Springboks played against Wales.

I am glad I am a football fan and not a RU fan.
But why didn't last week's England team turn up?
I guess the Welsh will now claim they are the home countries champs based on their performance against the Boks.

That's the spirt Foxy...l was watching a television interview last night where Welsh and Scots were asked who they were supporting. ..about half of them said SA........l suppose they might have had duel nationalities :thumbdown:

The SA defence were rock solid and outwitted us in the scrums... fair result!!
