They won't be happy at all, and a new baby Bok team (and coach) will no doubt arise.

Aside: I can't complain really. My team has won two WCs in my lifetime.

Probably won't live to see another.

How the hell did Australia win that SA dominated all aspects of the game and were by far the better team.
Easy win for the Blacks next week.

France v NZ final.

Australia was aided and abetted by the referee on more than one occasion.

The UK Daily Telegraph has an interesting article on it.

My mother was half welsh, so come on Wales!

Bad luck to S.A. - they have a right to feel aggreived.
