Rugby World Cup Final - a few observations
- I haven’t seen a re-run yet, but it appeared to me that New Zealand solved the “Pooper” problem by simply not taking the ball into contact anywhere in the vicinity of Pocock or Hooper. Not rocket science but clearly a strategy way beyond what England could come up with.
- Fantastic atmosphere at Twickenham with the exception only of the disrespectful idiots who thought that singing “Swing Low” was a good idea (unless it was being sung ironically, of course, in which case - genius!)
- Sonny Bill Williams has his critics but the gesture of giving his medal to the young lad wiped out by an overly aggressive steward was quite superb. What I also liked was the apparent reaction of the boy’s mother who wanted him to give the medal back as he shouldn’t have been on the pitch in the first place!!
