Beaumont hails Japan 2019 as 'probably the greatest Rugby World Cup'

Craig Ray, Senior Sports journalist - Daily MaverickIt came down to who handled the pressure best and who better than the man who fought for survival to handle the pressure in a rugby final.

The outpouring of support for the Springboks on the road to the final once again showed the enormous potential of sport to unite South Africans as a people, the president said.

Prince Harry congratulated South Africa on their victory against England at the 2019 Rugby World Cup final on Saturday.

"We have so many problems in our country", the 28-year-old Kolisi said.

England's Rugby Football Union chief executive Bill Sweeney told British news outlets that "it makes sense, doesn't it?" to retain Jones, whose current contract expires in 2021.

He thanked the people on the farms, in the taverns, in the townships and in the streets. "Just shows that we can pull together if we want to achieve something".

"Japan will have games against England and Ireland in the next 12 months".

The English were driven backward at the scrum.

By analysing data and trends from 20th September 2019 to 18th October 2019, Taboola was able to identify which teams and players amassed the most buzz online.

Flyhalf Farrell kicked four penalties for England but they were chasing the match all evening and hanging on doggedly trying to contain the rampant Springboks by the end.

The celebrations could start early for the South African fans inside the International Stadium and back home, on a poignant night for a country still trying to fully emerge from the apartheid era. When the popularity of the Final 4 competitors were compared, South Africa came out on top with more than 6.2 million people reading about the team.

The trip marks Prince Harry's first official visit to Japan - just weeks after dad Prince Charles joined royals from around the world in attending the enthronement ceremony for Japan's Emperor Naruhito.

Fans at Portsmouth Rugby Camp react to the televised Rugby World Cup final between England and South Africa.

"I've never seen South Africa like this, United as one".

Munster have pulled off quite the coup in landing World Cup victor Damian de Allende on a two-year deal from the start of the 2020-21 season and Botha is confident that he can rival the impact made by other worldwide signings, including compatriot Jean de Villiers.
