England 12-32 South Africa rugby LIVE RESULT: Rugby World Cup final reaction as Siya Kolisi lifts trophy for Springboks – The Sun

SOUTH AFRICA secured a dominant win over England in the Rugby World Cup final.

Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe scored brilliant tries on an emotional day for South African rugby as Siya Kolisi becomes the first black captain ever to lift the World Cup.

  • Those England players are simply devastated.

  • Great pictures of that trophy lift for South Africa.

  • Sir Clive Woodward is not getting drawn into a discussion about the bus being late for England.

    He tells ITV: “It's all semantics. England didn't lose tonight because the bus was half an hour late.

    “They were very calm, very collected, we've got to move on from that.

    “Eddie spoke really well to be fair.

    “I'm just looking at the players, they've got to take this on the chin, they've got to stick together.

    “We've just lost to a better team tonight.

    “If you can't compete at the scrum you're going to get beat, there's no two ways about it.”

  • Eddie Jones responds to rumours the England bus was 25 minutes late turning up to the ground in Yokohama.

    Jones adds: “We don't have any excuses mate.”

    Asked about his future, he adds: “It's not the time to discuss it now, that's for the future, this team, there's no reason why they can't keep developing.”

  • Here is beaten England head coach Eddie Jones.

    This is his second World Cup final defeat… after losing to England in 2003 as Australia coach.

    He says: “Look we just struggled to get on the front foot.

    “They were very aggressive in the ruck and the breakdown.

    “It wasn't until late in the second half we got any parity in the scrum and it's hard playing off back-foot ball.

    “South Africa are worthy winners of the World Cup, we weren't quite good enough today but I can't fault the effort of my players throughout the World Cup.

    “They played with a lot of pride and passion.”
