England vs South Africa Stream

 

The eyes of the world will be on Yokohama, Japan come Saturday morning as watch England vs South Africa live stream go head-to-head with in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.

It’s a repeat of the 2007 showpiece, where the Springboks beat the then reigning world champions 15-6, with five penalties scored to their opposition’s two. A reverse of that fixture would see England win their second world title, while South Africa are aiming for their third.

Eddie Jones’s England go into the biggest fixture of their careers as bookies’ favourites, having beaten New Zealand – champions of the past two tournaments and until last weekend unbeaten in 18 World Cup matches stretching back to 2007 – by 19 points to 7. South Africa, meanwhile, were defeated 23-13 by the same opposition in their first game of the pool stage.

Rassie Erasmus’s side go into the final as the tournament’s current top scorers – with 230 points to their opponents’ 178, including a competition-high 31 tries – though they have played an extra game after England vs South Africa Stream final pool stage tie against France was called off.

There will be personal honours on offer, too, with England’s Owen Farrell (46) and Handre Pollard of South Africa (47) both in reach of Japan kicker Yu Tamura’s 51 points scored so far in the tournament, while Makazole Mapimpi (5) is currently one try behind Wales’s Josh Adams before the two feature in the final and bronze final respectively.

There were no tries scored when these two nations met in the 2007 final, and this may well start off as a cagey affair, but the sport’s greatest spoils will likely go to whichever side is prepared to take the game by the scruff of the neck and drag it over the try line.
