So For England, it was a chastening end to a campaign that had promised to end the 16-year wait for the World Cup glory.

South Africa beat England 12-32, win the Rugby World Cup Final 2019 for third time.

England was making various intentions or unintentionally handling errors trying to be too expansive off poorly set-up possession over Springboks, and the scrum was being put into reverse by strong Springbok pressure.

Eddie Jones's team had reached 12-6 at the Half time show over South Africa over the times it looked so bad for England. No team had ever recovered from a half-time deficit to win a Rugby World Cup final - and they never looked like being the first to do so.

Springboks, who had never scored a try in their previous two Rugby World Cup final triumphs in 1995 and 2007 - are now the No.1 team in the world.

Those were iconic moments for a nation besotted with rugby and when Siya Kolisi lifted the William Webb Ellis trophy aloft as the first black man to captain the Springboks they will have the final part of a triptych that will endure forever in the country's collective memory.
