yeah...The Poms recovered really well...started off shaky in the tournament...but finished on top...tough on the wallabies...that wilkinson dude is something eh...

my interest in rugby is from my high school days...played a little... was a winger...due to my lighter frame and speed...amongst the sub-continent people rugby is quite popular in Sri Lanka...and its from them and a couple of my english and Kiwi friends that I learnt about rugby. Loved it! nothing like takling a bigger fella than yourself!!!

That was the best game!!! Even if the poms won...you gotta hand it to Jonny Wilkinson!!

Absolutaly amazing...how nerve-racking would it be for Elton Flattley (I'm talking to those who watched it) and you gotta love Lote Tuqiri!!!

GREAT FINAL!

The Wallabies never had it in them. The English were pre-tournament favourites. They've hammered every single team over the last couple of years. The Wallabies had a disastrous start to this tournament, whereas the Poms knocked the living daylights out of everyone (except in one match). They deserved to win this one.

Johnny Wilkinson was great, but so were the others. I like Dallaliglio and Johnson.

It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming, rugby's coming home...

It's good to see someone beat those weird talking, tanned, bratty sunny boys from Down Under. I was getting sick and tired of them winning everything in cricket and rugby. And they ought to give swimming a rest too.

Jonny Wilkinson can't take his eyes off the prize as he and his England rugby team-mates return home with the World Cup
