England Faces South Africa In World Cup Final
After six weeks of exciting World Cup Rugby, it comes down to a Saturday finale between two familiar foes in England and South Africa. These two national sides have quite an interesting past history, which dates far back as 1906 during what was the South African rugby tour of Europe. It was the first international tour by a team from South Africa and came just four years after the Boer war. The game was played in Crystal Palace ending in a 3-3 standstill. Since that time they have battled amongst each other in 41 test matches, with the Springboks leading the all-time series 25-15-2.
