I agree with all you've said there Dan. I've been thoroughly enthralled and entertained the whole way through. Whilst I could never cheer for England, they played a magnificent tournament & were unlucky not to go the whole way. Though odds were against them getting a Southern Slam in the process! I'm also really quiet happy for South Africa to take it out. It gives hope that any country can come out of the doldrums & quite quickly to. England also proof of this. And there are so many good individual stories out of the Saffa camp. With their captain leading the way in that regard. Dare I say it, but I feel South Africa winning has made Rugby beautiful again. The Japanese story is a wonderful sub plot.
