England can RIP into South Africa
England coach Kevin Sinfield has told his players to seize their moment in Saturday’s World Cup semi-final against South Africa and avoid a lifetime of regrets.
His team are 80 minutes away from facing New Zealand in the final but first they must upset the odd against the world champion Springboks.
It promises to be a meeting of muscle in the capital but Sinfield said England will have no fear of taking on the infamous Bomb Squad.
Sir Clive Woodward's had his say on how England can fight fire with fire
Woodward: One of my favourite sayings is: ‘Great teams are made of great individuals.’ In my coaching career, I always thought the best players thrived under pressure.
If I was in Steve Borthwick’s shoes as England head coach tonight, I would be putting the maximum pressure I could on the team. There would be no big Churchillian speech. I would tell this England squad that if every individual does their job properly, we can beat South Africa and claim a place in the World Cup final.
For every player and staff member involved at the Stade de France, there will be huge pressure. You do not want to be the one who lets the team down.
Good evening everyone and welcome to tonight’s Rugby World Cup action.
