Watch ENG vs SA Rugby World Cup final 2019 for free The eyes of the world will be on Yokohama, Japan come Saturday morning as England go head-to-head with South Africa in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.
It’s a repeat of the 2007 showpiece, where the Springboks beat the then reigning world champions 15-6, with five penalties scored to their opposition’s two. A reverse of that fixture would see England win their second world title, while South Africa are aiming for their third.
Eddie Jones’s England go into the biggest fixture of their careers as bookies’ favourites, having beaten New Zealand – champions of the past two tournaments and until last weekend unbeaten in 18 World Cup matches stretching back to 2007 – by 19 points to 7. South Africa, meanwhile, were defeated 23-13 by the same opposition in their first game of the pool stage.
Jones has also been able to name the same side that beat the All Blacks last time out, with captain Owen Farrell, leading try-scorer Jonny May and prop Kyle Sinckler all past fit despite picking up knocks in the semi-final. Tom Curry, one of six nominees for World Player of the Year, also starts again.
