    Full-time

    All Blacks 44 - 6 The Pumas

    Ref didn't help the argies 1st half, but they were thoroughly beaten.

    England v South Africa tonight.. most fancy a NZ v Boks final on merit and for the spectacle. England will be a tough enough opponent for the Boks imo

    South Africa's Bongi Mbonambi has been accused of using a racial slur towards England flanker Tom Curry during his side's Rugby World Cup semi-final win. No idea

    I could be wrong, but i believe he called him a white c**t........hardly a racial slur imo.because
    (a) he is white
    (b) anybody can come across as a c**t, especially in a highly contested Rugby game.

    He may look white to you but we shouldn't assume - maybe he doesn't identify as white?

    Some South Africans saying it was a reference to his shirt colour so in the final it will be all black cnts.

    Apparently white cant means something like white out or ball out, as in white ball out of rook, line out, maul, ruck etc

    Though I do agree

    He said "wit kant" wit = white, kant = side. Meaning it is on the white side. No racial slur. Sour grapes. Curry should have maybe sought clarity before running to the ref. England were trying all sorts on the day psychologically. They even trying to disrupt the build up to the most wanted rugby world cup final ever.

    Not sure how he could seek clarity? By asking Mbonambi?! He should just get on with the game.

    It does seem like sour grapes. This World Cup hasn't been the friendliest or most sporting tournament.
