I was a bit of an armchair rugby fan this weekend - thought I was going to witness the demise of the reigning holders but instead, saw a truly gritty performance by the English, who against all odds, overcame the Aussies to win 10-12, all points scored by Johnny Wilkinson. Brilliant!
And then, I watched the French overcome the tournament favourites New Zealand in an exciting game, to set up a delicious semi-final tie against England next weekend. The other tie will be between South Africa and rank outsiders Argentina.
I'll take an England v Argentina final any day!
