11:25:43AM

16′- Another scrum penalty for the Boks. Massive problems for the English in that department.

11:23:09AM

14′- The Boks do well to contest an English lineout. It’s a mess that ends in a South African scrum.

England are rattled.

11:17:31AM

9′- PENALTY slotted by Pollard.

SA 3-0 England

11:17:05AM

8′- Penalty in front of the posts for the Boks. Great work done on the ground from Duane Vermeulen! England were again under pressure after another power Bok scrum…

11:14:14AM

4′- Helter skelter stuff here as England try to run from behind their own goalline! Not what you’d expect from a World Cup final.

11:13:13AM

That was a pity. The Boks had a penalty advantage but decided to run at England. They went far but then lost the advantage…

11:11:52AM

3′- The first scrum is a powerful one from the Boks!

11:10:50AM

The good news is that Sinckler has walked off. He will undergo an head injury assessment (HIA) test but I doubt he’ll pass it.

11:09:19AM

There is a lengthy delay. Sinckler will be replaced by Dan Cole.

11:07:07AM

2′ – Injury concern for England with prop Kyle Sinckler down. Looks like he took a heavy knock to the head.

11:05:31AM

You just cannot make those mistakes in a World Cup final!

11:05:08AM

1′- Oh no, Pollard pulls a relatively simple attempt away to the right…

11:04:41AM

0′- The Boks win a kickable penalty inside the first minute. England lock Courtney Lawes not rolling away at a ruck.

It’s about 35m out for Pollard…

11:03:24AM

Just a reminder, the referee is Frenchman Jerome Garces.

11:02:59AM

Bok flyhalf Handre Pollard gets the World Cup final started!

10:58:25AM

All set now for the respective national anthems…

10:58:12AM

There will be a moment’s silence for those affected by Typhoon Hagibis…

10:56:51AM

It’s Bok skipper Siya Kolisi’s 50th Test. What a moment to bring up that milestone…

10:54:40AM

It’s almost here folks! The teams are getting ready to come out on to the park…

10:39:17AM

“If it’s a slow game, South Africa will win. But I think England will be able to keep up the pace and build a lead. And then South Africa won’t be able to come back…” – former England centre Jeremy Guscott is in the SuperSport studio.

10:33:44AM

The big question today is: Will the Springboks be able to assert their set-piece dominance against an England pack expected to match them?

Will the Boks be creative enough with the rare chances that come their way?

Handre Pollard’s goal-kicking will prove vital again, as well as a Frans Steyn coming on in the second half to perhaps slot a long-range 60m penalty…

10:16:35AM
