SIR CLIVE WOODWARD’S WARNING: England cannot get complacent in Rugby World Cup final vs South Africa

SIR CLIVE WOODWARD'S WARNING: It worries me that England have already been anointed champions - the World Cup final will be a dogfightAfter England dominated New Zealand many think they will breeze to victory But South Africa are formidable and have great togetherness in their camp The World Cup is littered with teams who failed to back up a huge performance Eddie Jones is aware of the pitfalls and Saturday's final could be incredibly close By Sir Clive Woodward for the Daily Mail Published: 22:02 GMT, 31 October 2019 | Updated: 22:03 GMT, 31 October 2019 e-mail View comments Hang on to your hats, cross your fingers, dig out your good luck charms and say a little prayer — this one's going to be very close indeed! Just about everybody in Japan and around the rugby world have been lavish in praise of England after the New Zealand game and seem to have already anointed Eddie Jones's team as world champions. That really worries me. Sport just doesn't work like that. In a knockout tournament, your last game counts for nothing. England have to find the energy to go again after emptying the tank against New Zealand It counted for nothing in 1987 when France recorded a memorable semi-final win over Australia only to misfire badly a week later in the final against New Zealand. It was irrelevant in 1995 when New Zealand thrashed England only to lose to South Africa. And in 1999 it was exactly the same when the French again produced rugby from the Gods against the All Blacks only to implode a week later against Australia. Eddie knows this better than anybody. His Aussie team produced a memorable semi-final against the All Blacks in 2003 only to lose to us a week later.

But imagine the feeling for the goalkeeper when that happens twice to you, and incredibly in the space of just 90 seconds.

Rugby World Cup 2019: England’s Joe Cokanasiga nominated for World Rugby award

England's Joe Cokanasiga nominated for World Rugby's Breakthrough Player of the Year award, with Eddie Jones, Maro Itoje and Tom Curry also in the running for gongs at Tokyo ceremonyBy Chris Foy For Mailonline Published: 06:45 GMT, 30 October 2019 | Updated: 06:48 GMT, 30 October 2019 e-mail View comments Joe Cokanasiga has been nominated for World Rugby's Breakthrough Player of the Year award - as a consolation at the end of what has been a personally frustrating World Cup campaign. Bath's giant rookie wing burst on to the Test scene with a try-scoring England debut against Japan last November and the Fiji-born 21-year-old followed that up by touching down again in a victory over Australia the following weekend. Despite limited opportunities during the Six Nations, he was able to earn a place in Eddie Jones' 31-man squad for this tournament, but he has been a bit-part figure since arriving in Japan.

In truth, the Springboks have been playing knockout rugby ever since falling to defeat in their Pool B opener against the All Blacks, simply having to win every match there since to reach this stage. Rassie Erasmus's men have done just that, and in some style too, scoring more points than any other team in Japan. Here, Sportsmail takes a look at their run to the final, the matches where they excelled, and the possible weaknesses exposed by some of their adversaries along the way.

South Africa could not have faced a tougher opening fixture when they faced the All Blacks In all likelihood, this was always going to be an immediate shoot-out for first place in Pool B, and some even billed it as a dress-rehearshal for Saturday's final.
