Damn it, the question is no longer whether the Six Nations or the Tri Nations will include Argentina. It's can we get them? It would be a privilege.

Meanwhile, we wait for tomorrow night. The Boks are favourite - and with support for that team reaching the streets of Soweto, who could grudge them if they win? Of course I want England to succeed, but it's a win-win situation when the sport that I love best could unite a troubled nation if we lose.

It will be the last game for a number of players. Jason Robinson is one. With all the hype about Jonny Wilkinson, I feel Robinson is underrated. His success in both League and Union makes him unique. His contribution to this World Cup has been unequalled. He's going to go out at the top of his game. I think he's a candidate for the greatest rugby player of all time.

I'm hoping he scores a try and England win.

UPDATE: Congratulations, South Africa. The best team on the day won. But also congrats to the England team. A real, gritty performance.
