STORY: England fans in London were heartbroken after their side lost to South Africa 32-12 in the Rugby World Cup Final on Saturday (November 2).
English and South African supporters congregated in pubs and clubs in the city early on Saturday morning to watch the match on large screens.
England were second-best in every department and though South Africa were excellent, Eddie Jones's team were also the architects of their own downfall at times, playing fast and loose - and inaccurately - in the early stages and making a huge number of handling errors.
Disappointed England fans could only admit their side had been second best on the night while South Africans expressed their pride in Rassie Erasmus and his team.
