44 games later and the 2019 Rugby World Cup has had everything we hoped it would - but there's one ultimate test left for the players and fans of England and South Africa. It goes without saying that the Rugby World Cup final is an unmissable match – follow our England vs South Africa live stream guide to make sure you see every minute, regardless of where in the world you are today.

If England had been practically blemish free in the lead up to their semi-final against New Zealand, they were simply phenomenal in the way that they dismantled the All Blacks. They have proved rich with talent from 1 to 15 – not to mention Eddie Jones's famous 'Finishers' from the bench. Man mountains like Maro Itoje, Kyle Sinckler and Billy Vunipola have tackled and carried like kings, while the creative duo of George Ford and captain Owen Farrell have produced gold in the midfield.

England know they've got what it takes to lift the Web Ellis Cup in Japan this year, but in their way are the awesome Springboks – their vanquishers in the last Rugby World Cup final they made 12 years ago. South Africa have perhaps been the dark horses in Japan, dispatching their other opponents with ruthless efficiency – including the much-fancied hosts in the quarter-finals. Fly-half Handrè Pollard's boot has put him among the highest scorers of the tournament, while winger Makazole Mapimpi is equal second-top try scorer. A third World Cup win tomorrow will tie them with New Zealand as most ever.

It would be lovely to see running tries from the likes of Jonny May and Makazole Mapimpi but instead expect a juddering battle of wills from the packs and the backs feeding off scraps.

South Africa’s coach Rassie Erasmus, did, however, warn England to expect a tactical battle and not just the much-hyped physical one for which they are prepared.

Erasmus, who is at his first World Cup while England’s Eddie Jones has been at four, said this week: “He is a brilliant coach and I had the privilege of working with him for a couple of weeks before the 2007 World Cup. He has a great work ethic, knows what he wants and he does not stop, a workaholic. He gets the best out of players and likes to keep opposition coaches busy by saying things while he remains on task. I can’t do that.”

Who will lift the Webb Ellis Trophy in 2019? My heart says England but my head fears South Africa.
