So 2 days of Rugby had led to 3 awesome final matches: a ‘southern hemisphere final ‘ between Australia and South Africa (for 5 & 6th place in the tournament); a ‘north American final’ between Canada and the USA (for 3rd & 4th place) and the final between ‘the auld enemies’ England and Scotland for the tournament trophy.
