CHRIS FOY: England will rise again after heartbreaking semi final disappointment against South Africa - as a changing of the guard is imminent, October 22, 2023
CHRIS FOY: The cause for English hope amid their World Cup despair was epitomised on Saturday night by George Martin's big shot on a rampaging Franco Mostert, which reverberated around the Stade de France and beyond. That split-second statement of brutal intent represented a collision between two powerful men, and also between the present and the future of the national team. It was a tackle which showed that England have some young forward clout to be reckoned with. It was the highlight of a night when we might just have witnessed the emergence of a next-generation Martin Johnson. It wouldn't be the worst consolation, if that - in time - turns out to be the case. England were shattered by this result, with good reason. They were heroic and committed and smart and precise for most of a rain-soaked semi-final, until the Springboks snatched victory from under their noses. The better team did not prevail. England won just about every contest in the air and on the floor, until South Africa sent on Ox Nche to ransack their scrum and turn the tide.
