After six weeks of upsets, hammerings and cancellations we are down to just two teams in the 2019 Rugby World Cup final, England and South Africa.


Alongside Brian Moore this week is the former England sevens captain and broadcaster Rob Vickerman to reflect on the two semi finals and to look ahead to Saturday's showdown.


England produced the finest display of the Eddie Jones era to dismiss pre tournament favourites New Zealand on Saturday morning and both Brian and Rob think it’s hard to look past them for the William Webb Ellis Trophy.


As for New Zealand, it's not the three in a row that departing head coach Steve Hansen had his sights set on, former All Black Scott Hamilton joins the show to speak about how the Kiwi’s have reacted to the defeat and who’s likely to replace Hansen after the tournament.


Wales campaign ended on Sunday morning with a narrow defeat to a very physical South African side. Former Osprey’s head coach Sean Holley tells us the right side won on the day but Wales can hold their heads up high, in particular Warren Gatland and Alun Wyn Jones, who Sean thinks has plenty of years left in the tank.


And looking ahead to Saturday’s final we speak with former Springbok Thinus Delport about where the game could be won and lost and if the South African’s are going to rely on their brute power to win the trophy.
