Not since 1872...

...has England lost so badly...suck it up!

LONDON: World champions South Africa dealt a hapless England their worst defeat at Twickenham with a crushing 42-6 victory in a lopsided rematch of last year's World Cup final. The Springboks, who had already beaten Wales and Scotland, made pre-match suggestions that they were too tired look laughable with a performance of classy opportunism in attack and dogged determination in defence. Tries by Danie Rossouw, Ruan Pienaar, Adie Jacobs, Jaque Fourie and Bryan Habana and assured goalkicking by Pienaar after the break completed a hugely satisfying European tour with South Africa's sixth win in a row against England.
