Rugby World Cup Final
Thoughts of the week
“Rugby World Cup Final”
So it’s the world cup final this weekend, England v South Africa! A very eagerly anticipated battle against two of the most physical teams in the tournament. England have no losses going into this game and South Africa have one.
With some very competitive tactics being displayed so far and each teams players being at a world class level of fitness it really is going to be a fantastic sporting event to witness.
The environmental factors of incredibly high temperatures and very high humidity is going to add to the challenge immensely, especially is things go in to extra time which could very well happen.
The pressure of being in a final and the multi-million person audience from around the world means that each team needs to get their preparation right and each player needs to be optimally focused.
Both teams have minimal injuries which means a high majority of their best players will start making things even more evenly matched from he first whistle.
England have been exciting to watch so far and South Africa have been surprising. Who will rise to the occasion? Even if you don’t play rugby you don’t want to miss this! So many lessons can be learnt from world cup tournaments like this that can be used, not just in sport, but business and everyday life…
