Rugby World Cup Final: England v South Africa – Live
46 mins: England 6 South Africa 15
South Africa take an opportunity to refresh their own pack with the introduction of Vincent Koch and Steven Kitshoff in place of Tendai Mtawarira and Frans Malherbe, and their first contribution is to completely dominate England in the scrum, winning a penalty that Pollard steers between the posts.
This is the scoreline by which the Springboks beat England in the 2007 final.

Kick-off: England 0 South Africa 0
It takes less than 30 seconds for England fans to launch into a rendition of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, but they are left breathing a huge sigh of relief when Handre Pollard skews his first effort from the tee wide of the right-hand upright after Jones' men were penalised for not rolling away.

Captain Owen Farrell expects his England team-mates to seize their opportunity to realise their boyhood dreams today.
He said: "Everybody wants to be involved in this game and there are probably a lot of people who grew up wanting to be involved in this.
"Now this opportunity has come around, you want to enjoy it, you want to go for it.
"You don't want to dip your toe in and see what happens, you want to throw all of yourself into it and that's the way that we'll look to go about it."
08.00 The big day has arrived
After six weeks of action and 44 matches, the time has come to crown the winners of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. England were mightily impressive in beating New Zealand 19-7 in their semi-final but will need to be at the top of their game once more to overcome a powerful South Africa side who eliminated Wales. The prize for England is a second World Cup triumph – their last, of course, having come in 2003. The Springboks, meanwhile, are chasing their third.
Fans are arriving at the International Stadium in Yokohama for what should be a fantastic occasion. Kick-off is an hour away.
