The Winner, Rugby

We’ll get some deserved rest at long last you’d 
like to suggest - & I’d have to agree - with 2015 
RWC final played there’s peace in Camp tonite; 
Webb-Ellis trophy’s ended up in the right bag, if 
you’re from the other side of that ditch - gotta be 
glad Michael Cheika didn’t get to wallow dourly 
in glory tho’, sadly it’d’ve cheapened the theme 
of a magnificent game staged so honourably 

And our lads played their best against the first 
team successfully defending the RWC trophy - 
well done All Blacks, the Wallabies pushed you 
to limits you proved to be adept at, & indeed its 
immense honour to be part of a contest where, 
in every way, Rugby was the winner
