  1. Hundreds watch England defeat on big screen

    Big screen

    Hundreds of rugby fans watched England's World Cup final defeat at Ashton Gate stadium in Bristol.

    Although the majority went home disappointed, there were pockets of joy as a handful of South African's celebrated their team's victory. Sean Viljoen and Mark Tonetti said it was "surreal" watching the match among so many England supporters.

    And in true rugby spirit, many England fans stopped to congratulate them as they left the venue.

    Spirits had been high among the more than 700 supporters who gathered in the Lansdown Suite at Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City and the Bristol Bears.

    The national anthem was belted out with gusto, but when key player Kyle Sinckler left the pitch after sustaining an early injury and South Africa built a healthy lead, the room became tense.

    At the start of the second half, when England began to fight their way back into the game, spirits were high in the Lansdown Suite and the Sports Bar, where fans watched the action on the big screen.

    But with England making plenty of mistakes, and South Africa sealing their win with two tries, it was Sean and Mark who were celebrating at the final whistle.

    Sean, 34, said: "It was a big surprise. At the start of the second half England started dominating but our defence was outstanding. England made a lot of mistakes as well.

    "We're so, so proud of the team. They played exceptionally well." Mark, 36 added: "It was surreal being among so many England fans, especially when there were just five of us singing our national anthem."

    And he paid tribute to the many England supporters who congratulated the pair afterwards.

    "I've played rugby many times myself," said Mark. "You always have a drink with the opposition afterwards. It's a great game."
