"They were too good for us on the day", said Jones, appointed by England with the aim of leading them to triumph in Japan after their embarrassing first-round exit on home soil at the 2015 World Cup. France offered a hint of what it may do as host in 2023, until which time nothing can happen to alter the figures contained in our view of the 2019 tournament By The Numbers. Indeed, it was the All Blacks who inflicted a ten-point defeat on South Africa in Yokohama in their opening match of the campaign back in late September.

And there was heavy symbolism when Siya Kolisi, South Africa's first black captain, lifted the Webb Ellis Cup in a second to rival 1995, when then president Nelson Mandela was readily available to congratulate Francois Pienaar's victorious staff.

Rugby Football Union (RFU) chief executive Bill Sweeney told Sky Sports that Jones is "committed" to seeing out his contract as England head coach until 2021. His father 12 years later, having never flown on a plane before, was rushed to Japan to witness Kolisi become South Africa's third World Cup-winning skipper.

"It's going to be insane traveling through South Africa and I hope they do that - take the trophy to the people".

"Eddie's one of the world's best coaches - if not the best - despite the result against South Africa", Sweeney said.

"The only thing I'm anxious about now", Jones said, "is having a few beers".

They play together and it makes them a successful team, and that is a attractive story for life and for a country.

"For us, we decided long before the Rugby Championship, we wouldn't call it sacrifice, but we needed to be 20 weeks together to have a chance as we were so far behind the other teams".

That South Africa are looking like South Africa again is credit to his man-management as well as his coaching ability.

'I think it is probably going to sink in when we get home and see how people are back at home, ' said Kolisi. "We will give them a hell of a game when they come to South Africa".

"It's going to be massive", he said."I think the British and Irish Lions is the most romantic story in sport, and I think the politicians can learn, the Brexiteers can learn about how the Lions when they come together, how things can work".
