The World Cup Final preview one we did in Tokyo

Alex, James and Mike reflect on the World Cup semi-finals and discuss whether New Zealand's defeat was a one-off. Mike looks back on the week building up to the 2003 final, reminisces about what he said to Stirling Mortlock in the tunnel before the game, and James reveals the anguish he's gone through not being part of this England team. Plus, he goes back to camp with Eddie Jones and the squad to see how they're feeling in the final hours before kick-off in Yokohama.
