Cape Town – With the last weekday match and first since the last weekend of pool matches,; more attention was given to matters pertaining to the rugby World Cup once more.

Tweet of the Day

Today’s tweet of the day goes to Springbok supporter, Muhammad S Monia (@msmonia, who vented his frustration at how Austalian sports teams, including the Wallabies always seem to find themselves in a position of fortune as he tweeted:
“(Sic) From South African In Rugby #RWC Aussies had B L, in cricket Aussies had D L & At the end they got F oL Proudly South African”

Meanwhile, Ronald Baird (@RonaldBaird84) pointed out to Springbok wing, Bryan Habana that if Harold Camping’s latest prediction that the world is going to end materializes, South Africans will no longer have to wallow in defeat.
“(Sic) @BryanHabana good news: if world ends today, then boks remain the world champs!” tweeted Baird.

A lot of tweeps expressed their frustration during and after Friday’s third place playoff:

Wilfredo Flores(@wilfredoflores ) tweeted: “(Sic) The main reason of Australia victory was the injury of Quade Cooper, sorry mate awful #rwc”

While Welsh fan, Carolyn Hitt (@carolyn_hitt) expressed her new concerns heading into the future: “(Sic) Goalkicking was the one thing I didn't worry about for Wales before the tournament. After the tournament I'm obsessed with it #RWC”

Picture of the Day:

Controversial Wallabies flyhalf, Quade Cooper (@QuadeCooper) found some time before their match with Wales to let the Twitter community know what they can look out for during the game.

Sadly, and ironically – there was not much to see, which was the trend for most of his tournament, as the New Zealand-born playmaker limped off after 21 minutes.

However, the picture he tweeted makes it our Picture of the Day:

“(Sic) Wearing my signed Jonah Lomu boots today ;) yeyay #runitstraight ha”
- perhaps now we may know why his foot was so suddenly rooted to the ground  - throughall the weight of expectation or perhaps the big name on the boots he had to fill.
