All in all it was sad to see England out so early but I was delighted The All Blacks proving why they deserve to be world champs again and winning the final convincingly.

While the rugby was on I finally ate at a great little fish n chippie in Richmond next to Jamie's restaurant, it's a hit with the locals. Their battered fish …
