England head coach Eddie Jones is wary of South Africa ahead of their clash in a highly anticipated final.
"The only thing we are really worried about is how the Springboks turn up on Saturday,” said Jones.
"They won a tough semi-final and when you are in the final of the World Cup you have done a lot of good things right. 
"They are a massively aggressive forward pack and they played their stronger team in the second half as opposed to the first half."

Meanwhile, South Africa recorded a 19-16 victory over Wales in the second semi-final clash which was played last weekend.
It was their fifth victory in this year's competition having registered four wins and one defeat before they faced Wales. 
They are looking to overcome England and clinch their third Rugby World Cup trophy having finished third in the previous competition. 
The last match between England and South Africa was on the 3rd of November 2018.
England recorded a 12-11 victory over South Africa in the 2018 Autumn International match.
