Even though the English newspapers are full of soccer and Lewis Hamilton this morning, the Springboks also featured.

Hamilton was the big news after he won the US Grand Prix and with that the world title.

In most of the newspapers there were only small pieces written about the Springboks loss to the All Blacks in the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup.

Coca-Cola is one of the main sponsors of this event that took place in London the last few weeks.

It was only The Times who wrote a double page on the South Africans defeat. The Springboks lost the game 20-18. New-Zealand will now take on Australia on Saturday. Australia beat Argentina by 29-15.

South Africa will play for the third place on Friday in their match against Argentina.

You went to see what the newspapers said about South Africa's game against New Zealand.

The Times wrote that the All Blacks-coach Steve Hansen believes his captain, Richie McCaw is the victim of a vendetta from a minority people who are jealous of him.

This comes after McCaw was accused of striking Francois Louw with his elbow. After further investigation it was found that it was McCaw's hip that hit Louw's shoulder. McCaw was cleared and it was confirmed he would not be cited. Hansen said it was because McCaw stands out in the game that he is made a target.

Daily Express wrote it was McCwa's calm and cool way of doing that kept the All Blacks on course.

Daily Mail and Daily Mirror also wrote about Steve Hansen and that McCaw won't be cited.
