I reckon the one emotion everyone in this country is feeling right now, even more than the ecstasy of winning, even more than basking in glory of being crowned world champions, is actually pure relief.

Relief at not choking, relief at not having to face being the laughingstock of world rugby yet again. Relief that those 30 men who have given their heart, soul and bodies to this bruising game finally got the chance to celebrate being the best team in the world.

You have done us all proud.

It doesn't matter that it wasn't a beautiful game to watch, or even that the scales were only just tipped in our favour at the end. None of that matters now.

For now we'll just applaud. Our team. Our boys.

And enjoy a confetti angel or two.
