"...watching not playing!! The thing is, England as a team aren’t that good. They do well, but they aren’t the best in the world, which is just the same as every other sport really! ..." Read review

England sail pasta Italy in try orgy

AdvantagesSensational 2nd Half Rugby

DisadvantagesComplacency could cost dear

"...a lacklustre, tetchy affair and England were lucky to go in at the interval 10 points to the good. But in the second half they were a simply awesome attacking force as the Italians capitulated under immense English pressure, conceding a massive 47 points without reply. A criticism often levelled at England is that when they get ahead in a game they lack the "killer instinct" often displayed by their Southern Hemisphere counterparts. Not so on Saturday ..."

Maybe the Best

AdvantagesBest team ever

DisadvantagesMay choke

"...a difficult birth ensuing, the England man has proved that family does come above sport in stark contrast to Nasser Hussein taking his pregnant partner on the cricketer’s tour of Oz. I thought that this was a nice finish to an excellent weekend for the national team. In retrospect, the previous encounter at Twickenham had proved a false comparison, what with the barbarous tactics of the Boks that day resulting in them playing the game out with ..." Read review

Time to move on.... and set the game on fire

AdvantagesGood Strong Base, WORLD CHAMPIONS!!

DisadvantagesNo Johnson, Negative Image, Injury List

"...last few seconds didn't matter, England could hold out. I remember the feeling as everyone at my rugby club went mad, first at the sight of the drop goal, then the final whistle and then as Englands greatest captain lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy above his head, pure elation! Looking back on that night now though it needs to be looked at in perspective, the final was possibly one of the greatest contests ever seen on a rugby field, and the game against ..." Read review

Must get better

AdvantagesOfficially the worlds best when we beat Australia on Saturday

DisadvantagesGot to do it when it counts

"...more I like than watching England beat New Zealand but lets be honest it wasnt the most convincing performance ever. 31-28 against a weakened New Zealand at home is nothing to shout about. A win is a win fair enough but will there be the same result in Australia in the world cup? Not if we dont get better it wont. Look at the facts of the recent match. New Zealand missed two fairly simple penalties at goal. They looked sharper and more direct in ..." Read review
