“Rugby”

published 15/07/2001

ProSee op

ContraSee op

They make you play Rugby at school, which I think is a little nasty! Imagine the scene now. It's freezing cold, spitting with rain. I'm standing in the middle of a field, shivering in my shorts and T-shirt. Then someone throws the ball at me, I catch it and freeze. 15 people start charging at me...

ProSensational 2nd Half Rugby

ContraComplacency could cost dear

Mama Mia!I bet the Italians wished they'd got on their scooters at half time, made their way to the nearest coffee house and sank a few cappucinos. To steal a tired cliche from another well-known sport this was certainly a game of 2 halves. The first half was a lacklustre, tetchy affair and...

“Maybe the Best”

published 20/10/2003

ProBest team ever

ContraMay choke

From hero to...erm...hero in the space of 24 hours. Having scored the try that secured England’s victory over a stubborn Springbok team, Will Greenwood flies home to be with his wife. With a difficult birth ensuing, the England man has proved that family does come above sport in stark contrast to...

“Must get better”

ProOfficially the worlds best when we beat Australia ...

ContraGot to do it when it counts

There is nothing 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...

ContraNeed to keep a cool head, and get the basics right

Now i love a nice bit of rugger action, and there nothing better than seeing England giving someone a good stuffing. Sports wise us English probably have more success in rugby (well recently). We are the main contenders for the six nations all the time, and we certainly are with out a doubt the...

ProGood Strong Base, WORLD CHAMPIONS!!

ContraNo Johnson, Negative Image, Injury List

So there it was. As the ball sailed through the posts on that wet Australian night in November, we all knew what had just happened, as did Jonny Wilkinson and Will Greenwood as they leapt in the air and hugged each other....England were World Champions, the last few seconds didn't matter, England...

I watched the recent series with home games against Australia, Argentina and South Africa. Three Southern Hemisphere squads. Three of the best squads in the world...and how many of the games did England win? All three! I was feeling a bit down when the Australian game was on. That very morning...

“The Sweetest of Chariots”

ProSuperb teamplay, handling, tackling.....

ContraTendancy to go to sleep a little

I come from a rugby loving family. My uncle played for Quins, my dad, 2 brothers and myself have all played rugby at various levels. At the moment my dad and I help to run a mini rugby club for kids. Today I went to Twickenham, with my dad, to watch England V Italy. Everyone was expecting a big...

ProFront row

ContraLack of creativity

Why did England beat Australia? England dominated in the front row so much that they put two props out of the game. This meant that Australian ball from set pieces was scrappy and England had a great base to attack from. England will only return to their winning ways if they continue to dominate...

England put on an impressive, highly professional performance today to beat Wales 44-15 in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff. I enjoyed watching the match and thought that there was a terrific atmosphere. as could have been expected Wales threw everything at England in the first few minutes and...

“It had to happen one day”

published 20/02/2001

ProBrilliant players, exciting style

ContraNone

There you go, after all this time, England finally has a Rugby team that can beat all comers. We never thought it would happen. There's been so many false dawns over the years when inflated egos finally got what was coming to them against first class opposition, but it really does look like we've...

“England versus Ireland”

published 17/10/2001

ProIt's international rugby

ContraWrong time of year

I have been understandably disappointed by the number of sports events that have succumbed to the wroth of nature and evil forces. Last year both the weather and the dreaded foot and mouth hounded my rugby season. I played my last home match of the 2000/2001 season in November of 2000!! Added to...

ProThe best man for the job

ContraNot British

In my opinion Graham Henry is by far the correct choice to be the next coach of The Lions. Ian McGeechan would have been an excellent choice as he has the advantage of being British but as soon as he ruled himself out there was only one man for the job. Graham Henry has led Wales from being a...

“Right to Recognition”

published 01/07/2000

The support of English sport seems to be inversely related to the achievements of the national side. Why is it that football recieves so much coverage, when the team plays appallingly? England were knocked out of the first round of the world cup because they played badly. Stop making excuses for...

How refreshing is it to know that England posseses a national side that has the capacity to beat any other team on the planet on their day. England under the coaching of Clive Woodward have evolved into a dominant force in world rugby that is only too obvious to anybody who has seen England play...
