Advantages Great team, excellent squad, my fave player (Jason Robinson) and a whole lot more
Disadvantages Need 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 best Northern Hemisphere team out there. We can beat France, Italy, Scotland (always a tough match), Ireland you name it, we can beat it on our good day. But then you get the three side who England can only beat on a really good day (New Zealand, Australia and South Africa). This doesn't mean to say that they are all better sides than England, oh no certainly not, its just that the statistics are favoured more towards those three teams when it comes to playing England. But lately things are starting to change. If you have seen any of the Lions Tour you will knoe the lions lost the series in Australia 2-1, which so a northern hamisphere can beat a southern hemisphere side, and considering that the majority of the lions squad was mainly English I think that the current Engliand side could beat any team in the world when they are on form. The main reason why i think the Lions lost was the fact that they beat Australia in a way which is un for-seeable that it went to there heads and they though it would have been easy, but you can never go easy on any international side. Austraila are also a side that will punish you if you punish tem, they were wounded from the first test and bounced back to save themselves, never underestimate a wounded animal.With players like Balshaw, Robinson (star of the lions tour for me), Johnson, Healey, Wilkinson (one of the best if not the best Fly half in the world), Matt Dawson (one of the best scrum halfs in the world). There are alot more talented players within the Engalnd squad, i could churn out a huge long list of amazing talent that is available to Clive Woodward for selection.
Right i have been asked to add a bit about Key players, you know the players who could win the games for England. Well i must say Engalnd have alot of key players, they do have some players who have to be there and who provide a stagle all round balance to the team. The majoer key players in my view are the following:Martin Johson, Lock Forward and Captain, being the captain and a senior member of the teams he provides a boost that the team need. He is a great player with knowledge of the game, very experienced and level headed.
Lawrence Dallaghlio (i hope thats splet right), No 8 (can play flanker), Lawrence is an exceptional player, he used to be captain, but has his captains position take away from him because of a scandel (which i won't talk about as he deserves respect). He is an exceptional player who is a figure head of the team. He has great ability on the field as a rugby player and an athlete.Matt Dawson, a great scrum half you is quick with the ball and who likes to tap and go when Englan get a penalty. He will punish slow defenses who don't get back quickly and has great awareness for spotting opertunities and ways through defense.
