I don't wish to be critical of St. Johno....but why the fcuk is he picking so many Wasps players?
I thought he said he was going to pick "on form, not reputation".
England need a kick up the arrse and stop making so many errors. Plus the penalty count was too high (again!). Plus Danny boy gave away another try(again). Plus we can't score trys (again). Plus we keep kicking the ball away (again).....
Cipriani is not up to standard ( at least at the moment ) He should get his head down, keep out of clubs and stop being a flash harry. Jonny is still the best fly half that England has. Not too sure that Flutey is up to scratch. Noon is hard as nails but lacks flair. Is Tait injured?
Today was shocking. Too many errors, too much indiscipline
The only plus is that England are at the start of a rebuild under new management. Johnson has got a decent crew around him, and will get there.
Was a bloody good game to start off with though I thought, good rugby. Shame NZ's scrum half (first one on, forget his name) is a retard really. Soon as he was changed, the game upped its pace and intensity. Second half was crap for Wales, but can't say they did badly in the first half.
I was at the Wales match, why two different Wales teams had to turn up for each half I do not know, however the ref should not have allowed play to continue when Wales had 2 players down injured and the poor Pysio getting hit on the head with the ball didn't count as it interfering with play. Still bloody good piss up!! Hopefully have more luck against Austrailia next weekend ( tickets for that one arriving monday!)
S_R, don't bring hemispheres into it mate. He gets away with it no matter who is the ref. He's good, bloody good, but it boils my blood to see what he gets away with.
You notice that Rodney So'oialo infringes a heap too? Not saying that other loosies don't, most spend their every waking moment figuring out how to push past the boundaries of the laws. But So'oialo gets pinged a lot more than McCaw does.
