Is it bad of me to always be thinking whether Armitage shanks it? When he kicks, obviously.
Who was man of the match in the end, by the way?

Vimes tells it how it is:
We were crap but won. Argies will knock the Sweaties out.
& I don't know, but has to be Youngs if there's a god in heaven. Made the difference when he came on.
Tindall at inside isn't working either; his first instinct is to take contact and (whilst better than Hape's) hasn't got a test kicking game.
It's no coincidence Wilkinson has always looked a better player when he's had a thinking #12 outside him. His old mucker Will Greenwood (who knows a thing or two about playing #12, despite wearing 13) reckons Toby Flood is the best inside centre in the country, so that could be an option.
wtf, horrible kicking.

Lawes has been cited for the knee to Ledesma. WC over? Odd bit of thuggery aside, I thought he was awesome against the Argies.
I think in general, England were much better in possession than people are giving credit for. I'm not saying they were good, but when the ball was recycled for a few phases, rather then Wilkinson just threading a kick through, we looked just about alright.
My guess is that he'll get two games.
Our next two games being Georgia and Romania, of course.
Reportedly if Lawes is found guilty, he'll face a minimum of three weeks' suspension. He certainly didn't intend to knock out Ledesma - his knee striking wasn't deliberate unlike Cooper on McCaw - so it'll be interesting if hes suspended.
Bah - Cooper on McCaw was compeltely accidental - same way McCaw playing halfback for the opposition is accidental.
Avatar not by choice.
So despite the offence holding a penalty of between 3 and 12 weeks, Lawes has got off with 2 weeks which is a little odd; I don't think he deserved much more than 2 weeks though thats interesting they've somewhat bended the rules for him.
