    The worrying thing is, is that SA didn't even play that well, du Preez had an awesome game.

    Excellent game from du Preez, good to see him holding off the challenge from Ruan Pienaar. England were woeful from what I seen, literally had nothing on attack. Unfortunate injury for Robinson, hope he comes right very soon, but it's not likely.

    Indeed. South Africa really didn’t get out of first gear last night and didn’t need to but how anyone expected England to win this game is probably gone in the head. To win you need to score points, how can you do that when you have no backs?
    And when you consider that the majority of the back line wouldn’t beat CJ van der Linde in a sprint, it comes as no surprise to see that England were never going to trouble the scorers in ‘open play’.

    What makes me laugh the most is that Brian Ashton came into the job saying England were now going to play expansive rugby, what a crock of ****e.

    Dire is the word.

    I mean, I don't mind losing, God knows having been an English sports fan for over a quarter of a century I'm used to it by now, but to see such an inept & gutless display from the nominal world champions is pretty hard to stomach. We (with the admirable exception of the sadly hamstrung Robinson) never looked like troubling the yarps. I thought the moment that summed up the whole match was when Billy, having made a clean break, pirouetted fully 360 looking for support but there was none. He's too good for us, really.

    Ashton's thinking is just wrongheaded at times too, WTF did he take off Rees when clearly we needed pace & quick ball & left on the clearly out of his depth Easter? Moody to 6 (where he plays for the English champions) & Corry to 8 (ditto) was the move.

    Samoa FTW. Put us out of our misery.

    I thought Easter was decent, from what I seen. Lewis Moody is the best loose forward England have IMO, should be starting every game.

    Decent, but really limited. Big, but little pace & ordinary distribution.

    Anyway, fair play to Tonga. They've just earned the gratitude of all of English Rugby.

    Is it just me or is Bob Skinstad horrible over-rated?
