    ..According to the BBC....Jamie Noon has been ruled out of the remainder of the World Cup with a knee ligament injury...but there is still hope that Jason Robinson will play some further part in the tournament...Jonny Wilkinson and Olly Barkley should be fit for Saturdays game against Samoa...
    And I recall my fall from grace, another time another place..

    Flood replaces Noon.

    Bit of an odd replacement isn't it? Thought Flood was a stand off? For the best anyway. Noon is dire.

    Rectifying an earlier error for mine. As I whinged previously 3 outside centres in a 30 man squad was well OTT. Flood can play inside centre too tho anyway, does it for Newcastle on the rare occasions Jonny's fit.

    If nothing else he's young & might at least learn from the experience of playing in on the biggest stage, unlike Catt & Farrell.

    It also allows the commentators to make watered-down puns.
    Or something.

    "We all hate England" - John O'Neill

    Today's Unreconstructed Ocker Blow-Hard Award goes to the ARU's president John O'Neill. From Planet Rugby. "It doesn't matter whether it's cricket, rugby union, rugby league - we all hate England"

    Feeling the love John, mate.

    Seriously tho, one quarter-way passable performance & he's worried enough to mouth off? Interesting.

    Interesting that he should mention league when Australia have played "England" at league a whole 3 times in the last 30 years. Got to hold a pretty decent grudge for that.

    Anyway, back on topic: worst ****.

    While I don't agree with O'Neill's sentiments, a whole heap of middle-aged Kiwi's do. "Hate those whinging Pom's" is usually uttered several times a day when talking about England's sporting prospects.

    Also, Johnny has the right to complain. I don't see people lynching Carter even though he's been whinging more about the balls.

    Lewsey broken; Abendanon called up.

    From the Beeb. Nice touch to call up one of our tame yarpies I feel. Rotten luck for Lewsey tho, just as he was playing himself into a bit of form.

    Unlucky England although the better team won. I'm just happy I made this thread.

    Dallaglio: Ashton turned England into pub team

    From the BBC. Scathing stuff it is too.

    Dallaglio: "Head coach of the England team demands management skills that Brian does not have. We had a head coach who wanted one thing, other coaches who wanted other things. The players hadn't a clue what was going on."

    "Somehow we'd managed to turn our World Cup campaign into a Monty Python sketch - called The Life of Brian"


    Christ knows what he'd have said if we hadn't made the final. Small word of caution for Big Lol or any players who underplay Ashton's role in our campaign: I remember Gareth Thomas saying something very similar about Mike Ruddock's part in their 2005 Grand Slam & look what's happened to the Welsh since.

    We didn't get where we did because of Ashton IMO. Basically after the 36-0 v SA, the players really had a think about how they were playing and did it themselves.

    Interesting comments from Dallaglio. Quite a few All Blacks are biting their tongues about Henry in case he gets reappointed.

    Dean Richards has been pretty scathing back to those elder statesmen who've voiced their opinions.
