Rugby World Cup: England can beat anyone, says Will Carling

England can beat anyone at this autumn's World Cup, according to former captain Will Carling.
Stuart Lancaster's side missed out on the Six Nations title on points difference to Ireland on Saturday, despite beating France 55-35.
But it was an opening-day 21-16 win in Wales that impressed Carling.
"England will learn that if they go out every game with the intensity they did against Wales, then they can beat anyone," Carling told Sportsweek.

The 49-year-old, who captained England to the World Cup final in 1991, added: "They've got to be able to do that week in, week out. A major plus is a great strength-in-depth in the squad, which probably no other northern hemisphere side has."
England, the 2003 champions, play Australia, Wales, Fiji and Uruguay in Pool A at the World Cup, starting on 18 September, with the top two going through to the quarter-finals.

Nice spin, but we can ignore that.

I think he's probably right about strength in depth.

They don't have to beat anyone, they to beat everyone, apart from one pool game.
