No. Seriously.

:lol: :lol:


Bookmarked

On current form/trajectory the World Cup is open for about 5 teams to win ..... excluding shit house France obviously

2007 should have taught us that anything is possible, with a bit of luck.

If Scotland Win today and next weekend and England lose, they'll overtake England in the rankings. TBh, fair reflection of where both teams are.

You can't blame the coach for that. The saffers wanted it more.

Utter desperation. Cipriani will simply wave SA's to the tryline.


They can’t continue with today’s selection, just not working at all.

Well, not that I countenance it, but surely you have to move Farrell back to 10? At least that might allow you to play in the right parts of the park and SA haven't exactly defended anything when under pressure.


Farrell isn't a Test 10.

I don't think he's a particularly good 12.

Slade is shit.

A bit unfair. More the Rassie effect. Knew there would be an immediate improvement when he came aboard.

Why did England spend the week in Durban, instead of staying at altitude?

How much of an impact did that make?

Apparently it doesn't really help.

Wtf Ben Youngs.
Eddie Jones is a plum and this series of losses are not a new thing for him.

Beast must be the most likeable player in this squad.

The whole of South Africa (myself included) loves him to bits. By far the crowd favourite.... deservedly so.

Ah shit, that's not good.
This could well be the most testing week Eng will face leading up to the RWC.
There's going to be a lot of media scrutiny, hope they can hold it together.

Gave it the most patronising “We’re gutted and will go away and work on what went wrong. Bye.” And then walked off.

I was listening to the match on 5live and in the first half Matt Dawson was almost orgasmic when he talked about the England back line but as the match wore on he really changed his tune. Their try scoring capabilities seemed to have near deserted them today.

Gayle: Still a lot of penalties this week.
Eddie: These are different sorts of penalties from last week.

She had the moral high ground after Young’s petulance ...... and then she makes Jones look sympathetic by behaving like a complete wagon herself

She had free reign to go after him given the Young’s interview. If EJ had walked away as well, the media would have been all over them so she knew she could push it.

Seems to be an English media trait to sense blood in the water and then see if they can secure a kill

I'd imagine the latter.

The entire English team looked on the edge of losing their cool all game. Faf was making it his business to keep them riled up too
