Had me very worried for a moment there. Had to re-check the match schedule. Phew!

Ireland
England
Boks
NZ

The boks will do it if it rains and they play dirty. I am not surprised if all want England gone but it makes each win better.

England do not deserve to win on the performance so far. Sad but true.

Sad they couldn't even pick up those points on offer at end of first half. Never mind.

They were OK in the first 5 mins and I permitted myself to breathe....even before the first French try I was comfortable...

But...sloppy handling has been an offence not just discipline.

They take the ball up a few times - then fail to get the ball out to the rest of the 3/4 and use it...

Oh well - I guess the tournament is over isn't it?

England are pretty much guaranteed avtrip home tonight now and surely the Wobblies will follow them tomorrow...
