Don't post spoilers on thread titles!

I already knew the score, but loads of folks on other parts of the world might not have having recorded the game for later viewing.

Awesome display (first half anyway).

Thats as good a display as I have seen in a long time and we scored a few tries! Apparently we are the leading try scorers in the competition now...

Stuff the sweaties next week and then paper over a pretty average tournament, but at least progress... Wales and Ireland at Twickenham next year and trips to France (where we do pretty well) and Scotland (where we always seem to choke) and hey who knows a GS???

Yep, you never know, at least there's a sign of improvement as long as we don't go downhill again next week.

It also means a couple of good displays might help increase the English contingent to join the Lions in SA?

There wont be too many an English man me thinks - Tom Croft, Vickery, Shaw, Kennedy, Worsley, Ellis, Flutey, Armitage (?), Tindall (?) would be the only ones which on present form I would take and if fit Jonny. Another good week against the Scots though and that could be upped to a few more...

I still rate Tait (sheer poetry) but he only ever seems to get used as an impact player these days after a few dodgy starts a while ago.

He's damn quick and can make the breaks.

I think he has been a bit unfairly treated, as he is a very good player, never really has a huge impact from the bench in a losing cause, but still capable of a bit of magic....

I read this morning that Wilko is maybe leaving Newcastle for France which would probably put an end to any hope of reviving his England career, should he remain injury free.

A real shame as he was pure class in his day - would have been great to see him in a Lions shirt again too, but also very unlikely.
