Nope, i'll go with 'thrashing', it was utter bollocks. The management and senior players should hang their heads in shame. England have by far the greatest player and financial resources of any rugby playing union in the World. Not since the Woodward regime have they managed to string a decent set of results together.

OK, so how do you excuse away yesterdays shambles?! Last year was last year, they won the World Cup in '03, does that make playing like a pub team for the 2nd 40mins against the Welsh OK?

The 2 factors that got them to the final was the Ausies not having a 'vintage' team and the All Blacks somehow falling to bits against France. No way would England have beaten NZ and made it to the final.

I wouldn't say 'thrashed' either, but the game was there for the taking and England failed to take advantage of a very healthy lead and close the game down.
Same thing happened at Wembley in 1999 when Scott Gibbs scored that famous try.

I don't totally agree with that. They didn't come close to 'closing the game out'. The succumbed to a couple of sucker scores of their own making and then fell to bits. All teams make mistakes, decent teams keep possesion, gain yardage and undo the damage. They were made to look like idiots and not worth a cent of the fat packages they're now on.

No way would that debacle have occured under Johnson's leadership, Vickery now needs to start throwing his not inconsiderable weight around.
