Time will tell!!
Any predictions? Or just waiting to see how the wind blows..as usuall?
A much as I love rugby and England and so wished to be proved wrong, I'm afraid that the writing has been on the wall for the last 4 years.
The gap between the N and S hems is currently as great as ever. The ABs, and lately Australia, are playing rugby on another level. For England to have had any genuine chance in this RWC, they had to be consistently the best side in Europe, they haven't been. England have not been dominant in the 6N throughout Lancaster's tenure.
England have some supremely talented players, but they so lack direction, confidence and belief. Robshaw is not decisive or clear thinking enough as skipper, the midfield selection muddle has been a joke. Burgess was brought in too early etc,etc. The press are now going to deservedly tear Lancaster and co. apart and we have to now wait another four years FFS!
Have just read this.
