Rugby World Cup 2019

Recommended Posts

It was the rugby equivalent of Dave Bassett’s Sheffield Utd. 

The Sinckler injury so early was a killer. Difficult as it would have been to change a team that demolished the All Blacks it is horses for courses and the line up didn’t work.

That was about as disappointing as it gets wasn't it? 

You'd expect us to have a real go in a final and at least go down all guns blazing but we never ever got into the game in the whole 90 minutes.

They always play like that. We surely knew what was going to happen but simply couldn't cope with their physicality and power. The coach needs to ask questions of himself.

That said, the better team, by a mile, won and won deservedly. Credit to them.

I think this result will hang like a big cloud other team for some time. To have comprehensively beaten the best team in the world and then choked so badly when they were overwhelming favourites  on the biggest night of their careers will give some of these players nightmares for years.

England have done amazingly well.  To beat both the Ausies and New Zealand en route was great stuff.  In the end, one game too far but no disgrace and this group will be back.
