A more detailed article will follow when I’ve had time to digest my thoughts on another dismal England performance, but if anyone knows the answer to this, please let me know.
It was England’s first World Cup defeat for 8 years, but everyone saw it coming. Credit to South Africa – the Springboks played superbly, and the fact that England did not have one shot at goal is testament to their improved discipline.
So now we’ll be cheering on Wales to beat Australia and give us the quarter-final draw we were hoping for (assuming Samoa are dealt with!).
