Rugby World Cup 2015


Engloand v Australia

Twickenham Saturday 3rd October 2000 kick off BST

England Rugby can't get any bigger than this match!  It is do or die for England this weekend, they just have to beat Australia at Twickenham otherwise it is thank you and good night!  I have never been so nervous for a game of rugby.  The RWC of 2003 was nervy but I had total faith in the class of 2003.  This group are up and down and frankly do not inspire confidence.

Having said all of that the 16th man/woman will be the crowd at Twickenham - so come on England fans shout your heads off, support the team like never before.

Once more unto the breach my freinds, once more....

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!' on horse

England: Mike Brown; Anthony Watson, Jonathan Joseph, Brad Barritt, Jonny May, Owen Farrell, Ben Youngs; Joe Marler, Tom Youngs, Dan Cole, Joe Launchbury, Geoff Parling, Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw, Ben Morgan.

Poor side in my opinon. No Slade, No Nowell on the bench. The 4/5/6 axis is just to weak.

Now imagine we had the following running out...

1 Marler
2 Hartley
3 Cole
4 Launchbury
5 Lawes
6 Ewers
7 Kvesic
8 Ben Morgan

9 Youngs
10 Slade
11 May
12 Burgess
13 Joseph
14 Watson
15 Brown

I would be FAR more enthusiastic.
