Unofficial England Rugby - November 2005 In Review. We look back on a busy month of Investec Challenge matches, interviews and our pundits comments.

 November 2005 - In Review!

England Rugby in November - Again an action packed month for us all to enjoy our Rugby.  The New Look England on show for the Investec Autumn Internationals against Australia, New Zealand and Samoa.

 Our resident Pundit Ed Budge kicked the month off again with his look forward to the Autumn Internationals and he was not at all happy with our leader Andy Robinson  ....... "I must apologise: this month’s article was supposed to be about how the England rugby team can progress, into, through, and beyond the upcoming Investec Challenge matches against Australia, New Zealand and Samoa.  Sadly, however, Andy Robinson has had a word in the ear of the dictionary division of the RFU, and progress has subsequently been removed from the Twickenham vocabulary for the foreseeable future" and there is more here....... England - Ed Speaks Again


England Rugby Supporters Club (ERSC) - advanced travel information for those supporters going to the Rugby World Cup in France 2007 and the RBS Six Nations 2006.  Check out the information here...... England RWC07 Travel Information


  And our Claire was at HQ hobnobbing with the England Captain!   "Tonight I had the opportunity to pass on our best wishes to Martin Corry and his team. On behalf of everybody on the site, I wished Martin well for the Investec Challenge series. Martin was surprised and delighted and thanked us for our support." Claire meets Martin Corry
