Yeah I thought that's what had happened but may well be wrong - what irked me more was how slow England were to react

Pet peeve here. It didn't take England long to react. The Italians did it twice in the first 15 minutes or so, then started doing it some more. Around the 20th minute England did a number of pick and goes and short balls (exactly what they needed to), generated great front foot ball, sent it out wide, and Brown and May screwed up blowing an easy try. England adapted about as quickly can be expected with regards to the new basic approach, the problem is we just played awfully. Would have helped if the ref had got it right with the calls too, since at times there were definite rucks, then the Italians all pulled out, waited a few seconds, and ran offside, and the ref had forgotten it was a ruck already.
