Droy was my hero

Rugby WC 2019

There has to be some comment on the England NZ game yesterday morning.  Terrific entertainment.  Thanks to the ITV directors they filled all those interminable pauses with clips of England players knocking down NZ runners so in an 80 min game, we got a good 2 hours of entertainment.

I have seen Itoje look magnificent in a standard England team a number of times.  This time he was magnificent in a magnificent XV.

Look forward to the final but I doubt there will be a better Rugby game (for an Englishman) for a decade or more.

Yes England played very well and kept those All-Blacks quiet, incredible intensity and discipline. Also two tries ruled out through minor technicalities. 

I noticed an interesting point from Eddie Jones advising the team practise and train according to the referee of the match. Their training takes into account his preferences. That surprised me.

I don't think the final against South Africa will be a push-over, don't like their gamesmanship yet they have a lot of technical skill.

Oh England Oh England

What did you do

You were really poo

And we should all sue

Because that was a joke

You've got no yoke

And we can't even soak

And ruddy toak

Losing like that showed us all up

You didn't come close to winning the cup

An embarrasment to a nation

A disgrage of the ages

You showed all the wrong pages

Sack them all I say

Don't even give them pay

Because the South African were supreme

And played like a dream

Oh if England had played Wales

They would been left chasing tails

And it would have ended in fails

For Wales are good

They would have given England the fud

They came close against South Africa

While England were trumped on

And well and truely gone
