So many players injured...opportunities for some of the younger players - be interesting to see who shines for England Sinckler, Harrison and Hughes all look good prospects.

Lots of competition in the backs.

I like the bit when the big fellas move the ball five yards and all fall on it for five minutes and you cant see whats happening until the referee blows for a penalty that doesnt help anyone and they kick the ball out for a throw in and do it again. Magical.

Interesting you have to go back to the 70s for a decent passage of play

Forward pass too. Shouldnt count.

I love all of that, but my favourite bit is where the camera pans in on those 4 investment bankers in the crowd wearing flat caps and Barbour coats....the happiness on their ruddy cheeked faces makes me proud to be English

Come on our well bred, well nourished big lads from posh schools, do your bit for Blighty !

Love competitive sport, ill watch anything. Cant get to grips with this thoe, the ref blows his fucking whistle all the time for god knows what.


The 7's in the Olympics (is it even the same game?) was really good to watch, really exciting stuff.
