Perhaps a defeat will work good for us in the long run, rewarding us more than what we could have achieved in the long run had we won the Australia game.

I'm not sure how many players were inexperienced though. But we definitely need two decent kickers for fly-half!
England have lost almost every game since the world cup...

James Cracknell is taking a 1 year break and then rowing in Beijing, thoughts?

I dont see how he can maintain his fitness over the year for it to be undetrimental to his beijing performance.

Matt pinsent is retiring as well! Looks like we wont get gold next time around

I *hate* this patronising attitude to lower division clubs :mad: Does he not realise football isn't just a business?

I can't believe that the Olympics are going to Beijing. It's an absolute joke.

Seriously, it's disgusting.

Because China is a country with serious human rights issues. As the Olympics is supposed to be some sort of celebration of human.. "goodness", I really don't think its appropriate to hold it in China.

Maybe holding the olympics will help China.

But each game back then was very close. Our last game with the Aussies was a walk over.
The Aussies have been pissing all over us for the last 20 years. One more time won't make any difference

Just read that profits from the tournament are thought to be around 2 million.

Not bad eh?

and if charlie-boy had this mind of getting the ball between the posts; no on the other number 10 in the stand; england would've strolled it by 12 points. either eay, i don't think eddie jones should be too pleased.

So you would have the same issues with the US holding the Olympics, on the basis of Iraq and the Patriot Acts?

Cracknell was always going to take a year off whether they won or lost; he wanted to spend more with his kid and his missus has been on his back for a while about how they never see each other. If he does come back - which he might not, you never know - I'd expect him to compete in the Eight or scull in the Quad, not in one of the smaller boats.

yeah, she (bev turner?) did a big double page article in one of the broadsheets about how she was an "Olympic widow", quite interesting actually.
