dear mr Bo Diddly
Do you have any real honset perspective on world rugby. You certanly have a short memory not withstanding the huge arogance the SH often tars us the NH with. Yes the AB are way out ahead but i can remeber a few months back to when England thrashed Australia the Scots put one over on the Bocks. several of the matches were close and hard faught. As the sothern hemisphere is not part of the 6 nations it maybe hard for the less observant of down under veiwers to apreciate the close faught nature of the competition. year after year, form is overtured and decades of grudge match history sturs the under dog to over run the favorite. I will not defend this weeks matches on the grounds of beatifull flowing technical rugby but if you can not cheer at the Italians grinding out an historic victory in Rome you are not a true fan of rugby. As to world supremacy only the world cup will decide that. I seem to remeber a northen hemisphere side in a lot of the semi finals and finals over the years so maybe things will be closer than you think in New Zealand

Ogonda you are of course right "on paper" but lets not forgot that anything can happen in a world cup. Eng were truely awful leading up to the last world cup and handed a spanking early on by the Boks but still made the final that's the great thing about the World Cup you never know!
Bodiddly you clearly no diddly squat! Eng get all this flak that we have proclaimed ourselves world beaters but no one in Eng actually has! We also get accused of being incredibly arrogant which faced with the arrogance of your little rant is a joke! Eng were a few cenitmetres away from scoring a second try which would have pretty much levelled the game so don't pretend that you gave us a beating! But please keep bigging yourselves up it will just make the fall or the more sweeter for the rest of us.

Gentlemen, England will come good in the 2015 World Cup. Not enough tests remaining prior to the World Cup 2011 for Johnno & Company to assemble a team of hardened players that can take on the All Blacks and Springboks. Do remember that the England Team that won the 2003 World Cup had beaten all the Southern Hemisphere teams home and away.

Ogonda worth noting that Eng have recorded better results in the 6 nations than either SA or Aus did in the AI. Write us off at your peril!

Timmo, don't be fooled into thinking that Ireland will be easy! If Scot can come to our back yard and push us that hard the Irish have every chance of winning on sat.

A draw would have been a fair result. Not much happening at the moment for the Northern Hemisphere Teams. Expect major beatings come World Cup 2011 from the Southern Hemisphere teams.

well done england, if you keep beating all comers in exactly the same way who cares. i remember 'boring', 'over the hill' england picking up their world cup medals in 2003. funny thing is this will give the delusional irish hopes a boost. keep your eyes in the prize!
