England do like to do things the hard way...

Absolutely right. Even the great Johnny W could not kick his goals. Just as well the opposition kickers were just as bad.

Oh God, That was truly horrible to watch. I know they say a win's a win, but I reckon the Argentinians have a right to feel hard done-by. England need to buck up their ideas very quickly or they'll be on the way home, very soon.

Wales are giving South Africa a bit of a fright just now. The Boers won't like that at all:)

That was far better than England's opening game, must be something to do with the shirt numbers not coming off...

I'm Welsh......Boy did we go close against the strongest team in or pool....Cymru Am Builth!! :))

You should have won that, Wales deserved to have won it, but they do say that the winners are only counted at the finish.

England got the right result in the end, but they certainly didn't deserve it. I couldn't believe how many penalties they conceded through sheer laxity. All teams have been warned that the tournament refs won't allow any leeway on offsides, so they've been warned.

We can only hope that this was simply a touch of first match jitters, and that they'll settle down before the next match. But if Jonny can't get his kicking up to par, then Toby Flood is going to have to step in.

Although, it's a bit interesting that Rodriguez had so much trouble, as well. After all, he's not a bad kicker.

I wonder if the totally sealed nature of the new Otago stadium had anything to do with it (although, for the life of me, I can't think what)? Guess we'll see when a few more kickers try to knock the ball over.

If I were a rugger fan, I would support Scotland,(obviously),and all of the teams that England have got to I being too patriotic? Give me round balls,that behave themselves.How are the Scots doing anyway?
