Well, the tension is beginning to mount as we are less than 24 hours from England (hopefully) winning the Rugby World Cup in the Aussies’ own back yard!
Sometimes I think the Aussies are right calling us “whinging poms” judging some of the things that have been said about England’s game against France last week. “Boring kicking game” moaned the critics, but they’ve obviously never played rugby. I have and in torrential rain when passing the ball was like passing a bar of soap.
And have they no appreciation of the kicker’s art? The wind was swirling around the Telstra Dome, making kicking a nightmare, and yet Jonny Wilkinson managed to kick five penalties and three drop goals. That is accuracy of some magnitude.
Well, if England win 3-0, I’ll be satisfied, because winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing!
