anyone watching? anyone care?
Again, sterling singing from the boys!
I also sort of hope England lose, because it would mean a lot to Tonga and whoever goes through is going to get knocked out straight away anyway
England are steady but not massively threatening, but that late try might mean there is too much for Tonga to do. England should be able to close the game out after about 55/60 minutes.
England will probably lose to Australia.
But that isn't a given, cos Australia aren't a New Zealand.
if England has to play anyone, Australia are probably the best choice, cos their scrum is shit. Even when England are playing badly, their pack are always ok.
but the Aussies should get just enough ball to win. I don't think it'll be one way traffic, though.
pretty happy with england performance. gritty and pragmatic enough to win, but expansive enough to show we have an attacking threat when given the opportunity. tonga were obviously knackered tho. fair play to them also, the punch far above their weight (not literally)
