Tough first match - just enough

Flipping heck!!  There was more than one moment where I thought we were going to end up losing that, anyway finally England emerge victorious from their open Rugby World Cup game.

Argentina were really up for - as ever against us.  They came out and gave us no time - but then we weren't helping ourselves with the penalties we gave away.  Both teams kicking was poor - have you ever seen Jonny miss so many and by so much at times - I wonder if it being a closed stadium had something to do with that?  Don't know.

But at last Youngs on and we had a bit more pace and passion and a try came and that was it.

Right so still in with a chance - but boy we need to play better than that.


  1. It was so close but I always thought England would win in the end. I'm glad it didn't turn into a thrashing though as Argentina didn't deserve that.

    Has johnny left his kicking boots at home?

    Let's hope the S African kicker struggles tomorrow too.

  2. Sorry F; wrong shaped ball for me.
