Anyone but Wales for me

That was embarrassing. England have just given up now.

Were done 32-12.

What a turgid game.

We were odds on favourites to win and have been absolutely smashed. We have completely bottled it. Wow.

Their pack have dominated ours. Everything else has flowed from that.

We knew it was the key area, theyre just better in the scrum and in the breakdown.

Give South Africa some credit rather than we bottled it. The have executed their game plan to perfection much the same as we did v NZ. Saffers defence has been outstanding and that has allowed them to dominate and get some tries late on as icing on the cake. We haven't covered ourselves in glory but Saffers didn't give us a chance.
Well done South Africa.

Handling has ****ed us. Keep knocking it on and giving scrums and you’re playing into SA hands. They’ll get a penalty at the scrum every time they choose. Been chasing the game throughout.

Glad ITV are happy for SA to help heal a country, not like we have any divisions of our own is it?

It's ok cos we deserve something apparently for turning up.

SA are spoilers and we played straight into their hands, dominating the pack is one thing but we couldn't pass for :thdn: for the entire match

Lot of stray passes for sure. In that long set of phases when England looked threatening the Boks defence was unbelievable.
