Dogged England Send Wallabies Home

A fantastic, dogged performance by England has made sure that the semi-finals will not be an all-Southern Hemisphere affair. They bounced back with great style for their first match against top-drawer opposition following their drubbing at the hands of the Springboks.

Like many others, I didn’t give England a prayer going into this, but as the game wore on I was on the edge of my seat roaring for them.

Hopefully the France-New Zealand match tonight will be as thrilling an affair.

(My blogging is curtailed a bit this weekend, as both Munstermad and myself have been deserted by our womenfolk, leaving us literally holding the babies. It’s hard to write 300 words full of wit and insightful analysis, when you have a fourteen-month-old wrecking all round you!)
