Rugby World Cup Profiles - England

In this lull before the Rugby World Cup, I have decided to follow the lead of fellow esteemed bloggers and publish my thoughts on each top ten team heading into the World Cup Competition and what I think their chances are. Here are my thoughts on England:

Current World Rank: no.7

Random cliché: Dad’s army

Murray Mexted likely to say of them: "He's looking for some meaningful penetration into the backline."

Stephen Jones likely to say of them: ‘England play rugby as it should be played, with attrition and dominance up front. The rest of the world – take heed.’

Main headlines of the local rag when they lose: 'We was robbed'.

Glamour boy of the team: Laurence Dallaglio

Greatest Moment in the last four years: Winning the 2003 Rugby World cup

Weakest Moment: Becoming world chumps in the following four years

Redeeming features: Andy Robinson – he let the rest of the world walk away with it.

Weak link: Andy Farrell

Incumbent star: Jonny who?

Rising star: Matthew Tait

Final lesson: Never trust a man in rugby circles that says his name is Andy
