A game of two halves

BBC: Italy 19–23 England

England laboured to their first Six Nations victory of 2008 but did nothing to answer the critics with a far from impressive display in Rome.

It was like last week all over again: England played great in the first half, and abysmally in the second.

"I don't get it," said Jen after the match. "They come back on after tea-time and they're a different team."

Shit! Do you think that's it? Do you think our lads are actually taking a proper tea break? While the Welsh and Italians were making do with a slice of orange, were our boys stuffing their fat faces with cake and scones and maybe a slice of apple pie?

More plum duff? Don't mind if I do!

I'll bet that's it!

  1. I was at the England/Wales match and had to leave halfway through the second half because of another commitment (I got in free anyway) it was looking good for an England win....so when I found out we'd lost I blamed myself - if only I'd stayed to the end. But I wasn't anywhere near Rome on Sunday.
