    Firstly, welcome to the forum, Norman Hurst. I wonder if you were at the Rec on Saturday?

    In my opinion it wouldn’t take much to get boos out of England supporters after a loss of that magnitude.
    All serves to deflect attention away from England players’ slight on the award ceremony.

    The French were fined £10,000 for their approach.

    Presumably that regulation was put in place because some challanges have gotten right in the faces of the New Zealanders.
