    Forwards were pathetic. Do we not have a single number 8 or 6 that actually gets it over the advantage line...Easy to blame the backs but the forwards are not helping them.

    Same old Australia. Can't kick, can't scrummage.

    I will say this - compared to a few years ago, we are light-years better at the breakdown. But other than that, progress has been pretty disappointing.

    I can forgive the silly mistakes, because a lot of that will be fixed by experience, but we're not going to consistently beat quality teams until we stop playing the game like it's rugby league.

    To all those saying it was loke Rugby League - I agree 100%.

    Dummy half - toss the ball 3 yards to a big bloke - grunt, smash for 2 yards (if not backwards) - fall over - repeat.

    One of the most disappointing games to watch I have ever seen. England didn't help, but they did exactly what they needed to do.
