...later. England finally won their first Grand Slam since their World Cup triumph, thirteen whole years ago, with a victory in Paris over the French.
...with fourteen. England nearly blew it again against the Taffy Boyos but the pundits got it wrong to blame the near defeat on Eddie Jones' substitutions.
...watchable. Eddie Jones' England side rumbled past Ireland to keep their unbeaten record in this years Six Nations but it's not great to watch until he corrects his errors on the hour.
...for being substituted. Eddie Jones said he wanted England to give Italy a “good hiding” in their second Six Nations game, the team he picked didn't the one he ended up with did.
...loser. Rugby Football Union chief executive Ian Ritchie is right when he said a fourth consecutive second-placed finish for England in the Six Nations is "not acceptable".
...men of them. England's defeat of a Welsh side containing 12 British Lions, taking the Triple Crown and keeping their title hopes alive was another big step in the making of many of Stuart Lancaster's teams.
...post. Very lax of me, I mean England snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in Paris and then the ineptness of the Jocks at home against the Auld Enemy should have elicited something here.
...roars.Have to say I was rather glad Jonny Wilkinson's Toulon won the Heineken Cup.
...it's just they're sick and tired of him. Welsh Wales legends have been coming out and complaining about England's coaches making it public knowledge they have some questions for the referee of Saturday's championship decider.
...Grand Slam. Get the funny feeling that's all they were thinking about when the little matter of an Italian side could quite have easily spoiled the party.
...England. If England go on to win the Grand Slam or just the Championship they need to strike one more medal and award it to the current French coach because on Saturday he made sure it could happen.
...team? The previous two home victories, against New Zealand and Scotland, were good but was winning away in Ireland the indication of where this England rugby team is under Stuart Lancaster?
...smoke it. Arrogant enough there Jimbo? Scotland talked a good game and again were sent home from Twickenham to “think again” as England won the Calcutta Cup in their opening game of the 6 Nations.
...stop the world. Stuart Lancaster was really the only option for the England Rugby head coach, so much so that even an English sporting regulatory body couldn't screw it up.
...like all the best things are. Stuart Lancaster along with the England team he put together during this 6 Nations tournament have made a great deal about how it all came about in Leeds and it led to Ireland's thumping at Twickenham.
