...it really was all over. You knew when England head coach finally sat down in the coaches booth that his England's World Cup was done and dusted.
...what else where you expecting? England got off to a ropey start with a 4 point victory over Argentina in their Rugby World Cup 2001 opener. No surprise there.
...Jocks. After all they repeatedly do their best to make the Jocks look good on a rugby pitch and they were at it again on Sunday as they struggled to keep the Grand Slam dream alive.
...for Saturday night's performance. But over the whole tournament they certainly deserved. It's just in Paris on Saturday night they were handed the Slam in a not too Grand manner.
...offence? Loosing to the Jocks was bad enough to get Andy Robinson the sack as England coach then surely only drawing with an Andy Robinson led Scotland side should be enough to see Martin Johnson relieved of duties.
...won? England could have quite easily have beaten Ireland on Saturday in the Six Nations, is it better that they didn't?
...remember and hate. The England rugby side that puts in shockingly awful performances that are followed up by the manager and captain saying how great they were.
...post three days later? England actually not only manage a win at Twickenham in their opening Six Nations game but the score three tries in the process and it takes till Tuesday for a post.
...seriously? Somehow the ex-England captain and World Cup winner thinks that one performance with a bit of heart against an average New Zealand side means Martin Johnson's side are headed for glory.
...that purple kit. Or the performance of the England rugby side that were wearing it against Argentina on Saturday, as they struggled for victory before being booed off the park.
...one. It was great to see Jonny Wilkinson back in an England shirt on Saturday, playing well and along with Steve Thompson putting so many of those Fabio will take to the World Cup to shame.
...an ability to ground the ball there. And what could the lions be coming away with from South Africa? It could have been 3-0 or 2-0 series victory and a great way to end for Ian McGeechan.
...one team wasn't going to be allowed to win. And the British & Irish Lions would come off the field no matter what two nil down in the Test series against South Africa.
...Steve Borthwick doesn't like it and after all it was just the Jocks that England beat to finish second in the Six Nations table.
...blue kits. What do you mean it was England in the white and the French in blue, can't be it was 29-0 at half time.
