Seriously though, England need to play that dreaded ugly 10-men rugby to win. Attack the Aussie scrums and put pressure on Gregan. Niggle them all day and keep it tight. Play a territorial game and let Jonny do his magic.
Dear Mr.Ashton, Mr. Andrew & to all RFU officials,
I take this time to thank you for reading my posts here at the TRF. I dont mean to boast but it pleases me to see my game-plan being put into action.
Now if you're still reading this, dont use the same M.O against the Froggies. They have a very good counter-kicker in Traille & Beauxis. What you need to do is target their scrawny half-back and apply as much pressure as you can on him...he'll fold like a pack of cards. Also this would be a good time to bring Grewcock back into the squad and partner him with Borthwick in the second-row. You'll need all the thugs you have to counter the sly testicle-grabbing, eye-gouging Froggies. Put Mike Catt at 10 and shift Wilkinson to 12, it's for Wilko's own safety. I know Jason Robinson has been tremendous from fullback but I feel that against the French, you need him on the wing and shift Lewsey to fullback (threaten to cut off his balls if he drops any high-balls or misses a tackle).
Keep Dallaglio & Flood on the bench. Bring them on in the last 20 mins to rub more salt in the frog-soup.
Failing this will result in a French win by 15 points.
Cheers and Good Luck.
Your Friendly Islander,
P.S: Do come around the Islands for a test or two in the next 4 years..it will greatly help. cheers cuz.
