Was thinking about this a bit more, and two other thoughts come to mind: England also lack creativity in the halves in rugby league, a problem that has made it almost impossible to beat Australia in any competition in decades, and two, rugby also happens to be the second sport of a country called Argentina - who are responsible for a soccer player named Messi that most seem to think is more than a little creative.
So perhaps it's more to do with British culture?
That is about what I said in my previous post ... England does not have any creativ player in any sport because their sport culture is based on physical opposition and not on creativity. If you look at their football, it is still based on the kick and rush, even if their club teams do not play this way anymore due to foreign players. But English football is still much more physical than any other top european league ... Isn't it cultural in English rugby to play a lot with forwards and rarely use the backline ?
