    England 03 were the best I ever saw at restarts - catching kick-offs and stealing their own kicks. Their lineout was almost perfect, and their scrum was good.

    So, who is the best at the RWC in all three departments?

    The ABs have weakness in the lineout, and Italy got a shunt on at the scrum. Aus have well known scrum problems. It looks like SA, at the moment. But it's early days ...

  3. That's what it comes down to...the aussie media loved calling Woodward a control freak but his team just did the business. They were so well-drilled the rest was simplicity itself.

    Look at how they set about that last drop goal in the 2003 final it was just like A, B, C
