It wasn't exactly hard getting into the semi finals though was it. The only good team we played beat us.

NZ has had a killer run into the semis haven't they

They only way it could is England are the only decent team they will have faced so far so could be under done but that wasn't my point, tge fact is we have qualified for the semi final of the WC, we have not as some people on here think, failed, we may well do let's wait and see.

No they haven't. They only beat Samoa by 18 points, only 2 more than Fiji did.

In their first match they won by 18 points, that's pretty convincing.

How many unanswered points did Samoa put on them? They have been far from convincing at times, strange why you want to put NZ on some kind of pedestal.

Not really, you brought NZ into this, I'm just replying to posts that have cropped up after that. FWIW I think NZ will win the world cup.

They may well do but they will have to get passed a very good England side who will be far and away the toughest test they have faced so far, the last game they played against good opposition the got well beaten, the same opposition that England got very close to beating earlier in this WC.

But past results and performances (even in this current WC) will count for very little on Saturday.

Never before has a GB/England coach been afforded so much time and availability to his charges, he has had the luxury of getting his multiple P's correct i.e. Prior Planning & Preparation Prevents P155 Poor Performance, if we do not come up with the goods and lose, then:-

1) Tactically he has got it wrong.

2) His selection criteria, is wrong.

3) We are simply not good enough, to compete at this level.

If we do lose and the post-mortem suggests either 1) or 2) to be at fault, then he has to go, no second chance, If it is deemed that 3) is responsible well er..................

Mr Moderator please excuse the vernacular, it is not meant to offend, it is an essential part of the phrase.

 

 

You do realise we are in the Semi finals on Saturday don't you.

Why not wait and see how far we progress before you perform your post mortem, your 3 points could all turn out to be absolute tosh.

 

Chris, obviously you do not read before you get flustered, I was replying to another posters thread who brought up the point of the ETS.

 

I was expanding my thoughts of what if - if you care to look again - not this should, please read again and you will see I said "if we lose", not like that little voice in the back of your head that is telling you otherwise!

Can all the Chase haters and pro-widdop gang shut up now. Also can they be man-enough to admit they're wrong if Widdop has a shocker on Saturday?

I was just having a bit of fun with you. In not a very good way. I was suggesting that there is no room on that pedestal because you have already put Sinfield on it.

I for one will. But seeing Widdop excel in NRL grand finals makes me think he will be able to cope under the pressure.

No doubt McNamara will still get blamed for this decision if Widdop has a shocker.

 

I think it's the right move though and Burrow on the bench, with Roby at starting hooker makes me feel confident we may stand a chance
