Bryce Lawrence could get banned from referreeing following his shambolic handling of the Quarter-Final last week.There are even reports that the game was fixed.This sums up a pretty average World Cup.
2003 had Johnny Wilkinson,Sir Clive Woodward and an awesome English team,commanding Captain and Phil Greenwood!
2007 had Jake White's amazing transformation of The Springboks in 4 years.
1995 had the unification of a once racially divided SOuth Africa
1999 France's shocking win over New Zealand,a golden generation of Aussies winning two world cups in 3 attempts.
this world cup has had bad referreeing,unfair scheduling,Bryce Lawrence,England's off field antics,France's off field scandals,people getting fined for twitter comments,people getting banned for 6 months for twiiter comments,unsanctioned mouth guards,Cortney laws injuring Argentinean players,unsanctioned foul play,Bryce Lawrence,match-fixing allegations.
from an English perspective,your most successful team at the moment is your cricket team,probably the most focused,goal driven,ambitious,determined team across the major team sports.You don't here about off-filed antics anymore,or team quarreling,just proper team ethic,professionalism,maturity and class.They deserve to be the number1 test team,world T20 champions,Ashes holders and to boast the ICC player of the year,you rugby players should follow their example................all that and import more South Africans!(sorry,couldn't resist)
