Get a grip

Regarding England's exit from the World Cup, I mentioned in my post yesterday that the inquest could wait.

How naive.

The ridiculously hysterical reaction of the good old British media and various has-beens and hangers-on is nothing if not predictable.

FFS, get a grip.

Yes, it's a shame. Yes, it's disappointing. Yes, there are various criticisms that can be levelled at the England camp.

But please let's try to get things in perspective. England have lost 2 games of rugby to 2 very good teams. We probably should have beaten Wales, but Wales still had to win that game and did so magnificently. As for Australia, they were very, very good on Saturday - certainly too good for England - and must be a contender for the title.

A smidgeon of dignity in defeat wouldn't go amiss.
