Dull Dull Dull (England 20 - Italy 7)

Well a win is a win and Italy aren't as bad as the French made them look last week. But still, that game was dull. Italy spoiled well, England's pack never got going. England wasn't helped by Wilkinson having a mare with his kicking from hand, several sliced into short touches and several others just humped down field meant that England spent the second half stuck in their own 22. Iain Balshaw was awful before he went off, couldn't handle the high ball, and repeatedly took the wrong options in attack.

If we play like that against the Irish we are going to get hammered. Oh well 2 from 2 and it could have been a lost worse.
