I'm on the verge of feeling sorry for the England team. Well feeling bad for Wilko at least. They got Harry out of Iraq but couldn't keep poor Jonny out of South Africa. The Poms got royally walloped in the first test losing by a record margin to the Springboks (as an aside Ashton has been in charge of England for 6 matches now and has suffered TWO record breaking losses) and to be honest it should be more of the same in this second match too. With the Bokke putting out a pretty much unchanged team from the one that thumped the English last week they'll be looking to surpass the total they racked up that day. For their part England will just look to keep the score down to something vaguely respectable. THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL they are gonna be able to compete with the Springboks tomorrow. More injuries, more illness and the loss of Robinson has decimated an already weakened and demoralised English outfit.

C'mon another English humiliation *rubs hands together in sadistic glee* c'mon the Bokke!!
