England will win.*
The complete demolition of the All Blacks was the most complete performance by an England side I have ever seen.
And I have watched every England test since the late 70's.
The England team that clinically dismantled 100 years of carefully crafted myth is brand new,
less than a handful of survivors from the RWC 2011 debacle.
New coach, new captain, new attitude.
They were all huge, I don't know what they are feeding them but it ain't Sanitarium Weetbix. They completely dominated in every position, they ran with the ball, they ran onto passes, they were superb. It was like watching a team with 8 Lorenzo Bruno Nero Dallaglio clones in it.
With Steve Hansen being confirmed this week as coach until after the next RWC he needs to act now. A season or two needs to be sacrificed to give them a shot at retaining the cup.
Every player over 30 needs to be dropped. I would start with Mccaw. If Hansen should need any inspiration I recommend the movie Logans Run.
* If Hansen has the nuts to wield the axe it might not be too late.
