[Listening to: Sugar Hiccup - Cocteau Twins - Rough Trade Shops: 25 Years Disc 2]

"Crouching like a constipated water-skier" is how the Sydney Morning Herald described Jonny Wilkinson. In the post match conference a good natured Wallabies coach Eddie Jones described England as "best team in the world by one minute". At the end of 100 minutes though the score was 20 - 17, and England held the Rugby World Cup aloft thanks to Jonnies boot. Credit to the Aussies, they had me and the rest of the crowd in Finnegan's Irish pub in Rome worried for a while. I can't wait to see them here in Italy in Rome on February 15 when they start the Six Nations Championship.
