Retirements
After careful consideration we have made the decision that the following players can no longer continue with international duties and we wish you the very best for the rest of your careers.

Frankie Bradshaw (36yo) - 101 caps
Gregor Donnelly (36yo) - 88 caps
Rory Shift (34yo) - 65 caps
Pete Watts (33yo) - 65 caps
Graham Wood (34yo) - 42 caps
Darren George (32yo) - 26 caps
Nev Lowe (31yo) - 10 caps

It will be a shame to lose these players, however there has been a number of younger players that have been promoted to the first squad as we prepare for some upcoming under 26yo games.

England under new management!
Thank you all very much for the voting us in. We will try our best to improve England performance in both tournaments and also building a team for the future. We will identify what players we need and what best skills are best to be trained.

If you have any potential players do not hesitate to contact us

RWC 2015
We reached the quarterfinals. That was was our goal.
We are not at the same level of the top teams, it seems that we need more technical skills.
Against Canada and Australia we chose to emphasize our strenghts, but the lack of handling has prevented our team to score enough tries to win the group.
In the quarterfinals, France didn't give us a single opportunity to score.
So, what did we learn from this?
That... there is more work to do!
It will not be easy to do better in the upcoming two seasons, but with your help we could try to close the gap between us and the top teams.

RWC 2015
We've qualified and we're going to enjoy the tournament. The highest goal is still to reach the quarter final. We'll do our best. All our recent scores show the solidity of our team, but even that we are not so stronger than other competitors to feel secure of good results in the RWC.
Scores
Espana - England 7-0
England - Magyarország 7-0
Nederland - England 7-15 (We did some experiments, to be honest)
England - Argentina 14-7 (Our best match, in my opinion)
Schweiz - England 0-21
Let me say one more thing to the managers of those England NT players that haven't played in these 4 months: sometime it's hard to leave out of the 22 very well trained players, but we have to choose the better ones. We are very competitive people, we'd like to win every single match.

England 21 - 0 USA
RM World Cup qualifying started!
Debut against the USA national team with a win following a good ball conquer.
A pity not to have scored the fourth try to take the bonus point!

Three unexpected results
New Zealand 7 - 14 England
We were prepared to be defeated, New Zealand was 5th in the ranking before this game, so we tried a very offensive lineup to score at least one try. We won!

2 Frankie Bradshaw
3 Rory Swift
4 Josh Pritchard
5 Matthew Wallis
6 Glen Reeves
7 John Robinson
8 Gregor Donnelly
9 Nev Lowe
10 Vince Powers
11 Matt Tyler
12 Rory Simpson
13 Sean Bennett
14 Graham Wood
15 Pete Howell

Osterreich 14 - 7 England
We developed a strategy based on ball possession and we won most of the rucks and freeball, but something went wrong.
That miserable 30% in passing is still hurting.

England 7 - 0 Belgique
Again, we were prepared to be defeated, Belgique was 4th in the ranking before this game, so we choose to balance ball possession and defense skills.
Apparently, it worked.

12 Ian Bibi (1st cap)
13 Sean Bennett
14 Graham Wood
15 Darren George

The upcoming match is against Chile, 29th position in the ranking. So...
we are the favorites and... this worries us a lot.
