“If you think about a team’s progression to the final destination – what is, ultimately, winning a World Cup – England are not there. You look at Ireland and they are firing on all cylinders.
If you’re an Irish supporter, enjoy today, but just hope that they can maintain that title of number one for another year, and still get better.”
Is @DylanHartley the Southern Hemisphere representative on the @SkySports rugby panel?#AUSvENG #Rugby
