English ref whinge

The English are a remarkable crowd. One must admit they have many achievements. Shakespeare, the Steam Train, 1966 and the cup of tea (even though I hate tea). Losing gracefully, however, doesn't appear to be in their playbook at the moment. Their defeat on Saturday is being blamed on poor refereeing. As though they never had the benefit of generous refereeing in the past. As though no other sides have ever been on the other side of dodgy refereeing decisions.

They should ask the minnow nations of world rugby about refereeing, and see how often they get the benefit of refereeing decisions. Not often. Frankly it's pathetic. Defeat hurts, but they need to suck it up.
