THE England team are in a World Cup semi-final, but sadly only in the game of rugby.
The team, which represents a certain strata of the country, has achieved something which is impressive until you look again and realise the sport involved.
Wayne Hayes of Newcastle said: “So, there’s been a World Cup on. Seemingly for some time.
“And this ‘England’ team, whose players are household names if your children attend fee-paying schools, have beaten some others and are in the semi-final. I suppose well done.
“This isn’t the one where there’s only six nations involved. I don’t know what that one’s called, but this one’s bigger. Wonder where it’s on? Not anywhere nearby or I’d have heard, surely.
“So yes, we’re playing South Africa and then we could bring home a World Cup. Not the World Cup, obviously. God, imagine if we were in the semi-final of that. I’d be agog.
“Will I watch it? No, I’m not getting up to watch Sky Sports 3 at four in the morning. What? It’s on ITV next Saturday night? Well probably not anyway, no.”
