And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic Mills?

Bring me my Bow of burning gold!
Bring me my Arrows of desire!
Bring me my Spear! O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!

I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.


William Blake
1757-1827

Come on England!


Stirring stuff indeed, best when not accompanied by an mindless drummer   ;)

That Kiwi try was just fantastic

All the same, that was still the best game of Rugby League I have seen in my life.  Well done England for a marvellous effort.

I altered the original text when I quoted it.

sam burgess has got to be the best player around at the mo along with graham? apart from that missed tackle sinfield played well, Leroy cudjoe for me has been a massive disappointment in the wc.

it was a 3v2 over lap sinfield had 2 rush out. What was G burgess doing giving a pen away on last tackle.

What was Sinfield doing kicking to the posts instead of touch. Invited the counterattack that resulted in the Kiwi's final try, aided and abeted by his rushing out of the line and creating additional space, allowing the final score. !!!!

He was close to the touch line when he kicked it back infield maybe he didnt want it to go out on the full & went for distance instead. Even if sinfield didnt rush out they would have scored it was a 3v2. If G burgess didnt give that pen away England would of won.
