I am glad to see the support for our team. My point was that comparing them to teams past is not supportive nor is it constructive. They all have access to these posts and do not need to see the discension from their country men. When the games are over it is fair to compare and contrast successes and failures. Until then these lads are still writing their own legacies.
Far better put than the first posting, and worthy of response. First of all it was not me that started or engaged in that discussion about other squads. Second, I have not seen any failures from this England U19s, I will not start any debate about relative strengths and pretourney expectations, but everyone I know hoped they would do well, and they have. The victory against Australia was brilliant, and a credit to the coaches as well as the players.
We are now hoping for a stomping victory against the Czechs, who will be no push over, and another Box based approach v full field clash. Win that and we can rightly claim to be best in Europe, which is no small achievement.
Then the big clash against Canada!
