England Rugby Union Team are becoming the nearly men of the International Circuit - Two years in a row we have just missed out on the Six Nations the last by points difference, we have lost to New Zealand and pushed them right to the edge on so many occassions. In order for us to shake that tag, Stuart Lancaster has to deliver three Test Victories in the Autumn Internationals, the Six Nations Title and at least get to the final of the World Cup especially as the tournament is on Home Soil.
Stuart Lancaster has been plotting his way towards next year’s home World Cup since the summer of 2012, but the great conundrum of English rugby – otherwise known as the red rose midfield – remains unsolved. The national coach has dropped both of his Six Nations centres, Billy Twelvetrees and Luther Burrell, for this weekend’s last hurrah against the All Blacks in Hamilton and if the fresh combination of Kyle Eastmond and Manu Tuilagi click together as readily as they did in Auckland a dozen days ago, it will inevitably lead to a major reassessment of the available options.

Well... I'm not really sure how to sum this weekend up? First off England.. What a team Stuart Lancaster has got! No Six Nations title but we got the Triple Crown and more than enough reasons to feel good about the World Cup.

The screaming of a f1 car which has been imitated by every young boy in living memory is now a distant memory. Next year they might as well race a modified Prius!
Rugby-England can win World Cup, says Stuart Lancaster: England Coach Stuart Lancaster believes his team can win the World Cup on home soil next year following a successful Six Nations campaign. England missed out on the title on points difference to Ireland but won four games in a row after losing their opening match in France. "I've always believed that (we can win the World Cup) and I've believed it from minute one," Lancaster told reporters on Sunday. "It has been a steep curve and we have had to do it quickly," added Lancaster who took over as coach two years ago. "We have been through our period of transition. I look at other international teams with a lot of over-30s playing for them and think 'they are going to have to go through a period of transition at some point'. "We've been through that and have got a very young side. This team will be around well beyond the next World Cup and way through to 2019." England lost 26-24 in France after conceding a late try but they beat Scotland 20-0, Ireland 1 ...

A drunk rugby fan was given a police escort to the luxury Rome hotel where the England team is based for this weekend's Six Nations match against Italy, after convincing them he was a member of the squad. Joshua Goldsworthy, 20, was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in Rome city centre and then began resisting attempts to get into a police vehicle. Officers became alarmed after he told them he was a key player with Stuart Lancaster's England fifteen and decided to rush him back to the squad's luxury five star hotel. But when they arrived with the man and asked to speak to an official from the RFU to verify his identity they were told:'Sorry, we've never seen this man before.'

Six Nations - Farrell hopeful France can help England win Six Nations Andy Farrell is backing England to *** the 2014 RBS 6 Nations title from Ireland's fingertips - with a little help from old foes France. The climatic day of the tournament opens at the Stadio Olimpico where Stuart Lancaster's men will attempt to rout Italy before relocating to the post-match function to watch events in Paris unfold. Offering the most realistic chance of a first Six Nations crown under Lancaster is France spoiling Brian O'Driscoll's international farewell and being crowned champions on points difference. Les Bleus' typically erratic form makes the outcome of the final match fiendishly difficult to predict, but Farrell senses they are ready to do England a favour - six weeks after destroying their Grand Slam dream. "We've got a good chance of winning the title because the French are at their best when their backs are against the wall," England's backs coach said. "A few questions have been asked of the French team rece .. ...

NEWSFLASH !!! England recall for Tuilagi Last Updated: 19:10 11/03/14 Manu Tuilagi has been recalled to the England matchday squad for Saturday's Six Nations clash with Italy in Rome. The Leicester centre will almost certainly start on the bench, where he takes the place of Alex Goode. England Coach Stuart Lancaster confirmed the return of Tuilagi on Tuesday evening, but he has already dropped a heavy hint that the starting XV will be unchanged against the Azzurri. Tuilagi suffered a chest muscle injury playing for the Tigers against Newcastle back in September. He made his return for Leicester last month and has since proved his match fitness.
Stuart Lancaster says England will be purely focusing on beating Italy in Rome as they look to cap a positive Six Nations campaign by claiming the championship.
England rise to dramatic win over Wales to leave Six Nations open • England 29-18 Wales There is a slightly old-fashioned feel about a Triple Crown these days but England will hope this sunny Sunday afternoon is the prelude to an extremely bright future. Some victories retain a lingering significance and, with Wales in their Rugby World Cup pool next year, this could be one of them. Even if Stuart Lancaster's side fail to nick this year's Six Nations title, they will still have taken a massive stride forwards. Already they have managed what no English side has done since the World Cup winners of 2003 and beat the Welsh, the Irish and the Scots in the same season. But for a couple of wicked bounces of the ball in Paris last month they would be within one win of a Grand Slam with this weekend's trip to Italy to come. As it is, they now need to defeat the Italians and hope France do them a favour by beating Ireland later the same day. A convenient draw at the Stade de France would be even better. Either wa ...

Six Nations 2014: England out to exorcise Wales spirit after beating Irish • We are growing in confidence, says Stuart Lancaster • Joe Launchbury 'is unassuming but a *** of a player' Almost the best thing about England's stirring victory on Saturday is the delicious sense of anticipation it uncorks. There will be no Grand Slams in this year's Six Nations but Wales' visit to south-west London on Sunday week cannot come quickly enough for both tribes. If it is half as good as this outstanding contest, a proper Test in every sense, not even the losers will complain too loudly. Ireland can also still collect the title if they recover from this psychological jolt and see off Italy and France. Whoever ends up on top of the table, however, this was a highly significant outcome for England and an indication of the growing character within Stuart Lancaster's young squad. As recently as three weeks ago they were losing tight games such as this, some core skills faltering under pressure. There was, consequentl ...

2014 RBS 6 NATIONS: Saturday, February 22 ENGLAND (3rd) v IRELAND (1st), Twickenham, 4pm (live RTÉ Two/BBC One/RTÉ Radio 1/IRFU Live Blog) Team News: Ireland Head Coach Joe Schmidt has named an unchanged team for Saturday's RBS 6 Nations showdown with England at Twickenham. Paul O'Connell will lead the side on the occasion of his 90th cap as Ireland seek their first win at Twickenham since 2010. Chris Henry, a try scorer against Wales, retains the number 7 jersey and is joined in the back row by Peter O'Mahony and Jamie Heaslip. Conor Murray and Jonathan Sexton continue as the half-back pairing with Brian O'Driscoll and Gordon D'Arcy lining out in midfield. O'Driscoll's 63rd Championship appearance will see him go level on the Six Nations all-time list with Ronan O'Gara, while his 139th international outing (8 caps with the Lions) equals George Gregan's record as the most-capped player in Test rugby history. There will also be a caps milestone for hooker Rory Best as he overtakes David Humphreys as Ulst ...

Sam Burgess leaves Rugby League for Rugby Union. Bath sign England Rugby League forward England Rugby League forward Sam Burgess is to switch codes and move to Bath on a three-year contract. The Premiership club will pay Australian side South Sydney Rabbitohs about £270,000 (AUS$500,000 Australian dollars) for the 25-year-old. He will join at the end of the NRL season in October. "With 2015 being a Rugby World Cup, it was an opportunity I had to pursue," Burgess said. "I can't wait to get my head down and start learning the game." The forward played four times in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup as England were beaten by New Zealand in the semi-final. England Rugby Union Head Coach Stuart Lancaster met Burgess in Australia in August, and sees him playing at centre in the 15-man game. The 2015 Six Nations starts on 6 February, giving Burgess around three months to adapt for that tournament. The 2015 World Cup, which is being held in England, starts in September. Burgess said: "This has been a tough decisio ...
England suffer Six Nations blow as neck injury rules out Dan Cole • Prop to miss remainder of championship due to trapped nerve • 'It's massively disappointing,' says Stuart Lancaster England's Six Nations title prospects have suffered a serious blow following the news that the tighthead prop Dan Cole will miss the remainder of the championship with a neck problem. Cole has been told he needs a rest from rugby to relieve a trapped nerve caused by a bulging disc. It is the worst possible development for England as they prepare for Saturday's huge game against Ireland at Twickenham. Cole is the cornerstone of the home pack and his absence gives the England management a huge headache. Cole's understudy, David Wilson, has only just returned from a calf problem and the Bath prop looked short of match fitness at Exeter on Saturday. The next alternative is Sale's Henry Thomas, who is still learning at the highest level. Given Ireland have a Lions loosehead, Cian Healy, it could change the complexion of this ...
Six Nations 2014: England Coach Stuart Lancaster's bold gamble is paying off in countdown to Ireland crunch game
Twelvetrees: “You’d be stupid to get too comfortable with your place” February 13, 2014 Billy Twelvetrees has been ever present in the England squad since making his international debut at the start of 2013. His cap tally is now in double figures and the Gloucester playmaker was the only centre to start more than five England games last year. Manu Tuilagi, Brad Barritt, Jonathan Joseph and Kyle Eastmond played alongside Twelvetrees in England’s midfield in 2013 but he is very much enjoying his current partnership with Northampton Saints star Luther Burrell. “The combination has been working well on the pitch and it’s been really loud between myself, Luther and Owen. Luther’s been brilliant since he’s come in and I’m looking forward to hopefully playing alongside him again.” Both players, along with the other thirteen starters of England’s opening two Six Nations fixtures, have been kept in the England camp this week, a strong indication that Stuart Lancaster will name an unchanged li ...

England revive title hopes ahead of Ireland tie Sun, 09 Feb | 15:55 Stuart Lancaster © Gallo Images England's comfortable win over Scotland has put them back in contention to win the Six Nations Championship, according to Coach Stuart Lancaster, but their credentials will face a much tougher test in the next game against leaders Ireland. England recovered from last weekend's last-gasp defeat by France to dominate a woeful Scotland side, a 20-0 scoreline failing to reflect their superiority at Murrayfield The forward pack, led by dynamic No 8 Billy Vunipola and Dylan Hartley's accurate performance at hooker, kept Scotland at arm's length and the backline showed intelligence in conditions not suited to running rugby. "We have put ourselves in contention for the championship," Lancaster said. "Some of our attacking play was excellent considering the difficult conditions and the only disappointment was that we did not score more points in a second half we dominated having led 13-0 at the interval." The clash ...
Sneak preview of this week's rugby piece: WITH ADDED ROYALTY ;) Expert Witness 2014 v2 Each Wednesday during the Six Nations, Planet Rugby's Expert Witness analyses the past weekends' action along with a former international player. Continuing last week’s theme of physical centres, this week we welcome former England skipper, Mike Tindall to share his views on the latest Six Nations action. With another riveting round of international rugby, we witnessed strong displays from both Ireland and England, whilst France finally overcame a resurgent Italy In Dublin, Ireland’s demolition of the Champions, Wales, was a significant victory from the home team and one Mike Tindall believes was built upon the foundation of powerful forward play and a masterclass of fly half skill from Lions’ ten, Johnny Sexton. “Sexton’s right boot was certainly the most influential and impressive of the weekend,” noted the former England skipper. “His ability to vary the plays and to dissect the Welsh defensive weakness ...
Best of the Weekend: Cruise control for Ireland, England and France February 10, 2014 Ireland’s Grand Slam hopes boosted with win over the champions Welsh hopes of a Grand Slam died in Dublin this weekend, and the defending champions were dealt a hammer blow to their chances of retaining the title, as Ireland cruised to a 26-3 victory at the Aviva Stadium. Ireland imposed their game on Wales right from the off, and Warren Gatland’s side lacked both the intensity of their opponents, and the tactical nous. Tries from Chris Henry and Paddy Jackson, as well as a proficient kicking display from Jonathan Sexton, were enough to consign Wales to their first away defeat in the Six Nations since 2011. Wales did not match the defensive intensity of their opponents throughout the game, which was characterised by their poor defence of the driving mauls which set up both Irish tries, whilst the speed of Ireland’s line meant they were able to effectively cut off Welsh attacks at source, and prevent Wales’ danger ...

- Six Nations: Stuart Lancaster names unchanged England team for Scotland clash...
England got their Six Nations campaign back on track with a crushing 20-0 Calcutta Cup victory over Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday. Luther Burrell and Mike Brown, as they'd done in defeat by France last weekend, both scored tries as the 132nd edition of international Rugby Union's oldest fixture saw Scotland rendered pointless by England for the first time since a 15-0 loss at Murrayfield in 1978. Had not fly-half Owen Farrell missed several goalkicks, the final scoreline might have been even more lopsided. Scotland made three changes from the side that opened the Six Nations with a 28-6 loss to Ireland last weekend, with Australia coach Scott Johnson controversially dropping captain Kelly Brown and giving his place at openside flanker to debutant Chris Fusaro. Tommy Seymour replaced the injured Sean Maitland while Matt Scott was brought into midfield instead of Duncan Taylor. Scrum-half Greig Laidlaw took over the captaincy from Brown. England, whose first match in charge under coach Stuart Lancaste ...

England Coach Stuart Lancaster has hit back at Clive Woodward for criticising his substitute policy in their Six Nations opener.
Lancaster defends subs policy 03 February 2014, 19:52 England Coach Stuart Lancaster hit back at criticism of his substitute policy after Clive Woodward said it had caused the team's 26-24 defeat by France in their Six Nations opener in Paris on Saturday. Woodward, England's World Cup-winning boss in 2003, used his column in Monday's Daily Mail to attack Lancaster's use of replacements in the final quarter, particularly the departure of scrum-half Danny Care. "The substitutions coast England the game and that responsibility falls on the management not the players," Woodward wrote. "There were fundamental coaching errors, the players did not deserve it and it is time to wise up," the former England and British and Irish Lions centre added. But Lancaster insisted Monday the defeat was down to a wretched start that saw England fall 16-3 behind following two tries by France's Yoann Huget. "I don't think the replacements were the reason we lost the game. I was certainly pleased with the impact all the substitu ...

Lancaster: Nothing lost yet: England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster will urge his squad to use Wales' Six Nations...
How long can the RFU justify their annual seven-figure spend on their 50-odd councillor blazers whose travel and accommodation to all Six Nations games are met by Twickenham? The Paris trip included dinner on the Friday, lunch and dinner on the Saturday ands a lavish spread — foie gras and all — straight after the game. No wonder the other unions have refused to feed the English blazers’ partners. In these days of elite athlete management of all nutritional needs, it seems outdated that England’s rugby team still have to attend post-match Six Nations banquets. Head Coach Stuart Lancaster, has no complaints. However, England have brought in a strict 50-minute recovery time for players after games this season to ensure they’re not rushed off to dine with the blazers.
England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster was disappointed after his side allowed France sneak a 26-24 win in their opening Six Nations game in Paris. After doing the difficult part in coming back from 16-3 down at half-time, they led 19-24 with minutes remaining before Gael Fickou broke their hearts.
And so, after a match that almost had it all, England leave Paris with nothing. Sport can be as much cruel torture as carefree entertainment. Just ask 20-year-old Jack Nowell, who knocked on with his first touch in international rugby to inadvertently trigger the phase that led to a French try within 32 seconds of kick-off, or Jonny May, broken of nose and black of eye after just six minutes of his Six Nations debut. But should you be sadistic of nature, you could work your way through the entire England team after France's thrilling comeback-after-the-comeback 26-24 win, continue with the coaching staff and then polish off the stunned travelling support as well. To be 16-3 down in Paris, with barely a quarter of the contest gone and an inexperienced team making inexperienced errors, is to fear an unholy thumping. To score 18 unanswered points to lead by five with just four minutes left is to dream of the impossible. To then be denied at the death, even by precocious brilliance, leaves stout men on their ...
France stun England after late try 01 February 2014, 21:18 France snatched a thrilling 26-24 Six Nations victory over England on Saturday thanks to a late converted try by Gael Fickou at the Stade de France. Replacement Fickou broke free on the left wing to cross the line with three minutes left, denying England a famous comeback victory after they had battled back superbly from a 13-point deficit. France, desperate to erase memories of last year's championship when they managed only one victory, stunned England when winger Yoann Huget touched down for the first try after 30 seconds. Huget increased the French advantage with a second try 17 minutes later before three points from Owen Farrell's boot and a Mike Brown try five minutes before halftime gave England hope. The rampaging Billy Vunipola continued to cut through the French defence early in the second half and England deservedly nosed ahead when he set up debutant centre Luther Burrell for the visitors' second try. Danny Care's drop goal made it 21- ...
Five things we learned from England’s Six Nations defeat by France - England may have lost their RBS 6 Nations opener away in France, but there were positives for the team and Stuart Lancaster to take after the 26-24 defeat. -
Well England, how pathetic was that. It's worth remembering that when Martin Johnson was "sacked" England were Six Nations champions. We have not looked close to winning it since. Is the Stuart Lancaster / Andy Farrell "dream team" really moving England forwards? Remember France finshed BOTTOM of last year's Six Nations.
STOP PRESS - Six Nations Preview The Six Nations commences this weekend in Cardiff when Wales take on Italy, England travel to Paris to challenge Les Bleus and the weekend’s dramas finish at the Aviva Stadium with Ireland against a pioneering Scottish team! England: Stuart Lancaster has really steadied the ship since the 2011 World Cup, one of the things that he has done best is that he has been prepared to give players a go. This weekend he has done exactly that, Burrell and Nowell have been handed debuts as well as Jonny May receiving his second cap. My prediction – If England can beat France away, they are well on their way to winning a Six Nations! England have two home games: Wales and Ireland. The pain from last year – when they lost the Grand Slam - may just push them past Wales. Predicted finish: 1 France: After the terrible season that they had last year, no-one knows what to expect!

If it happens again this year it will be the fifth time in a row but England have not travelled across the Channel in the mood to satisfy neat Gallic symmetry. "We may have to weather a storm early on but we intend to bring our own fire," said Tom Wood, always ready to assume the role of Churchillian orator in big weeks like this one. His words further stoked the belief on both sides that a massive confrontation awaits. The English headline plastered across the front of Midi Olympique – "Yes, We Can" – also underlined the intense local desire for France to forget their wooden spoon travails of last season. If it were simply about which side can least afford to lose this opening fixture, Les Bleus wou ...
In his presentation on culture, belonging and the England “cause”, Stuart Lancaster has drawn a red line through “arrogance” and inserted the phrase “self-belief” instead. Saturday evening's Six Nations opener against France in Paris brings a mighty test of the England coach’s belief that “suppressing self-interest” is the formula for building great teams.

Stuart Lancaster says England's motivation is to win a trophy and a strong sense of identity is vital for Six Nations and World Cup success
A good weekend of rugby football coming up: Saturday, on BBC1 at 2.30pm. - Wales and Italy meet. Italy have certainly raised their game since they turned the Five Nations tournament into the Six Nations tournament and it will be an interesting match to watch, but I feel they must be overwhelmed by Wales. On BBC1 at 5.00pm. - France meet Stuart Lancaster's new England team and on Sunday on BBC1 at 3.00pm. - Ireland meet Scotland. I am definitely getting in the Kernel Table Beers and the pork pies.

Saracens centre Brad Barritt has returned to the England setup, he has been sidelined s...
International Scout Notes: January 21st January 21, 2014 Jamie Jonny May May has been deployed as a 13 recently for Gloucester, sparking rumours that Stuart Lancaster might be looking at him to fill that tricky berth for England in the Six Nations. It would certainly be a break from the normal power-based centre game that they have gone with in recent years – May is a slippery, elusive customer with genuine pace. His try against Perpignan at the weekend was an absolute beauty, as he showed good composure to gather a bouncing loose ball before streaking away on a mazy run all the way from within his own half to the whitewash. He is hitting some fine form at the perfect time, and whether on the wing or in the centre he needs to be used at some point during the Six Nations. Dave Ward Ward’s meteoric rise to the Saxons squad is quite unbelievable. For so long the third choice at Harlequins behind Rob Buchanan and Joe Gray (both of whom have had Saxons recognition in that time), injuries have led to a run ...

David Strettle, left out of England's Six Nations squad despite being the country's in-form winger, says he has given up trying to please the country's coaches. With England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster opting to blood youngsters Jonny May, Anthony Watson and Jack Nowell - replacing injured first-choice wingers Marland Yarde and Christian Wade - 30-year-old Strettle looks likely to miss out on next year's home World Cup.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster's options in the centres are dropping like flies but Billy Twelvetrees insists he is only getting stronger with the Six Nations around the corner.
England search for Flood replacement 23rd December 2013 11:16 Toby Flood's cross-channel switch next season means England must now decide on who to back up Owen Farrell going into the RWC 2015. Farrell, England's number one, has only missed the Six Nations match against Italy this year since being used as a replacement against South Africa in November 2012. Although criticism remains over his ability to open up England's attack, the Saracen is the clear frontrunner in the position due to lack of clear competition around him. Flood indeed was Farrell's main rival, along with being England's most experience player during the November Tests with his 60 caps. All but confirmed, Flood's move to France - most likely to Toulouse - will render him unavailable for selection from next season such is England's policy with overseas players. The decision to be made by England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster is whether to use Flood in next year's Six Nations or to start developing a secondary and tertiary fly-half option a ...

Six Nations Rugby live 3pm England v Italy. Stuart Lancaster's England host Italy as they continue their bid to become Six Nations champions. The Azzurri are traditionally seen as the weakest team in the competition, but proved with their opening-day defeat of France that they are no pushovers. Equally, the men in white will be determined not to rest on their laurels - especially given their superb recent displays against nations such as New Zealand and Ireland. When England went to Rome last year, they managed to eke out a narrow 19-15 win. John Inverdale presents, with former England coach Sir Clive Woodward and former captain Lawrence Dallaglio on hand with expert analysis.

A round-up of the most important statistics from round 3 of the Six Nations
England’s Ashton alternatives Posted on Feb 27, 2013 Another weekend in the Six Nations has passed, and England currently sit at the top of the table. They have three wins from three games and whispers of ‘Grand Slam’ have progressively become louder. It is perhaps therefore surprising that clamours for a certain player to be dropped have also been getting louder, despite the old adage of ‘never changing a winning team’. Head Coach Stuart Lancaster took the England job (officially) back in March of last year, despite not having the experience or reputation that many others linked with the vacancy had in abundance. His policy of picking players based on their form, and not their reputation, which coincidentally the RFU also displayed in his hiring, won plaudits from both the fans and the media. There have been few, if any, complaints about the way Lancaster has led this developing England team over the last year, but the continued selection of Saracens winger Chris Ashton, despite fairly ineffect ...

England v France - RBS Six Nations match preview England will be looking to pile more misery on out-of-sorts France when the two rivals meet at Twickenham in Six Nations action on Saturday. Stuart Lancaster's men have made a fine start to the 2013 competition with wins over Scotland and Ireland, but it is a different story for France. The pre-tournament favourites are without a victory from their opening games after following a shock defeat to Italy and they followed up that result with a 16-6 loss to Wales on home soil. Should France lose to England it will also be the first time since 2001 that they have lost three matches in a campaign. It would also be their fifth consecutive loss in the Six Nations, making it their worst losing streak since 1958. However Lancaster, who has recalled Manu Tuilagi, Dylan Hartley and Courtney Lawes, has warned his side against complacency, stating France are still capable of pulling off an upset at Twickenham. "It's interesting to see the French team and the changes they ...

Billy Twelvetrees has kept his place in England’s starting XV for Sunday’s RBS Six Nations clash with Ireland in Dublin, as Stuart Lancaster has opted to retain the midfield combination which began the game against Scotland.
Six Nations 2013 Team of the Week: Round 1 Posted on Feb 5, 2013 | 15: Stuart Hogg (Scotland) A rare shining light on a dismal afternoon for Scotland. Hogg’s mazy running and astounding pace was too much for England, and he was one of only a few Scots who can say they outplayed their opposite number. Showed great commitment to chase down kick and cross in the final few minutes. 14: Luke McLean (Italy) Fly-half to wing is not a particularly common switch, but McLean seems to have made it work. Looks more comfortable away from the spotlight that comes with the playmaking position, and he was a constant threat to the French on Sunday with some darting runs. He also has a handy boot on him, which is rare for a winger. 13: Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland) Write him off at your peril. As convincing a response to the naysayers as is possible, O’Driscoll’s performance was a joy to behold. The blind pass for Zebo’s try was astonishingly good, and his own try showed why he is the master of short-range opportuni ...

Dylan Hartley, Toby Flood and David Strettle come on to the replacements’ bench for David Paice, Freddie Burns and Jonathan Joseph respectively. “We are happy to stick with the team that did so well against New Zealand, especially in light of the fact that they have all been in good form for their clubs since then,” said England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster. “There were some very tight calls, with some experienced players coming back into contention, and I am sure the bench will have a significant impact on the game. “We can’t wait to get back to Twickenham and hopefully experience the same atmosphere as the autumn when the crowd was superb. It means a lot to the players to have such support in ...
