image for England Not Looking Forward To South Africa Mauling - Bookies Reflect This
England learning how to play rugby yesterday

England Rugby manager Brian Ashton, jubilant after his team's momentous semi-final win against France on Saturday, has confessed that he isn't looking forward to another drubbing from South Africa next weekend.

The Springboks will be a different proposition to France, in that they are a decent team, and Ashton knows that scraping past the French will almost certainly leave England open to maximum embarrassment and Total Humiliation.

England were flattened 36-0 in the group stages of this very tournament, and bookmakers have been taking millions of bets on an even bigger rout in the Final, one punter laying £1000 on a 50-point South Africa win.

Currently the English team are extreme rank outsiders with South Africa 1-8 ON, New Zealand 2-1, Australia 3-1, and then England at 250-1.

Make Mister Meaner's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
