Peter Bills: England's ugly style years out of fashion

Britain in 1939, New Zealand sent simple, humble, wonderful men -- farmers, labourers, whoever -- to help save Britain in its hour of need. Now Britain's largest rugby nation could do with the favour being repeated.
English rugby is in an absolute pit of mediocrity, a dire state just 16 months out from the 2011 World Cup. The performance England gave in carving out a 15-15 draw against Scotland at Murrayfield served only to underline the extreme poverty in England's game at this time.
It was a shambolic, shameful, appalling performance from a team who have no idea how to play the game of contemporary times.
