England's Rugby World Cup hopes hang by a thread after their dramatic defeat to Wales on Saturday night and they have been taken apart on social media.

Wales' stunning 28-25 victory at Twickenham left the hosts' quest teetering on the brink of collapse, having been in a seemingly comfortable position at 10 points ahead with half an hour remaining of a match they had dominated.

Repeated indiscipline at the breakdown allowed Wales to claw their way back into contention through the boot of Dan Biggar, even as Warren Gatland's men contended with a sickening series of second-half injuries.

There was a horrible inevitability about the final 10 minutes as momentum swung behind the courageous Welsh, with Gareth Davies capitalising on poor defence to cross under the posts before Biggar landed the winning penalty with five minutes remaining.

Lancaster and his side have been targeted on social media since the defeat and Ireland's record tryscorer Brian O'Driscoll has joined in on the act.

Id say he's not feeling or looking as good as that this morning! RWC2015
