Well Barbarians or not, that was a shambles from an England perspective.

Even an England team with sone key players unavailable should be able to beat a team that met in the car park and are coached by a tier 2 club coach rather than ship a bucket load of tries.

EJ building a team to win the next RWC? No way - I always suspected he was an Aussie Trojan Horse.

Harsh on Lam, G.K, plus a core of that Barbarians team were from Toulon so knew each other quite well already, and the others had a full-on two weeks to train. Your point is correct but it's overly exaggerated.

Obviously Lam is a decent coach but the simple fact is that just over one year out from the RWC England should be better than they were. They are now on a 4 game losing streak, which could easily become 7 after the trip to SA.
