I prefer the lineouts back then without the silly lifting, which is both dangerous and ruins a competitive part of the game, but not sure the collisions in the scrum were something I'd like back. Happy days when we won something(and even Tigers had 8 players in the squad and we used to win things too).

There certainly were some hits! I tend to agree regarding the line out. Tigers certainly had a good representation......Iím currently watching the game v the Boks.....in fairness England look good and played some good rugby.....I have to admit to forgetting a lot of it.......but SA really took it to England .....Martin Johnson was immense and Jonny Wilkinson.......awesome!

Tigers had a lot of players in the last world cup squad

Itís weird, I know the results but still get nervous when England went behind, particularly against Samoa!
