I'm pretty sure Robinson was involved in the England setup that won the World Cup.

It's a bad crop of players, the coach is hardly to blame for that. We are missing some big players, and we still haven't filled in the holes left by Martin Lawrence and Laurence Dallagio. Our forwards used to be our biggest asset, pushing around any other side. Yet now we look very average, especially with Andrew Sheridan out for so long.

I think i can for the 1st time confidently say Ireland will win the 6 nations, we have beaten france more times than they have beaten us in recent years, and they are the only competition to us at the moment in the northern hem.
