Ride That Luck !
Ever since their shambolic arrival at the World Cup, England has been favoured by Lady Luck:
> First opponents USA: we were always going to lose to South Africa, but imagine if Tonga had been first up
> Excellent build-up via Samoa and Tonga: the sort of warm-up sequence most teams try to organise before turning up in the first place
> Australia in the quarters: we were always going to draw a Pool winner, and Australia were the easiest for England
> France in the semis: the Old Enemy is a much more straightforward proposition than the All Blacks would have been
Ride that luck - and onwards to the final !
