I am sick and tired of losing with England: Nick Easter

Nick Easter confessed to getting “ill and tired” of dropping rugby matches with England following this latest flop.

The Harlequins forward echoed the indignant submit-match reaction of boss Martin Johnson to Australia’s wonderful escape on Saturday.

And he warned his crew mates that heads would likely roll unless they somehow conjure up a victory in the second Exam in Sydney this weekend.

“I’m ill and exhausted of being on the incorrect conclude of final results,” raged Easter subsequent England’s 13th defeat in 22 matches under Johnson.

“I do not want to be understanding more lessons. I want us to be executing appropriately and winning games. Our expectations have acquired to be greater. Leading course sides would have closed out the game.”

Easter’s outburst supplied an perception into the stress felt by a squad of talented men and women nevertheless unable to reduce it as a best-course Test staff.

“I’m as annoyed as I have actually been after an England sport,” he added. “I envision there will be adjustments if we shed yet again subsequent week due to the fact we are not able to go on like this.”

In the land in which Martin Johnson lifted the World Cup, England are back to being every single Aussie’s favourite punchline.

As they flew out of Perth yesterday even the pilot got in on the act. “It could be even worse boys,” he stated above the tannoy. “You could be an English goalkeeper”.


But it is no joke for Johnson, whose win-reduction file is now poorer than these of predecessors Brian Ashton and Andy Robinson when they had been sacked.

Previous night time scrum coach Graham Rowntree leapt to his defence declaring: “I’ve got every single faith in Johnno. He is a mate, I have confidence in him and he is the correct guy for the occupation.

“A few of wins below his belt and other folks will be declaring the same. But we cannot conceal absent from the fact we are not finding them.”

Rowntree stored up his conclude of the bargain at the Subiaco Oval exactly where England won arguably the most one-sided scrummaging battle Examination rugby has observed.

So dominant was their set-piece that they grew to become the first staff to be awarded two penalty tries in a match amongst two significant nations.

They compelled the Wallabies to concede 9 penalties, a cost-free-kick and a guy to the sin-bin as time and once again their scrum collapsed under stress.

Nevertheless England, tackling as though it was optional, conspired to drop the game via their inability to do nearly anything considerably more innovative than bend through and push.

Prop star Dan Cole admitted they were sloppy and necessary to sharpen up. “We’ve acquired to analyse ourselves and be pretty brutal, individually and as a staff, and place issues proper,” he explained.

“This was a very good option for us and we missed it. We did a job and got the result we needed at the scrum but we missing the match and that is irritating and irritating.”

It could have been even even worse had the damage-ravaged Wallabies been a lot more medical with the options that came their way.

As it was they led 14- at 50 percent-time with 50 percent-backs Luke Burgess and two-try out Quade Cooper totally outclassing Danny Treatment and Toby Flood.

Only then did England’s scrum eventually money in on its dominance, leaving Welsh ref Nigel Owens no choice other than to award two penalty tries which pulled them back to 21-17.

It ought to have been the springboard to a late onslaught but England merely will not have the potential to unpick the world’s greatest defences.
