England's performance in the World Cup (yes there is one going on, Rugby League, no you won't find much about it in the press, it's a Northern working class sport you know) plumbed new depths with an inept surrender against New Zealand after taking a commanding lead. However, you have to admire the ingenuity of the these Australians. As a result of the bizarre structure of the tournament, England's two successive defeats have won them a place in the semi-finals. They play New Zealand again next weekend.
