appointing him for any future England games though. And maybe that's what
Lancaster is thinking.
Tricky situation for Lancaster though, if he genuinely believes that his
players trained for and executed what Walsh said he expected of them but
still fell foul, then he should ask for "clarification". I'd like to think
he'd have raised the same issues had we won, because it's still going to be
a problem if we're ever (God forbid) refereed by him again.
