Rugby World Cup: Poms set to be fined for no show

ENGLAND are being portrayed as bad losers...by their own press.

The Independent newspaper says the team is set to be "heavily fined" after players failed to show for interviews after getting smashed by Australia at Twickenham, a result which saw them dumped out of rugby World Cup contention.

Only loose forward Tom Wood and reserve halfback Richard Wigglesworth showed up to "apologise to the nation" whereas each country is required to produce at least 10 players in the mixed zone for media interviews.

Wood said the dressing room was in despair.

Requests for more players fell on deaf ears, and World Rugby is investigating.
