Over the weekend, the Brits let two world titles slip through their grasp. To tell you the truth, though, I don’t think anyone can be disappointed with either; given the state of English rugby this year or the fact that Hamilton was an unknown rookie I’m sure both would have snapped your hand off for those results 12 months ago.
I’m slightly more gutted for Hamilton who did have chances to sow up the championship during the last two races but I think his career will go better for not being the first rookie winner of the title, the pressure would be phenomenal.
As for the rugby team, they did the nation proud. On the end of a 36-0 hammering against the same opposition just over a month ago, they can stand tall and proud with Saturday’s result.
