English All Blacks?

Whoever decreed that the English Rugby Union team wears all black strip for matches should be sacked.

All black is worn by the New Zealand fifteen and all white is the colour of the English strip. It's what identifies the team. It's the colour to be followed in combat, a rallying point, and should never be changed, even for short term reasons other than conflict of colours. It's no wonder that when put under stress in the second half by a resurgent Welsh team, England were forced to hang on to secure a narrow win although losing the try count three to two.

England in all white strip please.
