An Irish man has come to the defence of Lancaster and England Rugby

Gavin Hickie made a lot of sense in his appearance on CNN. 

Former Leinster, Leicester and Ireland A hooker Gavin Hickie has come to the defence of beleaguered England Rugby head coach Stuart Lancaster, who is shipping all sorts of criticism in light of his team's dramatic exit from RWC2015.

In an interview with CNN's Don Riddell, Hickie of says that the team was 'almost in a lose, lose' situation. He also points how the lack of both Manu Tuilagi and Steffon Armitage was a telling factor in England's lack lustre showing at their home World Cup.
