As a host nation you expect the time leading up to a Rugby World Cup to be a positive and comfortable one however it is fair to say that for England Rugby it has been a touch more turbulent than they would have liked.
Diet and whole food is what will make the difference. You need to train and you need to train hard. However, you need to get your diet right as well. Then over time you will definitely get the results you want. If you don't focus on diet you will just meet frustration and disappointment!
The harsh reality is that come Saturday evening one of England or Ireland will be nursing their wounds in defeat and will head into this Rugby World Cup off the back of two straight losses. The thought of it being England is too painful to think about right now, by hook or by crook England must muscle past Ireland on home soil.
As a popular team sport in the UK rugby stands alone in terms of its physicality, football is on a different planet altogether and whilst American Football obviously isn't for the fainthearted the pads make it just a touch tamer in my eyes!!
With Britain's recent success at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing, achieving 4 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronzes, you cannot help but feel proud of the team's achievements, transcending ethnic differences for a cultural identity of inclusiveness and support for one another.
