Firstly, may I say how sorry I am to hear about your father, Rooinek. I'm sure it's been a tough few weeks for you, so my sincere condolences to you and your family.
Obviously I am disappointed for this England side to have failed at this year's final hurdle, but I don't think I was the only one who felt that this was certainly a match too far for them this year. Wales were too good a side on the day and I have no problem with that at all.
As long as we learn from the experience and from the way Wales played against us in winning the Championship, then I feel we are on the right track.
Overall, I am still happy with the way things are going. We've achieved a lot very quickly and I hope we continue to improve in the manner we have done so thus far. We have some good players waiting in the wings and I think we have many reasons to be hopeful for future successes.
Not a good day to be an England supporter, but a good day to be Welsh.
