England impresses

LONDON - Clive Woodward thinks England's impressive win over Wales in the Six Nations makes them "serious contenders" for next year's World Cup.

And he's paid them the ultimate compliment by saying the manner of their success reminded him of the England team he guided to World Cup glory back in 2003.

England's 29-18 victory on Sunday had added significance as it was the last time they will play Wales, the two-time defending Six Nations champions, at Twickenham until a 2015 World Cup pool match in a "group of death" also featuring Australia.

"It is one year, six months and 16 days until England and Wales meet again here at Twickenham in what will be the most anticipated World Cup pool match in history," Woodward said.
