England have been knocked out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup after a humiliating 33-13 loss to Australia at Twickenham. Two defeats in Pool A, including a 28-25 loss to Wales at the same ground the week before, mean that England are the first host nation to fail to make it to the knockout stages of their own tournament.
So where did it all go wrong for England? Are the players mainly to blame, the coaching structure under Stuart Lancaster, or something system at the heart of the Rugby Football Union (RFU)?
Also, where will England go from this debacle? Will Stuart Lancaster retain his job, or will a new coach be brought in?
IBTimes UK sport editor Nick Howson analyses why England were so bad during the World Cup, who ultimately lies at fault for such a poor tournament and what the RFU needs to do in order to recover from this disaster.
