English rugby approaches crisis point?

Lawrence Dallaglio announces his retirement from international rugby (methinks to save himself for the 2005 Lions tour) and Sir Clive Woodward's future is suddenly in doubt: I love football and I go to as many games as I possibly can. I never had that passion for rugby I have for football. I never got into rugby in the same way.

All this comes on the back of the post-World cup sequence of losses and retirements of important players. It seems the World cup triumph was the beginning of the end, and not the start of a period of domination.
