Only the points matter at the moment.
They missed out on the points. They remarkably failed to secure a bonus point, which condemns them to playing Australia in the quarter finals, and its not 2003 anymore.

Well they probably would have played Australia either way. But the wost part isn't that England failed to stamp any kind of authority on the game against a minnow nation, its that they played like they didn't care. Its an attitude thing more than anything else, which is a problem.
