BRITS GET BRUTAL AFTER WORLD CUP EMBARRASSMENT

Someone must have given the English rugby league squad a mighty dressing down in the wake of their massive loss to Australia last week.

After a 52-4 drubbing by the Roos, they’re working at every opportunity to fix up holes in their defence, and even the kids at a sports gala in Newcastle today weren’t spared.

As if being smashed in front of your friends isn’t tough enough, imagine being squished by more than 100 kilos of British brawn.
