I'm choked for England's players after watching a game they really should have won.
The papers will obviously go overboard about the missed kicks at goal by Charlie Hodgson and Olly Barkley and it's true we should have been 20 points clear at half-time.
But the real question for me now is where is Andy Robinson and his team going to go from here?
To me England looked leaderless on the pitch, and there are clear comparisons to be drawn with the narrow defeats to both Wales and Australia. England had chances to close out all three of the games they have lost, and their inability to do that is costing them.
Rugby has to be played in the opposition's half, or even their 22, but at the moment we simply aren't doing that, and that comes down to inexperience across the board.
I wonder if there are any messages getting on to the field from Andy Robinson and his coaching staff.
I feel sorry for Charlie Hodgson because he has played with different centre and scrum half combinations in each of the recent internationals.
Mathew Tait was good enough to play last week but not good enough to play this week, and the fact that there were five changes made after the Wales game smacks of England hitting the panic button.
I really hope that they don't make another five changes for the Ireland game because they need to get some continuity into the side.
The important thing now is that England go away and become a better side as a result of this experience. England teams in the past have always improved and learned from defeats and I'm sure that this one will as well.
But it is not just the players who need to improve but also the management. You have to ask why we had seven outstanding players on the substitutes bench, and in contrast to the French, we seemed reluctant to use ours.
The challenge now to this group of players is to see if they can pick themselves up.
Ireland will go into the game against England as favourites and that could work to England's advantage. The pressure is off England now as no-one expects them to win against Ireland, so they need to go out and enjoy themselves.
