World (Rugby) Cup Again!

I know I promised that I had finished the world cup jokes but thsi one was so funny it just had to be shared. Via email from Aussie Courier.

Johnny Wilkinson goes into the England changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum. "What's up?" he asks. "Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but we've just beaten France and South Africa and let's be honest it's only Australia. They're crap and we can't be bothered".
Johnny looks at them and says "Well, the way I've been playing recently, I reckon I can beat them by myself, you lads go down the pub."
So Johnny goes out to play Australia by himself and the rest of the England team go off for a few jars. After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the telly on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads "England 7 - Australia 0 (Wilkinson - 10 minutes - Converted Try)". He is beating Australia all by himself! Anyway, the telly goes off and a few more pints later the game is forgotten until someone remembers "It must be full time now, let's see how Johnny got on". They put the telly back on. "Result from the Stadium: England 7 (Wilkinson 10 minutes) - Australia 7 (Sailor 79 minutes)". They can't believe it, Johnny has single handedly got a draw against Australia!!
They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sat with his head in his hands. He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down, I've let you down." says Johnny. "Don't be daft, you got a draw against Australia, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very very end!" says the rest of the team. "No, No, I have" says Johnny, "I've let you down... I got sent off after 12 minutes"
