England left embarrassed by Grand Slam video

The England rugby team have been left embarrassed after a video celebrating a grand slam victory which never happened was leaked to YouTube.

Martin Johnson’s side were favourites to beat Ireland last Saturday in Dublin and claim England’s first grand slam since 2003. However, they were thumped 24-8 by the hosts.

The Nike produced video features England players Toby Flood, Chris Ashton, Ben Foden and Mark Cueto which was meant to be part of an advertising campaign which included 5,000 commemorative t-shirts.

The Telegraph reproduced a leaked internal Nike email regarding England’s expected victory and subsequent advertising push which had the title ‘When we win against Ireland’. Shame they didn’t send it to the players.

Check out the video below.
