Ugly but Effective?
From ITV: "On several occasions in the build-up to the semi-final, when journalists asked had asked him how he expected his fairly stolid team to stand up to the brilliance of the French team, England coach Clive Woodward had talked about the fact that there are no awards dished out for style in Rugby Union and that putting more points on the scoreboard than your opponent was all that mattered - and so it proved on a night when all 24 of England's points came from the boot of Jonny Wilkinson."

I'll bet it was kind of difficult to be pretty in the rain & the wind though, & given the circumstances I'm sure that Wilkinson's performance was, in it's own way, beautiful.
