London - England's World Cup final defeat brings to the end another era and there will be a new-look side when the team take on Wales in the Six Nations opener on 2 February.
Not wholesale changes, maybe, but Jason Robinson has already retired, while others could follow in the coming months. Brian Ashton - or whoever is the coach by then - will have free rein to start again with his selection.
We asked you earlier on Mark Orlovac's blog from Paris to send in your ideas of England's Six Nations starting XV.
From a very rough survey of about 20 replies, we've compiled the following composite England side.
15. Josh Lewsey (Mathew Tait very close behind)
14. Paul Sackey
13. Mathew Tait
12. Toby Flood
11. David Stettle
10 Jonny Wilkinson
9. Harry Ellis
1. Andrew Sheridan
2. George Chuter
3. Matt Stevens
4. Simon Shaw
5. Ben Kay (Tom Palmer close behind)
6. Lewis Moody (James Haskell close behind)
7. Tom Rees
8. Nick Easter
As ever, there will be plenty of other opinions out there, so feel free to get back in touch and debate the side. Obviously, injuries and form will have plenty to say for themselves in the next few months but it will be interesting to see whether this bears any relation to the 15 that do eventually run out at Twickenham in February.
