Rugby World Cup 2011: Steve Thompson relieved at Courtney Lawes verdict

England hooker Steve Thompson admits the team are relieved that lock Courtney Lawes has only received a two-match ban for his challenge on Argentina's Mario Ledesma in the Rugby World Cup last Saturday.

England next face Georgia on 18 September and Thompson urges his team to put in a "better performance" than they did in their opening 13-9 victory over Argentina.
