Jeremy Guscott criticises the off-the-field antics of some of England's players at the World Cup.

Former England international Jeremy Guscott has criticised the current's squad behaviour off the field in the New Zealand.

England's World Cup campaign so far has been shrouded in controversy, with centre Mike Tindall grabbing a number headlines after being caught on CCTV hugging and kissing a woman just weeks after his marriage to the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips.

Further problems arose for coach Martin Johnson when James Haskell, Dylan Hartley and Chris Ashton were forced to apologise following inappropriate comments made to a female member of hotel staff.

"[Their behaviour] is beyond belief," said former outside centre Guscott. "To tell you the truth it is staggering.

"Martin Johnson's got a few kids on the squad that aren't acting as though they're playing for England, or at a World Cup.

"The last thing Johnson wants is to be sat at a press conference having to fire fight questions from journalists."

England have reached the quarter-finals of the competition and face France this weekend for a place in the final four.
