Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Saffers were massive, we were panicky and inaccurate and lost an important ball carrier almost instantly in an "it happens" rugby moment. From that point on we were in for a tough time and didn't handle the occasion well. Youngs was dreadful, and as much as I've defended Eddie on here in the past ab...

:thumbup: Sock, MitB @Lord Denning, Wales' attacking lineout is dogmuck as it basically always has been but defensively it's not bad.

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

We won a World Cup with Matt Dawson and Kyran Bracken at scrum half. Our handling was so great today that few of Youngs' shonky passes mattered, but he took his box kicks intelligently, played intelligently at the maul, kept the pace up and showed good awareness to score the try, chalked off though ...

Ford stripping the ball off Laulala was a huge moment for me. I'm going to be rewatching this one a lot though because it was scintillating. England were far from error free but defensively were just massive. 19 turnovers. That's where we won the game
