Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Billy V - not back to his best but very difficult as a one out carrier option. Taking the ball standing still and then getting hit on the line does not make for dynamic carries. Farrell is not the answer at 10 but Ford at 10 and Farrell at 12 is also not the answer, especially with no carriers fixin...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Did not like seeing the massive celebrations after that kind of win. Very small time. That was a very poor show. Malins made a difference - only strike runner we had in the backs. Marler was very solid when he came on, very competent and thats what was needed. Itoje excellent again, Launchbury was v...

5 years of EJ, 7 weeks together as a team, well rested, French D team and this is the gameplan, this is the evolution of England.

Re: The Big One - Autumn Nations Cup FINAL

The basics of England today have been appalling. One out twice and kick is not a gameplan. Catch, draw and pass is impossible for this team. Not a single strike runner in the backs to fix the defence. No shifts of carrier in the forwards to fix the defence. The kicking game is a disgrace - truly, tr...

Re: Official Wales v England Match Thread

All in all, pretty crap. Very very poor kicking display, decent defensive display. Real lack of ball carriers creating space, no dynamic player in the backs causes real issues. Really noticeable lack of options for Youngs, generally just one runner. Whenever point of attack was moved, England made r...

Re: Official Wales v England Match Thread

Ford's kicking kills us every time he plays. To short, inaccurate, players stopping rather than attacking onto the ball.

Or attack is so limited. No offloads, no sunny runners, one out carries twice and then a shit up and under.

Really poor.

Re: England v Ireland, Sat Nov 21st, KO @ 1500

Outside of the defence (which has been exceptional in every area) and a worldie from May, it's been disappointing from England. Lack of fluidity, lack of ball retention, lack of territorial control. Some poor decision making in offloads. To memory, zero line breaks... Lots of questions to be answered.

If that's a card then Wales have avoided two reds. Love that this one goes to the TV but Parkes diving headbutt at full head height is ignored.

Not a good second half at all. Dominant in the majority of play but failure to get points.

Why is Poite coaching players on the rules? If a player breaks the rules at the lineout just give a pen.

His pen advantages are weird as well.

Good game. Scotland are going to rue the missed chances, the unforced errors though.
