Henderson did well there, gets on the ball when George was trying to buy some yards or con Porter into a penalty.

Bring going on for too many games.

I’ve also seen enough of JGP at this level to say we have better than him.
Wouldn’t be too harsh on JGP, no scrum half will play well behind a pack getting demolished
Yep and his 10 hasn’t offered himself to help.

They are different players. Roux a tighthead for his power in the tight. Henderson a loosehead for his carrying.

We have quality coming though the next 3 years - don’t you watch under 20’s?

Apparently not earlier on in the week.

Scrum improve once that great mammoth lock Roux goes off to be replaced by a less powerful lock. :roll:

They are playing different positions in the scrum. Herring replacing Kelleher is the difference maker in the scrum.

Aki Farrell is a uniquely mediocre center pairing.

Itoje is such a world class pain in the ass player.....which reflects this English team pretty well.
