So watching the build up of the England game and Will Greenwood going through Ill discipline of England's forwards, the three players he picked out were Itoje, George and M Vunipola, to which Clive Woodward responded with if players cannot play on the edge and keep there cool, maybe they shouldn't be in the Team for world cup final? (Although at this rate we will not be anywhere near the world cup final)

Interesting to hear that 3 successful Sarries who always play on the edge seemed to be caught out, is it down to interpretation of the referees or are they simply completely ill disciplined but always get away with it in the premiership?!

Thoughts please people

Don't think any of them "lost their cool" last week. Maro has fessed up to being a bit exictable, but IMHO England and SA were refereed differently last week which could be down to a lack of understanding of the southern hemisphere ref by England.

We are doing ok... one or two little things but we are well up for this and well in it. A little bit more composure is all we need. Being in their faces is ok... we are almost on the right side of it but we need that to stay in the game. Stay on the pitch, stay in the game.
Curry great, Shields is shoring things up and the Saracens boys are taken up the fight.
Sinkler is my concern... not sure he is with the nuance of the game.

Brown and Daly are rotating well and Youngs has speeded up...which he must continue to do.

Mako / Faz - Far too easy to wind up today and last week. Maro coped much better today.
George is not proving himself an international starter for me at the moment.
Billy clearly not fit.

Maro was mostly excellent today, by far our most prominent forward. Jamie OK without being exceptional.

I though Faf de Klerk got right under Maro's skin in first test - he was being an irritating jippy little so & so which is his job. He also played a good game but the patting on the shoulder for penalties is a bit much. For me when Maro dived over early the breakdown at de Klerk and missed him completely leaving the try line open was evidence that he was rattled and not his usual cool calm collected MI that we know & love.
