What a great game by Courtney today. Big carries, two lineout steals and that tackle on Bastardeu.

His injury absence last season means he has come back fitter and stronger and is seriously competing for the England starting 15.

That was a cracker
Trouble is Courtneyís standards are so high that itís just expected from him
I also thought Englandís loose forwards 6 and 7 where exceptionall today
Iím probably old fashioned but their prime job is tackling harassing and the breakdown
They caused all sorts of problems for the French
Iím not keen on loose forwards who spend a lot of time stuck out on the wing letting others do the hard graft that they should be doing

When Samu Manoa was here Courtney said in an interview that they had a personal battle about who could put in the hardest tackle during the game. He said that he only tackled the little guys hard though whereas Manoa hit everyone hard. Well that looks like it has definitely changed judging by today's game. Well played Courtney.

Courtney has always had ridiculous ability, it just seems this past twenty four months (Eddie Jones?) he's moved on to winning the war not just the battles.

We should be incredibly proud of Courts, one of "ours" that worked so hard to ensure his natural skills went on to be world class.

very well summarised, he has also grown from quiet guy into a leader and inspiration for younger players

I didn't see the French enjoying seeing Billy on the wing shirking his hard graft!
