Re: England Team - good grief!

It was a crucial grinding win...
The mitigation against that is that the Boks played back up players an the weather played into the England forwards hands. In that regard, both Robshaw and Marler had decent games.
The scrum was stable and the lineout pretty good.
Youngs only had to kick for territory which was good enough.

More interested in the body language and I think Cipriani was not welcomed by some. Of course he was the junior partner but if Jones presides over a fragmented cliquey squad that is a massive reason why he should go.

So, we won on the day, didn't prove anything but our forwards are good when the weather is against team rugby and we can't all now say the garden is rosy.
Grateful for the win but......

I expect a thorough post mortem.
