I think Lancaster and his team showed they were up to it. They got the starting selection just about right. The tactics were spot on. The defence was might. Some mistakes were made on the pitch, but fewer than under the Johson regime.
The bad decision was bringing on Youngs, but he was such a good player even a year ago it was worth a shot.
Lancaster has better credentials than Clive Woodward when he started out (backs coach at Bath).
