Not been a great game but if the Baa baa's had some composure, they could be well ahead here. Some of Englands young lads playing very well, future is bright for England rugby.

How was that deemed to go forward? He tried to offload backwards, it hit the England player and between them it shot up in the air?

Went forward then hit the knee.

Front row has done very well. Collier and genge looking good in the scrum. Beaumont a bit meh. Underhill curry and Wilson look good.

I'm not so sure it has tbh. Genge & Collier seem to spend have the time with their knees on the floor, I don't know what the ref has been seeing the first 60mins. We look better with Nel on mind, he looks way off being fit.

Pack looked very good. Curry got man of the match. Backs looked ok but struggled not having enough cover for midfield on the bench.

Curry was excellent, next generation looking great. Shame for Underhill as he waa very aggresive, him and Curry would be an intresting combo.

Underhill looks very physical while Curry looks to be the more intelligent player. Some very nice options for England to consider in the future.
