Monye normally talks dribble but why has Flatman started doing that as well?

England look like they are expecting a victory. Very loose and nowhere near the required intensity.

Gotta feel for Italy though, a decent kicker would have them 6-0 up.

Eddie needs to make an example of someone, take them off and drop them from the squad.

Early signs are England thought they were going to walk this. They have turned up for a training session.

I have been a huge fan of Mike Brown...but I think the time has come for him to move aside.

Think we need someone at the back there who can mix up their play...not just the predictable run it through a crowd of players.

Brown is an absolute pleb for not passing to May earlier about 5 mins ago.

Clever tactic from Italy but Poite isn't reffing it well - there's been several rucks where he's called tackle only incorrectly

It's not in the spirit of the game, Italy should be thrown out the six nations.

Yes, but the Ref keeps missing the non tackling Italian player forming the ruck!

Gotta give COS credit, this tactic has totally thrown us.

I expect EJ will sort them out at half time with a counter plan still though.

where do the laws say the players have to initiate the contact for a ruck - surely if an opposing player binds to you you're in the ruck?

Yes, but the Ref keeps missing the non tackling Italian player forming the ruck!

If Danby Care can drop the gormless pointing routine at the tackle and starts getting the forwards to just pick and drive the centre of the tackle area where the Italians are light then you can make easy yards.

Even more Care could be looking for the box kick crossfield as the Italians aren't well stocked out wide.

Is Poite not correct? If Italy only have one player making the tackle its not a ruck? It only becomes a ruck if the defence commits another player to the breakdown?

Best bet to get around it would be for the tackled player to pick the ball up and carry on.
