England's attack looking pretty toothless so far. Some of the basics just not happening. The ball presentation is really poor and the players static when taking the ball. Little tweaks could make a big difference here.

It's been OK so far. Just think we'd look miles better if Nowell was on the pitch today. And the midfield looks.....mediocre.

I don't see how that will help anything. He isn't going to get quick ball from bad ball presentation and find holes in a set defence.

He may just pass the ball quicker and better though? Just a thought. The balls there to use.

Eng play is too slow and proscriptive. Too much kicking ball away hoping to pressure a line out and jeezus the carrying and ball presentation is just so awful.

Well given how much possession England have had 6 points isn't enough. Conversely one clean break and one try is pretty good.
If England don't take the lead in the nextc15 minutes then the pressure on them will multiply.

Maybe being a bit pedantic but I don't think the ball went 5m from the line-out that Scotland scored from ... the catcher has his foot on the line and looks like he catches the ball in front of his head ... just saying, maybe a miss by the officials although very close ...

Jones has never been scared to make changes when he sees things as not working. That backline hasn't clicked so how long will he give them?

Or does he just ask them to keep it tighter?

Jones has always been bold at making changes at half time, fair play to him

Scotland 4 point lead at half time. The game is closer than i thought itr would be.

I thought with Scotland having the most settled side would be further in front.

If this game goes into the last 10 still tight Im sure Beshocked will be the first to congratulate Jones on his brilliance for grooming George as a specialist replacement

Daly does well to call the overlap. Youngs and Smith execute well.

Scotland had three or four goes at sacking that maul.

Daly has been really below par, but in attack rather than defence as I thought. The caveat there is the midfield partnership is not a good balance.
