Difficult take for Steward but you'd expect him to claim it. Put us under pressure undo pressure

Exactly, Francis was straight on his knees..

Randall kicking is pretty good, very impressed. He has distance.

Based on this game so far don't think France have much to worry about for that slam.

Shades of Haskell vs the post! Did look for all the world live like he just had to roll, but replay shows there was some excellent defence.

As it pans out England might actually be better off if they can make this scrum pay off having "won" the yellow card

Sanjay very nearly got away with that to be fair.

With the scrums being a mess so far I'm not sure with that call to be honest. Hopefully it pays off.

Or tap and go through LCD. They took the scrum as a midfield platform is a lethal opportunity but the scrums are a mess. Tap and go, set a midfield ruck and use that as your platform with space both sides. Stupid play. Not for the first time this tournament.

That's really abysmal body position from Dombrandt. Looking for the big collision instead of just looking after the ball. Genge used to do it all the time when he first stepped up. Went in high looking to send the tackler flying but just loses the ball.

Exactly. Randall has put up some good kicks but Nowell is getting nowhere near.

Cuthbert the best English winger on the pitch!
