England v Italy

Post by Mark62 » Fri Sep 06, 2019 9:42 pm

England win 37-0 Ben Youngs man of the match first try for Ellis Genge, Ford and Farrell looking more and more like starting 10 and 12

I thought Farrell was poor at 10, kicked ball away poorly from hand. Mark Wilson was my MOM, closely followed by Youngs and May. Dynamic changes early in front row!

Certainly Ford for 10.

Wilson and Curry both Excellent Youngs probably just about edged it creatively. Agree with the point re Farrell. Ford Farrell Manu my midfield

Great gesture by Ellis at the end to give his shirt to a lad he has been speaking to who also has Dyspaxia

Much better performance from Youngs, will only get better too with more gametime. England looking much better with the Ford Farrell axis.

Only player I thought was average was Kvesic when he came on. Just doesn’t seem to have what it takes at test level. Great premiership player, maybe lacks some physicality.

Let’s remember this Kvesic’s first test in 6 years, very easy for him to be absorbed by the occasion and I never thought of him as much of a finisher.

That looks the favourite midfield currently. Cockanasiga and May on the wings with Watson at 15. Harsh on Daly but he covers most of the backline from the bench. Two flyhalfs with two powerful and pacey ball carriers alongside two speedsters.

Marchant looked good at 13 but a rampaging Manu would have got a couple of tries against that Italian defense.

Given he only has 2 caps and one of those was filling in in the back row really surprised Singleton hasn't started one of these tests at hooker

Was surprised at the lack of attention on social media Kvesic’s return to international rugby, given that BT Sport etc have been gunning for it for a while.

I don't think he is in the travelling 31.

Similar to Marchant and just filling out the squad currently.

Never said he was in the 31 but still for someone who everyone on twitter has been banging on for ages for Jones to play him there was very little attention to his return to international rugby.
