ljkeane Posted February 2, 2020 Share Posted February 2, 2020 So England's new World Cup cycle hasn't started very well. Absolutely terrible first half from England. Having criticised Scotland for their profligacy in the Irish 22 yesterday England have been even worse today, I think it's 5 opportunities in the French 22 they've let slip by without picking up any points. In defence they've really gifted the French 2 tries. The first try they line up wrong for the Thomas break then Youngs just straight up misses the tackle on Rattez. The second try, even if it may have touched Ollivon's arm, May just stops. None of that is down to Eddie Jones as such but with both Vunipolas already out and Tuilagi off it's clear they don't have enough ball carrying options with the balance of the squad he's picked.
