For 60 minutes France dominated proceedings even more convincingly than the Boks did in the WC. Then true to form they then brought on some youngsters who made mistake after mistake and props who couldn’t scrum....so the English had a distant sniff.
But this is a poor English team. Farrell is not an effective center....Ford and Young’s are awful under pressure. The back row overrated. Even Itoje, who the Financial Times declared the best rugby player on the planet in their Saturday magazine, was toothless.
Face it Eddie’s best moments came under Jake. He did an awful job preparing England for the Boks......and once again today, his team came out flat.
France may grow after this win....they have some potent forwards and DuPont/Ntamack are the best young halfback pairing in the game.
