Against the Poms

940kg or so with two big centres as well

The Poms on the other hand have brought in the less physical Ewels at lock ahead of Hill, which makes little sense

But then again not much of what Eddie does these days makes sense

France knows how to keep it simple when it matters to do so... logic without fancy tactics.    

I think the Pommies are lost.

I don’t have a good feeling about this :(

France have Gregory Alldritt. He's all the advantage they need.

Not having Eddie Jones as Coach is all the advantage they need !

I like Eddie, but I think that he has lost the dressing  room and some of the  old heads  are letting  him down. But, like so many international coaches, people have figured him out now and know how to play against  England. Not sure any other  coach will make England better. 

But,  it speaks volume as  a  Coach. Took a brumbies team which no  one gave a chance and turned them into champions by playing some of the best rugby. 

Was really successful as an  Aussie coach only to be denied a gold  medal by the greatest english team of all time. 

Spent some time in the wilderness, coached Japan to a historic victory of the boks. 

Took over England  and made them  the  number 1  team. 

He just seems to blow  it when it  counts and  that is WC finals. 

But  all teams go through dips. 

I  definitely thinks he need to drop some of his old  players and  get some of the better and younger players broken in. 

France is a team on the up

I'm sure Jake White is already updating his résumé.

Please God no !!

It’s pretty obvious now that Eddie didn’t make Jake, Jake made Eddie. But it’s been so long ago Eddie has forgotten his lessons.

Eddie is a better coach than Jake

Ah that Watson virus, there is no vaccination for the Watsonistas. It starts with a a sense of confusion, morphs into agitation and then goes dormant only to flair up again when the words Jake White are uttered. A bit like malaria ..perhaps  a good dose of hcq Dave, it’s not a cure but it could alleviate the brain flatulence.

Nope plain and simple Eddie is a better coach than Jake

Good old Luke has sweet fuck all to do with my evaluation of Jake as a coach - not a single percentage

The fact that Jake could not handle Watson just reinforces the well documented fact that Jake is a poor people manager

If I had to choose between Jake and Eddie to coach my side, it would be Eddie hands down

Dupointe scores the first try in under 2 minutes. Go France!!!!!

Close Game, France looking good.

Well done England. They were very good to beat this excellent French team. 

Mar 13, 2021, 21:13

Good game

Best game of the tournament so far. Very high quality game play particularly in the first half. I think the teams got tired in the second half hence a higher error count as the game went on. Despite the loss I think its onwards and upwards for this French team. England's first good game of the tournament. Be interesting to see if they can maintain that in the final game.

Bit stressful at times, but a very good game nonetheless. 

Just hope we can keep it up and improve next week against Ireland.
