07/12/2020 | sport | rugbyunion | 980
England showed they can adapt under pressure in the Autumn Nations Cup final but there is room for improvement in their attack, says Matt Dawson.

If you wanted somebody in the rough house with you it would be Farrell. Not the most gifted of players but, like his father, hard as nails. Mentally and physically.

That's why EJ likes him and why all the ABE's on here are s**t scared of him.
'Cheap shot' Farrell, as hard as nails?? Someone has been on the bevvy a bit early today. Most of us have crapped harder than him. Removed

Worrying times indeed.

I’d rather be waking up as Eddie Jones than Pivac where worry is concerned.
Worrying times indeed if you even think about waking up as someone else..... hope everything is ok for you. Removed

You are truly obsessed with England and Eddie Jones!

Seriously, why? Do you secretly yearn to change nationality or something?
You don't hardly ever post on Wales rugby HYS - and when you do it's only about England of course - but constantly on Englands.

We're flattered, so much interest in the top team in NH.
6N Champions and Autumn Nations Cup Champions.
You sound perturbed...... stop responding to my posts and your u may feel better......show some will power, be a grown up. Removed

With all the Welsh and Scottish fans on this England HYS giving advice on how England should play I wonder if Jones is taking calls from Pivac and Townsend?

Hmmm, no wait those two teams finished 4th and 5th didn't they. And exactly how many finals have those teams been in?

What's that, none you say?

But the Welsh and Scots are such experts surely?

Struggling a bit are you Jon Hart?.

I'm sure from a point of perspective, that a view outside of the (red) ?? tinted glasses brigade, these HYS forums offer non biased views & opinions from rugby contributors of all shapes & sizes and nationality

However like many other things that's become apparent with $teadys $election$ the die is cast

And...Jon Hart maybe that doesn't sit or bode with you?

Another England HYS populated by trolling Welshmen. They should have their own HYS dedicated to slagging off English rugby, while the proper fans can get on with it. Yes, we have our own trolls, but not on this scale

I can't believe the arrogance of Eddie Jones. People pay what £100 to watch a game of international rugby and all England can do is kick and not very well at that. William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran with it - that is what it is, a running game of skill to find ways of beating your opponents. England's PLan B - see Plan A. England's Plan C - see Plan B.
Kicking has always been part of the game.

England are not the only team kicking the ball a lot.

Grow up.

When i was at School, the Wallabies visited, to play on the Close, as all visiting sides did. We as the 1st XV were invited to participate in the training. This was the era of the Ella brothers in the backs, and they practiced there moves at one point wearing blindfold, probably a party piece, but they didn't drop the ball once. Straight hands, miss1, miss2, double miss, all perfectly executed.

There is so much baloney talked about these things.

South Africa won a world cup final playing "anti-rugby" and it was apparently great! Wales won the 2019 6N scoring the fewest number of tries in the competition...apparently a triumph!

I guess it's a matter of who's doing it and I don't suppose that Eddie Jones bases his game plan on the impotent rantings of a few internet trolls

For the vast majority of Wales and scotland supporters, they don't like England whomever the coach is anyway. If Eddie Jones gets up their noses further, good for him.
Why would any contributor to a rugby HYS choose a name as 'skirt land' and expect anyone to take any comment made by him/her seriously? Removed

I must admit, I've never taken your name seriously on the odd occasions I've read your posts. Often your opinions are biased rather than the truth. The 'unconfortable' bit seems like you're giving yourself way too much credit also.

Thought England did well to pull France back. Reacting and getting the job done in tough matches is something England's detractors claim they can't do.
Funny, I can't remember Steve Thompson.

That aside, this state of affairs has been known about for years and nobody has really addressed it. The professional era has accustomed us to "car-crash" rugby with ever bigger players and ever bigger impacts.

The modern game has rewarded those players and coaches prepared to be physically reckless. It has to stop!

Really? You don't remember him? Top hooker, one of the main players but of course others were higher profile like Wilko, Johno, Dallagio, etc.
BTW, whoever is down voting the posts about the dementia article you need to leave these HYS immediately. Disgraceful.

Tackling is still too high, where the chest is being hit you still see the head snapping back. Perhaps the bar for high tackles should be lowered to the chest?

The breakdown also seems to be a place of high impact collisions. Can this be refereed differently?
Shame on contributor Steve D for making “jokes” about ex-Wales rugby player Alex Popham’s dementia diagnosis before the comments were pulled.

Utterly distasteful.
