    Looked like Care passed the ball way out in front of a retreating Lawes so ford had to run onto a pass he couldn’t see, directly into a defender. Poor.

    Underhill definitely looks more like a blindside,
    Underhill/Curry would comfortably best option

    Can't wait for 6. Lawes, 7. Isiekwe, 8. Shields

    It’d be nice if Owens was up for looking at Japan too, they’re offside continuously.

    Everyone saw Clive’s “score 8 tries” thing before the game, right?

    As in the first half, powerful carries followed up with intent and it’s easy.

    As you shouldn’t, it was just a demonstration of him being completely out of touch.

    More in touch than Barnes though, who think that Japan 2018 is directly equivalent of Japan 1986

    That penalty went the wrong way, Lawes didn't release before going for the ball
