Given that you've subjected yourself to the horror of rewatching that match, with that specific in mind - what's the answer?
Fords kicking out of hand is 50 50 most of the timeIm a big Georgie fan, but certainly on rewatching, i wondered why there were so many high pumped crossfield kicks on a day like that, and then so many times he tried to find the 5m channel as well, which is nigh impossible in swirling winds like that. I felt he took too many risks with his kicking game, when drilled grubbers, or pumping it for distance would've been the way too go, that or up and unders to challenge. Definitely not his best game for England, and a more clinical team couldve punished him for the territory he gave away
Hard to tell, faulty Scotland line out combined with potential knock ons from soaking wet balls thus not getting the territory. Kicking it out on the full may actually have been more beneficial....I personally read nowt into it other than in these conditions running ball certainly into wind may have been more productive..
