Just watched the game back after attending our game (Northampton) this afternoon. Very impressed with England to be honest. Tactically their appeared to be a significant improvement from previous clashes with Australia. Did the basics well and moved the ball effectively when the chances arose. We created space. We isolated defenders. Haven't seen England do that in a long time. Our shape in attack was much improved in my opinion. Again, I haven't seen England score a try like Ryan Hall's for a long time. 3 dummy runners sent in and a walk over in the corner. Players attacking the line and producing crisp passes at speed. Add in the likes of James Graham and Sean O'Loughlin and we will see the bar rise up another notch in my opinion. Both awesome leaders and quality players who will make a huge difference in the forwards. That's not to say the guys who played today were poor, just the opposite. George Burgess and Chris Hill were exceptional today. Negatives. Doesn't matter what sport you are looking at, discipline is paramount at International level. As soon as the replacements came on and the intensity died down a touch, England started to make basic errors. England actually made errors on three consecutive sets of six leading up to Australia's first try. Tom Burgess had an average game in my opinion. That said, he will improve. Had our rotation been Graham, Sam Burgess, George Burgess, Hill and Mossop I suspect England would have won that game. I thought the level of officiating in relation to certain calls was average to say the least but there you go. We lost a huge amount of threat when James Roby went off and Kevin Sinfield went in at 9 though. Thought that was a bizarre call myself. What it did prove though in my opinion is that we have some awesome players - up front in particular! Hill, Ferres, all the props and James Roby were exceptional. George Burgess is simply incredible. Really happy with the performance and were unlucky to walk away without the points in my opinion. As I say, with the guys who didn't play today coming back in we will go from strength to strength in my opinion.
