Told you. 😀😀😀😀

Cant wait to see Eddie Jones interview.

I must admit, Eddie Jones and Dylan Hartley were very gracious in defeat. Credit where credits due. 

Eddies press interviews in the run up to Paris might be a spikey though.

You know he will have been absolutely screwing in the dressing room. The English lads will be getting run ragged during training no doubt.

I get the impression he might take a defeat like that to get his players focused for the future. 

He'd rather lose a game in this 6 nations than the next world cup.

What the hell am I watching here... 

Gone to bloody pot have England.

Looked better later on with quick short passes off the back of the ruck to the 10 channel and a dynamic pacy forward making yards. 

Then it stopped again. We look too ponderous. Props are slow,  the loose forwards too heavy and not quick enough to the breakdown. 

Basically we are poor atm and Ireland will fancy it next week.

Agreed but we will probably win next week.

England have looked intimidated by teams who go hard at them.

When the up and at ‘em players, Haskell and Sinckler came on we at least made some advances. 

Daly’s quick pass to May was a rare moment of class.

Itoje has looked barely half the player of last season. 

Playing locks out of position as flankers has backfired.

If Dan Cole gets any slower he'll stop altogether. 

Our set piece seems to have collapsed. 

Our scrum half plays off the back of the ruck are desperately slow,  telegraphed and poorly executed in the main.

What upsets me most is that only 18 months ago we played scintillating stuff to win 3-0 in Australia. I know that the 6 nations is different but we seem to have gone backwards in so many areas.
