Rokoduguni set for England Test return

Share

Head coach Eddie Jones is unrepentant over the delay, despite Fiji naming their team on Thursday as scheduled.

Flanker Teimana Harrison and Launchbury were driven over from lineouts, and Farrell's conversions took him past 500 points, second only to Jonny Wilkinson on England's all-time points list.

"All the boys performed really well so I'm honoured to be named man of the match". Jones believes that by denying the Pacific Islanders the opportunity to play their natural game, which is based upon athleticism, creativity and dazzling running lines, they will eventually lose focus to the benefit of his Grand Slam champions.

The Lions will play three Tests against New Zealand in June and July next year.

'There's no way we've come anywhere near maximising the talent yet. "It was an incredible performance from him and he's going from strength to strength".

But if England were to pick a virtual second string side for today's game then it nullifies the importance of a match. His pace and vision have been fully transferred from club level to the worldwide arena.

"This game wasn't a day where he could do that, but he automatically attracts defenders which creates space for other guys".

Fisher praises Goff, laments Rams' penalties in latest loss
The Rams defense was dominant all day and were carrying the term on their proverbial shoulders midway through the fourth quarter. We don't go into games hoping that we're going to win 10-9 or 6-3, we expect to score points.

Nine tries were amassed in the second autumn worldwide, with Jonathan Joseph, Semesa Rokoduguni and Joe Launchbury crossing the try line twice and with less than half an hour on the clock England had surged 34-0 ahead.

"We dropped off at certain times but it's always hard when you get a big lead to maintain that intensity".

"I'm very happy for the players and the fans, but this is only the start for us", said Italy coach Conor O'Shea.

"How to keep our intensity and foot on the throat is a lesson for us".

England started the autumn series by beating South Africa 37-21, for its first win over the Springboks in 10 years. Fiji will have a team in Australia's National Rugby Championship next year, Olympic gold mania has already struck Suva, a Super Rugby outfit is being talked about and who knows the governing bodies might lob them a bit more cash. World Rugby has finally begun taking steps to address this, with the possibility of a Fijian/pacific island Super Rugby franchise apparently in development (after writing that sentence the Fijian Rugby Union have gone on record saying they had no idea a Fijian Super Rugby franchise was in development). They're exciting and they've changed their style from scrum, maul and kick to becoming an adaptable side.

On the positive side, we put Fiji under a lot of pressure and we executed a fair amount of times and came away with nine tries.

"They're a physical, fast, expansive team with the ability to use a tight game if they need to".
