England need to beat Wallabies to prove their mettle

Jack and I travelled to Twickenham on Saturday in hope but privately expecting a 20 to 30 points thrashing; so we came away pleased but knowing we do not have the players or the tactics to beat them. Not yet anyway.

Here's where they are better:

** offside at rucks

** only committing 3-4 forwards to mauls and rucks which allows the others to act as battering rams elsewhere (boring though that is)

** tactical kicking

** throwing the ball in at the lineout

** having backs that can move the ball at speed from first phase compared to our carthorses

** it always looked as though they might score from anywhere on the park

** lineouts

Likely changes for Australia on Saturday:

** wing (Cueto is passed his sell by date)

** hooker (Hartley)

** centre (Tindall)
