England need to be more radical in selection in QF v France

You are here: Home / Blog / Sport / England need to be more radical in selection in QF v France
England bored themselves but had the last laugh by beating a tired Scotland 16-12 to qualify for the QFs whilst their opponents were sent home for the first time in RWC history.

For England they have to drop Tindall and Wilkinson to the bench; the need to resolve their back row which has little creativity and look again at the front row. In the lineouts, Scotland had far too many options and Steve Thompson's throwing in remains a problem.

Can they beat France in the QFs next weekend? As ever it depends which French team turns up. England is their bogey side twice beating them in the semi-finals in 2003 and 2007. France lost to Tonga and have been all at sea.

England must be favourites despite itself.
