Eddie Jones Makes Four Changes To England Team For Scotland Clash

Eddie Jones Makes Four Changes To England Team For Scotland Clash

■ FLANKER Vicky Fleetwood will make her first Women's Six Nations start of the season tomorrow when England go for the Grand Slam against Scotland at Twickenham.

But Scotland produced a sensational comeback to grab five second half tries to lead 38-31 on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

However, England imploded and Scotland led 38-31 into added time, on the cusp of a first Twickenham success since 1983.

However, the drama wasn't over yet, and Farrell's replacement Ford remarkably crossed the line in the very last phase of play, converting the try to salvage a draw and break Scottish hearts. 'We've got a good plan in place for him, ' said the head coach.

"It is the last week of the tournament so it's exciting".

"It's not something you can fix easily, it's going to take some digging deep into the team's psyche". "I think we are clearly getting really good clarity about the way we want to play and the way we can be the best in the world".

"It's a bit of a recurring theme for us".

"We let our foot off of the gas and couldn't get control of the game back", he said.

However, my T-Mobile data connection at home wasn't fast enough to actually play anything, but I was able to get connected. It supports the Steam Controller over Bluetooth, as well as other Bluetooth controllers, mice, and keyboards.


"Our first half there was some exceptional rugby". Instead there is work to do and it will be all the more problematic for Jones and his coaches that his players now return to their clubs.

"It is a great lesson for us, and or finishers did exceptionally well to get us out of jail in the end". It's always a combination of things. Just lacking that discipline to do the simple things over and over again. We were seduced by the scoreboard, but it was a lesson and we are all disappointed. We need to get the right people in to fix it. That's when you get a good player and that's what we're doing with him.

Jones clung to the positives of experiencing the setback now, rather than in Japan.

Eddie Jones has called up 119 players since he took over as head coach - and at least 88 of those will be left at home. But it's a lesson. "You do that against Tonga in the pool stages of the World Cup for example and then you find yourselves in a hard situation going forward".

CEO Sloan pitches Wells Fargo turnaround to bank critics in Congress
Sloan spoke as his bank remains under an unusual Federal Reserve measure imposed past year to restrict its growth. The bank has also shaken up its board of directors and improved wages and benefits for its workers, Sloan said.


England captain Owen Farrell, meanwhile, struggled to explain what had happened during the second half.

"But we gave them some easy points, and we couldn't get control of the game back". We've had close games and not played at our best sometimes.

The visitors were rampant and Graham got his second with another free-flowing score, before the deficit was wiped out completely when Finn Russell picked off Farrell's pass to cross, with Greig Laidlaw kicking the extras.

Doesn't mean Eddie Jones won't still be desperate for victory in the oldest global rugby match of them all.

Google jumps on the foldable phone bandwagon, files patent
It is worth noting that Google has neither confirmed nor denied that it is now hard at works on a phone that folds in half. All I'm saying is, don't expect the folding Google Pixel (Fixel?) this Autumn alongside the Pixel 4 series.


"The massive improvement for us is in our mindset", he said.
