3 England stars who didn’t impress against South Africa – and who should replace them for the Six Nations

#2. Tom Curry

Replacement: Move Curry to flanker and play Alex Dombrandt number 8

JOE: “Ran into a couple of brick walls on carries. Missed a couple of tackles.”

Telegraph: “Hard going with the pack on the back foot but still managed to get his head over the ball and won a couple of crucial penalties. Needs moved back to the flank.”

Evening Standard: “Understated at times but ever a menace at the breakdown and the busiest of England’s loose forward trio. Took the captaincy with Lawes off and perhaps took the wrong option with the penalty on halfway – Steward’s big boot might have had a chance. Needs to be back on the flank.:”
