“Consistency” – Mike Brown names his England XV for series decider

Mike Brown has called for consistency from England, suggesting only two sensible changed for their series decider against Australia.

“England have found a winning blueprint and need to build on it by adding consistency through whole matches,” wrote Brown.

“If they can replicate that first half throughout the decider then I fully expect them come away with a 2-1 series victory.

“The best England teams over the last couple of years have had a dominant defence, squeezing teams to make errors, and that needs to be in their DNA. Backed up with some smart, tactical kicking, they will be difficult to stop.”
