England fullback Elliot Daly was the main target of criticism after a woeful opening 40 against Ireland in Dublin.
Eddie Jones’ patience with the versatile Lions three-quarter appeared to have run out when his 50th cap against Wales on February 27 saw intent but also produced a couple of glaring errors, but a high-octane cameo against France has restored his coach’s faith.
However, if the social media reaction is anything to go by, he hasn’t enjoyed the best first half. A kick straight out of play and being totally out jumped in the lead up to Jack Conan’s try summer up a tough afternoon.
