Sir Clive Woodward has revealed the changes Eddie Jones should make heading into England’s series decider against Australia next weekend.
“England’s success was built on the pack, which was superb. In the first half the performance produced by the forwards was 10 out of 10. It was really impressive,” wrote the World Cup -winner.
“The third Test could be spectacular now. England have taken a lot of criticism for some of their recent performances, but as much as I’ve been one of those voices, you also have to give credit to the team when they deliver.
“I’d go with as close to the same team as the one which started the second Test for the series decider, but injuries mean there will have to be changes.”
#1. Lewis Ludlam for Maro Itoje
Woodward wrote: “As I’ve said repeatedly, Lawes should be at lock and not six so with Itoje out, I’d move him back to the second row. That would mean Lewis Ludlam could slot in on the flank.
“I’m not sure that will happen as it looks like Jones is wedded to the Lawes at six theory.”
