“Ragged and disjointed” – Sir Clive Woodward slams abject England performance

#5. Jamie Blamire

Telegraph 5/10: “Another forward to drop a short pass, he conceded a soft penalty for failing to roll away and overthrew a close-range line-out. Did not take his opportunity.”

Planet Rugby 5/10: “His performance looked much better when Theo Dan came on, in that the lineout at least was comparatively smooth with Blamire on the field.”

Rugby Pass 5/10: “Another of the fringe who needed to post a sharp reminder about his credentials, he had first-half difficulties such as getting stuck at a penalty conceding ruck, missing a tackle on the breaking Rees-Zammit and then missing his target at the lineout near the Welsh line at six-all. It wasn’t all bad for the hooker but he exited on 54.”
