Ben Youngs has received a great deal of criticism for his behaviour following England’s defeat today.
The scrum-half conducted a short interview before storming off.
“Shame to see that,” said Will Greenwood in the Sky Sports studio.

Poor form from Ben Youngs but that attitude comes from the top, Eddie Jones is exactly the same and it filters down. Poor leadership instilling negativity in the ranks.

That Ben Youngs interview was worse to watch than the match! Very disappointing #RSAvENG

Wow. Ben Youngs. Pretty much typifies what Eddie Jones is all about. Boorish, rude, arrogant and belligerent. Stuart Lancaster currently laughing as he caresses his European Champions Cup trophy… and rightly so. #SAvsENG

Ben Youngs interview not ideal. Disappointed no doubt but not really seen that before.
Great 2-0 series win for South Africa anyway, after beating England 23-12 in Bloemfontein 🇿🇦

As someone who shoves a microphone in players' faces after full-time whistles for a living…as much as that was uncharacteristically poor form from Ben Youngs, it was nonetheless as insightful a post-match interview as you can get. #RSAvENG

Such poor discipline and no decision making. Ben Youngs was embarrassing in the TV interview. The back 3 looked useful, Brown tasty on the wing, but their pals in the front 12 let them down and Itoje in particular needs to grow up. #RSAvENG
