Lancaster defends subs policy 03 February 2014, 19:52 England coach Stuart Lancaster hit back at criticism of his substitute policy after Clive Woodward said it had caused the team's 26-24 defeat by France in their Six Nations opener in Paris on Saturday. Woodward, England's World Cup-winning boss in 2003, used his column in Monday's Daily Mail to attack Lancaster's use of replacements in the final quarter, particularly the departure of scrum-half Danny Care. "The substitutions coast England the game and that responsibility falls on the management not the players," Woodward wrote. "There were fundamental coaching errors, the players did not deserve it and it is time to wise up," the former England and British and Irish Lions centre added. But Lancaster insisted Monday the defeat was down to a wretched start that saw England fall 16-3 behind following two tries by France's Yoann Huget. "I don't think the replacements were the reason we lost the game. I was certainly pleased with the impact all the substitu ...
2014 Six Nations: England fired up to face France, says Tom Wood • 'We may have to weather early storm but will bring own fire' • 'Game will be won in last 10-15 minutes,' says Mike Catt France are the Six Nations side to beat, so we are always told, in the season after a British and Irish Lions tour. If it happens again this year it will be the fifth time in a row but England have not travelled across the Channel in the mood to satisfy neat Gallic symmetry. "We may have to weather a storm early on but we intend to bring our own fire," said Tom Wood, always ready to assume the role of Churchillian orator in big weeks like this one. His words further stoked the belief on both sides that a massive confrontation awaits. The English headline plastered across the front of Midi Olympique – "Yes, We Can" – also underlined the intense local desire for France to forget their wooden spoon travails of last season. If it were simply about which side can least afford to lose this opening fixture, Les Bleus wou ...
England! Battered and humiliated after their thumping in the Millennium Stadium against Wales at the close of the Six Nations, England have turned their 2013 around since March with a run of four wins and a single loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham. Three of those four wins came against Argentina - two in South America and one back in south-west London - as Stuart Lancaster's mission to build greater depth to his squad ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup continued. Shorn of a total of 12 players to the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia by the time Brad Barritt, Billy Twelvetrees and Christian Wade had been flown out (and not including Dylan Hartley's suspension), Lancaster was able to let the likes of Marland Yarde, Kyle Eastmond, Billy Vunipola and more get a taste of Test rugby against the Pumas in their own backyard. Winning the a Test series in Argentina for the first time in 32 years is not an accomplishment to be sniffed at. The tour was also a chance for Lancaster to let the likes of Chris ...
UNION- World Cup winner Lewis Moody does not believe that picking Lee Dickson to play scrum half for England against Australia is the correct choice. Dickson, who started both of England's test wins over Argentina in June, retains the number nine jersey on Saturday after a scintillating start to the season for Northampton, forcing British and Irish Lions scrumhalf Ben Youngs on to the bench. Moody says: "No, I don't. I think Ben Youngs has the ability to cause chaos in defences and individual defenders. He runs hard at the line, he is quick, he is elusive. Dickson is a very good grafter, he is an intelligent rugby player, he brings a great attitude that Stuart Lancaster obviously likes, but for me Ben is slightly more dangerous as a ball player."
Lancaster 3/1 to lead Lions next. Stuart Lancaster is the early favourite at 3/1 with Ladbrokes to be in charge of the Lions for their next tour, in New Zealand, in 2017. The British and Irish Lions sealed a memorable series victory over Australia with a 41-16 triumph against the Wallabies in Sydney and in four years time they will bid for another success against southern hemisphere opposition, in the shape of the All Blacks. The England coach is 3/1 to lead the tourists in that one while Warren Gatland is a 6/1 chance at Ladbrokes to still hold the post and Rob Howley is 4/1. However, a win for the Lions in 2017 is considered unlikely, Ladbrokes pricing the hosts as 2/7 favourites and making the Lions 5/2 outsiders. Elsewhere, Ladbrokes post 1/5 against the Lions being named ‘team of the year’ at the Sports Personality of the Year Awards and they also go 6/1 about Alun Wyn-Jones captaining the side in New Zealand. Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told Betrescue: “When it mattered most the Lions delivere ...

Lancaster reassured by Gatland - Stuart Lancaster is sure the British and Irish Lions will pick England players on merit after talks with coach Warren Gatland.
England assured over Lions selection 17:45, Feb 14 2013 England coach Stuart Lancaster has received reassurances from Warren Gatland that selection for the British and Irish Lions tour will be based on merit alone. Gatland had said in an interview with the Evening Standard that taking a lot of English players on the tour of Australia could lead to a media circus and... ~SportsMan
British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland says he will field an entire side of English players in the first Test against Australia if it is the best team he has available. The New Zealand-born coach yesterday claimed a large number of English players in the 37-strong Lionssquad would generate extra pressure on the touring party and attract negative attention. However, the 49-year old today tried to distance himself from the statements made to the Evening Standard, which referenced England's doomed Rugby World Cup campaign in New Zealand which wasdogged by off-field controversy. Gatland told the Daily Telegraph: "I am extremely disappointed that anybody should try to misinterpret what I said and try to say that will count against English players, that's absolute b*. "The last thing I would ever do is limit the number of English players. There is absolutely no limit to the number of any players from any nation we will pick if they are worthy of a place on the tour. "I would happily pick 15 English player ...
