England overpowered a weary Australia to end their disappointing autumn campaign on a high and ease the pressure on head coach Stuart Lancaster. Two tries from Ben Morgan and 16 points from the boot of George Ford were the reward for overwhelming scrum supremacy and a far more pragmatic display. After defeats early in the month by New Zealand and South Africa, this was a precious southern-hemisphere scalp for England with the World Cup just eight games away. Australia had more daring and dash with ball in hand, but it is now six defeats in seven Tests for the Wallabies and it will be England with the clear advantage when the two sides meet again in the group stages next year. With skipper Chris Robshaw having his best game of the series, Courtney Lawes and Brad Barritt outstanding in defence and Ford controlling territory with a solid kicking display, Lancaster's men were able to keep a spirited Australia fightback at bay and retain the Cook Cup.

England search for Flood replacement 23rd December 2013 11:16 Toby Flood's cross-channel switch next season means England must now decide on who to back up Owen Farrell going into the RWC 2015. Farrell, England's number one, has only missed the Six Nations match against Italy this year since being used as a replacement against South Africa in November 2012. Although criticism remains over his ability to open up England's attack, the Saracen is the clear frontrunner in the position due to lack of clear competition around him. Flood indeed was Farrell's main rival, along with being England's most experience player during the November Tests with his 60 caps. All but confirmed, Flood's move to France - most likely to Toulouse - will render him unavailable for selection from next season such is England's policy with overseas players. The decision to be made by England head coach Stuart Lancaster is whether to use Flood in next year's Six Nations or to start developing a secondary and tertiary fly-half option a ...
Rugby Union- England head coach Stuart Lancaster will turn to rugby league to help his players reach the same level as New Zealand and South Africa. Lancaster went on a fact-finding mission to Australia and New Zealand in August to visit leading league clubs. In particular, he thinks a lot can be copied to boost England's try-scoring. "We have a huge amount to learn from rugby league, particularly in terms of attacking and core skills," said Lancaster.
Unsung Barritt central to England's renaissance By Martyn Herman LONDON, Feb 12 (Reuters) - The likes of Owen Farrell, Chris Ashton and Manu Tuilagi are the headline grabbers but just as vital to England's renaissance under Stuart Lancaster has been the form of no-nonsense centre Brad Barritt. While Farrell kicked all the points in the 12-6 victory over Ireland on Sunday, South Africa-born Barritt was instrumental in nullifying danger-man Brian O'Driscoll as the former world champions won in Dublin for the first time in 10 years. Barritt's rising stock meant a fit-again Tuilagi had to make do... ~SportsMan
World Sports News England work off NZ win in Six Nations England coach Stuart Lancaster wants to use the team's record-breaking win over world champions New Zealand in December as a springboard to success in the forthcoming Six Nations Championship. Following narrow defeats by Australia and South Africa, England stunned the world of rugby with a blistering 38-21 victory over the All Blacks at Twickenham on December 1. The 17-point difference gave England their greatest winning margin against New Zealand but the manner of their victory was especially impressive. Having gone 15-0 up early in the second half, England saw New Zealand close to within a point after two tries in three second-half minutes. However, England themselves then responded with three tries of their own as Brad Barritt, Chris Ashton and Manu Tuilagi crossed New Zealand's line. Lancaster, though, warned on Monday the euphoria of beating the All Blacks would count for little if England, last season's runners-up, failed to maintain their for ...
Big match today England vs South Africa, need to win this to give us confidence and momentum for next week against The All Blacks and more importantly give Stuart Lancaster his 1st win over a top Southern Hemisphere team. COME ON ENGLAND!
Not since the 2006 November internationals have the Boks been pipped by the Red Rose, which is a record the English are desperate to quash. Only fly-half Toby Flood was involved in that 23-21 victory at this venue and he is one of just three England players to make their debut pre-2010. Experience is something that Stuart Lancaster is looking to instill in preparation for Rugby World Cup 2015 and it has to be said that when that tournament kicks-off, his squad will have both a healthy amount of wins and defeats to utilise in the memory bank, much like the group of 2003. South Africa meanwhile seem to be a little further down the road to satisfaction as, despite regular grumbles about the defensive gameplan, the tough Springboks are at least demonstrating the cutthroat edge that is needed to triumph in Test rugby. Their attack will improve given time. Heyneke Meyer's team selection this week shows trust in his players - as we witnessed in the recent Rugby Championship - and it's that faith in Springboks su ...

"I was sat last night at West Park in Leeds having finished with the under-11s and we were talking about the tour - not the South Africa tour, the Scarborough tour". Stuart Lancaster - if that's not a comment from a very grounded individual then I don't know what is. What a great appointment from the RFU. Hopefully he won't have to give up his under 11's role to do the England one alongside!
