Are England too boring? 40-point demolition of Georgia ends with familiar questions being asked

“It was a big pat on the back for our forward pack but we probably didn’t put our stamp on the game with regards to our attack, but conditions didn’t really allow us to do so,” said hat-trick hero George.

“It was always going to be a tough one for us but at the same time, to keep a team like Georgia down to nil and put in the professional-like performance that we did, was really pleasing.

“I think we are going to move on pretty quickly to Ireland and make sure our focus is on that as they have been pretty impressive since the restart.”

There is evidently a desire to play ‘better’ rugby, but then the fourth try scored on Saturday was none too shabby when Henry Slade’s disguised pass released Jonathan Joseph through the defence to put Elliot Daly in, a try of true quality that saw the ball moved 40 metres without Georgia getting a sniff of it.

To go back to the question of ‘are England too boring?’, it very much depends on who you ask. But the fact that it is being asked is normally a good sign that things are going pretty well results-wise to allow critics to progress to judging on style alone. If England remain ‘boring’ for the next three years, Jones will not care on bit.
