Australia v England: Preview and Analysis courtesy of G&GR

Our Aussie friends at Green and Gold Rugby have spent some time analysing the two sides that will meet in Perth on Saturday, and the video makes interesting viewing.

The analysis of the English gameplan comes from the early minutes against France in the Six Nations, so it might be slightly misleading if the opposition are looking for clues as to how we will play.

My favourite quote from Matt’s analysis, “Every now and then the Poms remember that quick ball is indefensible.” Unfortunately, it’s exceptionally rare, but if the Aussies are fanning out frantically in case we spin it wide, perhaps there will be gaps opening at close quarters when we revert to the ‘pop to static forward’ strategy.

Here’s the video, well worth a watch.
