All Blacks Attend England Vs South Africa Game Unbeknownst To RFU

England however are well stocked with back row options for the remaining games against New Zealand, Japan and Australia.

The All Blacks were in attendance at Twickenham on Saturday for England's win over South Africa - completely unbeknownst to both Eddie Jones and the Rugby Football Union (RFU).

South Africa's management were furious at Gardner's failure to act, their coach Rassie Erasmus praising the tackle in an answer laced with sarcasm, but Farrell himself insists there is no case to answer.

"We've got Courtney training fully and in that back five of the scrum, you saw Charlie Ewels come on at six at the weekend, so we've got a lot of good quality players back there".

"I think everyone's been looking forward to the game".

"(The) Most important thing is what we do next", the Australian said.

He said: "We know they're going to have an ideal preparation for the game; they'll be up for the game".


Former Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll said the referee got the decision "spot on" while former Australia lock Justin Harrison said "just because you don't wrap doesn't mean it a shoulder charge, when laws of physics mean it's a bounce effect".

The entry emphatically ends with: "In South Africa, he is known as a p**s". "We didn't give", Jones added.

Asked if such moves are generally respected within the sport, Foster said: 'I don't know; I think everyone's going to have mixed opinions on that.

"(And) you've got to understand their weaknesses".

Curry limped off in the second half of Saturday's 12-11 victory at Twickenham and after having the joint scanned, it was confirmed he is facing an extended spell on the sidelines. They want the game to be an athletic contest.

Shields was born in Masterton to English parents and played for Hurricanes before moving to Wasps and tasting Test rugby with England.
