England slip to lowest World Rugby ranking in two years

Noah Ferguson | 12 June, 2018, 07:39

But while there is every chance that Brits may make his first appearance since the 2015 World Cup and add to his 10 test caps in a Springbok jersey, his knowledge of the English players will be of vital importance as the Boks want to sew up the test series with a victory this coming weekend.

For the first time in two years, England find themselves down to fourth in the rankings. So credit to all the young guys, who started making big calls, and now we can review everything and get better. Still, we only scraped through in the end and we made too many errors, so there is a lot for us to work on.

"He started at lock and then moved to flank at provincial level before consolidating as a prop to play 100 Tests". We're playing at altitude again, so the higher-paced this game is, the more space there will be'.

"Erasmus said he expected England to kick more, and they were a bit surprised when the visitors attacked the wide channels with relative ease". "Handre's shoulder is OK, he will train from today", Erasmus said. I think bringing a lot of negativity doesn't help the situation.

The character shown by a team full of inexperienced players and some tactical changes on the field were two of the main reasons Rassie Erasmus felt the Springboks managed to overturn a significant deficit to beat England by 42-39 in the opening Test of the Castle Lager Incoming Series at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg. We can only learn from him, especially in terms of scrums and lineouts and individual players. After this game there are only 16 matches left until the World Cup. "Hopefully, if they throw something else at us, the guys will handle it".

Recalled England-based halfback Faf de Klerk began the Boks' comeback with the first try. But that isn't a given, we will see how things pan out.

Hooker Schalk Brits has been added to the Springbok squad and joined up with the group in Bloemfontein on Monday.
