Jamie George demands England honesty after South Africa defeat

Jamie George demands England honesty after South Africa defeat”

Eddie Jones' side looked good for the first 20 minutes and the last 10, but lost its way badly in the middle.

Eddie Jones' men are aiming to create history as the first England side to win a series in the Rainbow Nation, a tough prospect when taking into account their recent record against the Springboks: one victory in their last 13 meets.

"Owen Farrell has settled in well to his new role, with the senior players supporting him, and there is a good feeling within the camp".

England's record in South Africa isn't great.

The All Blacks scored 44 unanswered points in the second half in Auckland to start their worldwide season with a bang. It could have gone bad really for us.

"We knew that wasn't what we worked on during the week".

"We all took charge and told the guys to calm down".

Kolisi, who captained the Boks for the first time, said: "I was very nervous as we didn't expect to have such a tough time early in the game, but we have guys who had been in situations like that before. The new caps didn't panic".

"We just want to put things right. I was worried‚" said Erasmus.

"There were a lot of individual errors that led to the ill-discipline, so first up we've got to be honest with ourselves, brutally honest at times, and hopefully that will lead to coaches not having to say too much". And Ellis Park - setting for Saturday's Test - is a venue England haven't won at in 46 years.

"Our replacements all went to the U.S. last week and I expected them to run out of steam a bit after some time, but all of them made a big impact".

"They could have put us away‚" Erasmus acknowledged.
