Want to know the latest surrounding this weekend’s Autumn Internationals drama? Read on to find out more…
Scotland, England and Wales all saw the end of their autumn Tests this weekend with:
Scotland seeing off Australia 53-24.
England defeating Samoa 48-14, bagging 3 wins in 3 during November.
Wales lost to the All Blacks, making this their 30th consecutive defeat – the match ended 33-18.
Finally, Ireland secured a victory against Argentina, giving them an 100% record.
New heights for Scottish rugby
Gregor Townsend’s coaching is clearly paying off and Scotland are looking like serious competitors for the Six Nations. They managed to end their autumn internationals series in style, defeating the Wallabies 53-24. Scotland got off to a slightly clumsy start, displaying some attacking blunders but quickly found their feet when Finn Russell scored the opening try.
Wales need to learn how to wrap things up
It seems that no matter how hard Wales pushed they could not deliver the right moves at the right time. Their match against the All Blacks left much to be desired, as they failed to convert a good amount of possession and territory into tangible tries. Conclusion: unfortunately they just didn’t have the calibre of players to match that of the All Blacks – a common problem for all teams!
It was anticipated that England would defeat Samoa, who were on a roll of losses and dropped down to 16th in world rankings. England lacked the clinical precision that was prevalent in previous matches during the series. Eddie Jones will have been pleased to see Mike Brown’s position in the side finally justified after some blips in recent matches. He was back on form in position of full-back.
