Great performance from england today particularly Flood and Geraghty. Both showed some real confidence when they played and has given Ashton a real selection headache. Geraghty made a huge impact when he came on and Flood never did a thing wrong. Both looked so composed under the pressure of the Twickenham crowds and played superbly.
Also Catty did the job after a nervy start and played that heads up rugby Ashton has been wanting England to play for some time picking out the front row in defense and taking them on.
The pack today was brilliant. Even after going backward about thirty yards they kept recycling the ball. Corry looked alot more comfortable in lock and the back row finally had the dynamism that we've been lacking. Rees was very good and Nick Easter constantly gave England go forward ball. I doubt there will be much changes in the pack for Wales.
Only real concern was giving away a few penalties.
The young guns shined today Strettle looking a constant threat, Rees man of the match, and of course Flood and Geraghty both showing that they can make the jump from club to international.
Im not saying that England were perfect today, i dont think France played as well as they could but it is a good start for England and now we can look to the future with much hope. Well done.
