It's hard to beat anyone when you miss 46 tackles! Farrell missed 11, the backs 23 combined v AB backs' 4.

Interesting bit in the I Paper about the match; sort of criticizes Farrell for electing to kick to the corner on a couple of occasions when points were on offer but then goes on a long tirade about the fact that Sinckler lost the ball that he was the real culprit. Then talks about the way that Sinckler was pumped up and needs to control himself. No Brown or Robshaw in the side so this clearly brings Sinckler into the firing line.

I thought that sink had a good game. The only fault was that he should have been subbed about 5 minutes earlier as I think he had emptied the tanks during the first half and was having less impact

Yeah wonder how they ended up choosing Sink to have a go at? Lazy idiots.

Most reasonable writers said he had his best game in an England shirt.

The Sink was superb, other than the "dropped" ball from a poor pass that he never actually gathered I thought he was one of the better players for England, did a lot of carrying and tackling.

Sinck had a great game. One unfortunate knock on, and towards the end seemed to be getting a bit too angry so good time for him to go.
