It's one of the reasons why he's so key to what England are doing in attack: he can fix two defenders and then distribute like that.

By the way, does anyone else feel that Chris was taken out illegally in the build up to Wasps' second try? The hole in the defence comes because as he gets to his feet a Wasps player gets up on the wrong side of the ruck and pushes him to the side - you can see his arm go up. I thought it was dubious watching it live, but it looks even more blatant on replay.

Yes nearly as bad as Carly moving the pen back 1 metre, how much did Lang's kick miss by??🤬

He apparently moved it back by choice.

DC said on the pod we should have kicked for the corner and hinted heavily that Robshaw should have over ruled Langís shout that he could kick it.

Yes I heard the BBC pod. Carly definitely moved it, Lang tried to move it forward

Ugo was saying that they should have gone for the corner because Wasps couldnít afford to give another penalty away. Thatís assuming we didnít mess up the lineout which was quite probable. If Lang was confident of making the kick I would have taken that option as there is less to go wrong . If you were Exeter however..........
      Sink has lovely silky hands and is an excellent reader of the game. That just about balances out the rest of his foibles, but they are fixable.
