The former England rugby coach and World Cup winner Clive Woodward was writing in The Daily Mail today and was very harsh on England’s number nine Ben Youngs. England lost to the Pumas at Twickenham on Sunday 30 points to 29 and the former coach believes Youngs was too slow at getting the ball out;

“At every ruck, Ben Youngs was taking too long to pass the ball away. Those fractions of a second all add up. No team will win a World Cup at that pace.
“I think there are four better English scrum-halves currently than Ben Youngs, with Jack van Poortvliet at the top of the list, but the more people praise him the less likely it seems that Eddie will pick him,”
SIR CLIVE WOODWARD: I watched England as a fan at Twickenham on Sunday and it was an AWFUL experience.

“The atmosphere felt artificial and contrived and, to top it off, England’s performance was so bad. Everyone was bored out of their brains.” Sir Clive Woodward on @EnglandRugby defeat
