The Saracens, England and Lions second row Maro Itoje showed great leadership after England losing to Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday. The England lock has been overlooked for capacity despite Owen Farrell ruled out for the tournament and when you see leadership like this, you just can’t but wonder why he is being overlooked?
You can see the video below, but in the video he says the following;
“What matters is what’s in this circle fellas,”
“So how we react, how we stick together- how we react, how we stick together. We’ve been here before, we’ve lost the first game, we’ve bounced back and had a good tournament thereafter. So obviously we’re disappointed, obviously we’re sad that we lost, but this tournament depends on how we react. And how we react if we stick, we get tight, we’ll use this game to get tighter.”
