I'm a proud England supporter and I always will be but contained in this article is the number one problem with the way the game is coached and played in this country.
"His big focus is staying on your feet. You take the ball into contact and use multi-phases, but his big philosophy is staying on your feet and looking to play.

In England staying on your feet, keeping the ball alive and playing through multiiple phases is viewed as an exciting and different philosophy.
The amount of time spent in junior rugby training on repetitive drills based on what to do after the ball goes to ground drives me insane. If we spent just 50% of that time coaching players to stay on their feet then we might start producing players capeable of playing dynamic multi-phase attacking rugby.
