    Thanks for these responses. Having watched it again I can see that there was no ruck. Glad I am fairly anonymous on here, but what is TWOL stand for?

    tackle with offside lines. Like a ruck, but a few differences. It came into existence because England didn't like this:

    I guess you’re right. It’s not that the England players didn’t like it, it’s that they were incapable of adapting to the tactic that’s far more worrying for Eddie Jones.

    As previously discussed, on RRF, Italy’s mistake was to tear the arse out of the tactic, had they mixed it up a little, the victory was their’s for the taking.

    That photo still makes me laugh, Romain Poîte telling England’s captain, «*I’m the referee not a coach.*». Worthy of Nigel Owens that réplique.
