English scrum has looked uncharacteristically weak for a while now, they will come under serious pressure later in the tournament.

I think ultimately they took their opportunities well and did what they needed to, less nervy than the tournament opener could have been.

Imho they need to drop Ford for the Australia and Wales games. What he brings in his attacking game is nullified by the sides weakness in defence and lack of control over some of the basics of the game. Farrell is much better at this, same as Wilkinson used to be. If they're going to win this they will need to be same old boring England for long parts of games and strangle the opposition.
