England rugby reveal which Six Nations games Itoje will miss

England rugby reveal which Six Nations games Itoje will miss

"I hope he's back as soon as possible but there will be other players who can step up to the plate".

Leading 32-13 with barely a minute to go, England were on course to leapfrog 2018's World Rugby Team of the Year but Cooney's consolation effort reduced the margin between the teams sufficiently for Ireland to hold onto their status as New Zealand's nearest rivals in the rankings.

Going into this year's Six Nations Scotland coach Gregor Townsend boldly claimed that his side meant to win the tournament for the first time since 1999 but a comfortable 33-20 win over Italy does little to suggest what they are capable of in the weeks to come. "They fairly deserved their win". "England are a big team and they bettered us physically". Eddie Jones's side was more aggressive from start to finish, and Ireland had no answers. We were a bit off, probably physically, we didn't front up enough and lost the collisions.

"I should definitely have just tucked if I had taken a look up". I've full confidence in this group, I genuinely do. As a playing group we've got to be honest with ourselves and drive that as a team.

"We'll have a hard look at ourselves".

Murray is excited at the prospect of Scotland next week and the chance to fix the wrongs of last night and make them right.

"There are a lot of guys hurting at the moment and they will be looking for a way back in and I think the only was back in is to roll our sleeves up, show that resilience mentally that we are going to be have to be able demonstrate next Saturday". This group has been through good days and bad days and we've bounced back well and we're going to have to really fight this week and dust ourselves down. "When you have the likes of Manu in midfield you just want to get the ball into his hands and skip out the middle man", explained George. "Scotland are a quality side and we'll dust ourselves off, learn from it and head into next week ready to go".

However, if you think the Scots have what it takes to win the Six Nations outright for the first time in 20 years they can be backed at [16.5] on the Exchange.
