Francis did well last week so it will be good to see more of him. It will be good to see how Underhill steps up too. Looking forward to this!

Another impressive win. The experience of Launchbury, Robshaw, Care, Ford, Hartley and Brown was to the fore, and a number of the less experienced players acquitted themselves well and gained valuable development and experience.

A very successful tour, well done Eddie on selections and winning mentality
