Incredible Stat That Shows Eddie Jones Got His Selection Bang On Against New Zealand


England are through to yet another Rugby World Cup final thanks to a dominant performance against the All Blacks this morning – with this incredible stat proving Eddie Jones got his selection absolutely bang on.

The decision to move Owen Farrell back to 12 with George Ford at 10 was met with a lot of criticism this week, with most people surprised the England boss made any changes after such a convincing win against Australia last week.

Ford has always had hit critics with many believing Farrell is wasted at 12, given the fact that he’s rated as one of the best out-halves in the world. But the pair were incredible today and amazingly finished the game as England’s two top tacklers.

Both made 15 tackles each with a combined 94% success rate. A masterstroke from Jones.
