Now is the time to beat Boks
CAPE TOWN — England scrumhalf Ben Youngs says it's time for England to end a decade of despair against South Africa and earn their first win 12 Tests.
England have not beaten South Africa since 2006 and face the Springboks at Twickenham in both teams’ first Test of the November series.
They head into the game unbeaten in 10 matches and Youngs is eager to add to that winning tally.
“We feel our time is now to get rid of the last 10 years and get a win at the weekend,” Youngs told the England Rugby website.
Youngs also says the squad has been inspired by Ireland’s win against the All Blacks on Saturday — which ended an 111-year wait for victory against New Zealand.
“It just goes to show the gap (between southern and northern hemisphere) is not as big as people think it is. The weekend is going to come down to being physical . . . we’ve got to make sure that we are able to dominate in that area. boiled over towards the end of the La Liga encounter.
The 29-year-old felt Daniel Carrico ought to have received a second yellow card and was still annoyed that he was penalised for a foul on Adil Rami moments earlier, but he did not appear overly bothered by the decision after the game.
“The yellow card was actually a good thing,” Suarez told Canal Plus.
“I start with a clean slate again ahead of games away against Real Sociedad and versus Real Madrid.” — DailyMail
