3 Mis­match.

Rugby World - - THE ANALYST -

The de­coy move­ments and sur­prise el­e­ment have worked as Bar­ring­ton has been iso­lated and there’s an ini­tial 3 v 1 mis­match to get the drive on the front foot. Vin­cent Koch tries to race into Mulipola to sep­a­rate the front for­ma­tion but is beaten to it by Calum Green, who wins the race on the in­side to pro­tect his prop and keeps a tight bind with the front pod – es­sen­tial for this play. Ge­orge joins to try to help stop the mo­men­tum, along with Itoje. McGuigan and Welch are last to join in a su­perbly re­hearsed move.
