Thu, 15 Feb 2018 07:44

WATCH the footage of England’s scrummaging session with Georgia, which emerged following the run out between the two sides in London.

The training session, arranged by Eddie Jones, pitted the English pack against one of the top scrummaging units in world rugby, with Wayne Barnes acting as referee.

In the footage, the Georgian scrum appears to get the upper hand in the early exchanges, before conceding several penalties against
Speaking to BBC 5 Live, Jones described the session as "excellent" and "exactly what England needed."

"They won the early part and maybe we won the later part, so if it was a boxing match it would be a draw.

"The Georgians scrum in a quite unique way, and they are able to transfer pressure without moving their feet, so our front-rowers will have learned a lot today. It was a great learning experience for us."

England will be hoping to use the experience to their advantage as they go in search of a third consecutive Six Nations title with away games against Scotland and France, before a potential championship decider in Twickenham.
