England end 10-year drought against 'Boks

England swept aside its bogey team of the past decade by beating South Africa 37-21 at soggy Twickenham on Saturday, extending its 100 percent record under coach Eddie Jones to 10 games.

Youngs was outstanding as he inspired England to a convincing win over South Africa on Saturday to make it 10 straight wins since Jones took charge.

It was a slick response from England given the damp conditions, but for the second time in the opening quarter they allowed South Africa to surge through the middle of the ruck with Vincent Koch rampaging in the footsteps of Tendai Mtawarira before him.

The 2003 world champions have not tasted defeat since losing to Australia in last year's World Cup on home soil, and they have won all 10 matches since Eddie Jones succeeded Stuart Lancaster as coach.

"We are pleased with the result having not beaten South Africa for so long".

"We've got 10 of the squad that went to Australia not here so we've had to put together a new team, get people to understand how we want to play and we always thought the first 20 minutes was going to be the most hard".

"But it was our first game (of the new global season)".

"I was privileged to play a lot of games of rugby but, and I said this to the groups I captained at the end of my career, I don't actually remember an very bad lot of them", former England captain Borthwick said.


"But we regained our composure, control".

Another Farrell penalty brought the 30 points up after 50 minutes and though South Africa scored in a rare attack through Johan Goosen there was no feeling that a comeback was on the cards.

Ben Youngs had one of his best games for England, the scrum-half twice selling dummies with sniping breaks to create tries for half-back partner Ford and Farrell.

"We'll take this today but there's plenty to work on for next week, discipline being the key area, but it's the start of our series and we're very happy to get that monkey off our back, obviously 10 years". This match will involve a lot of tactical moves from the coach as well and England would like to beat his South African counterpart Allister Coetzee in order to clinch victory in this autumn worldwide.

"In the crucial moment of the game, where we sort of make the mistakes, and it gets taken away from us". Elliot Daly, whose visionary left-footed kicking was always likely to add to England's options, chipped a testing one behind the Springbok defence. Jonny May, Courtney Lawes, George Ford and Owen Farrell all crossed for tries, with Farrell kicking 17 points.

"It was a matter of being patient, and they pounced on our mistakes".

Three uncapped players - prop Kyle Sinckler, back-row forward Nathan Hughes and center Ben Te'o - were on the bench as England looks for its first win over South Africa since 2006.

Hartley insists England are not paying any attention to the long run without a win against the Springboks.
