    OWEN'S ANALYSIS

    Owen Farrell has this to say on his sides performance:

    “Obviously tough conditions against a tough opposition, when the weathers like this it's an up front battle against Georgia, obviously a big challenge, but I thought our forwards especially stood up to it today.

    “Obviously we said that Georgia pride themselves on their set piece but so do we, and to do what we did in the first ten minutes in the amount of scrums we had and the amount of opportunities we got off the back of it was brilliant.”

    JAMIE'S JOY

    Speaking after the match man of the match Jamie George says:

    “Great team performance you know, it was brilliant.

    “We were fully aware of the threat that Georgia posed in terms of up front, how much pride they take in their set piece, how physical they were going to be there, so the most pleasing thing for me was forwards wise we stepped up to the plate.”

    On England's dominance up front:

    “It's something that we pride ourselves on, we spoke it before the game.

    “We're back here at Twickenham, obviously we're missing the crowd massively but at the same time we always take a huge amount of pride in our set piece, and constantly try and push it and it was great to be able to get it over the line.”
