#1 ip drought, going all the way back to when the Cubs beat the Tigers in the von dasg234 05.06.2019 13:22

Chris Robshaw is relieved to have finally completed his collection of Rugby Championship triumphs after England crushed South Africa 37-21 at Twickenham.A decade of failure against the Springboks spanning 12 Tests, one of them ending in a draw, concluded with a four-try rout on Saturday that was settled the moment George Ford dashed over early in the second half.Robshaw has been involved in four of those losses, all of them as captain, but was typically industrious as England extended their winning run to 11 games, with 10 of them delivered under the guidance of Eddie Jones.Its massive because Ive played a number of times against South Africa and its been a fixture in which you feel youre quite close, but youre not actually, Robshaw said. For us to get over that and get a comfortable scoreline is a great feeling. To see our hard work pay off is great for the squad.We left some points out there and were a little bit disappointed to have conceded that last try, but as this series continues well get more fluid and show a bit of consistency.We always want to improve on last season and when we first met up in the summer, we were very clear that yes it had been very good and we achieved what we wanted to, but its been about kicking on.Youre only judged on your next result, so its been about making sure that every time you go out there you produce as well as you can and keep things ticking over.The victory was given perspective by the limitations of South Africa, who brought their poorest group of players to Twickenham since the 53-3 drubbing in 2002 and at times in the second half they were a rabble in defence.But they started strongly, aided by English indiscipline, until a flawlessly-executed move from a line-out that saw Elliot Daly and Owen Farrell act as decoy runners before Marland Yarde and Mike Brown combined to send Jonny May over signalled the beginning of their demise.It was Mays first international appearance since last autumns World Cup and after a 10-month absence with knee ligament damage, the try-scoring return conclusively ended an anxious period in the Gloucester wings career.It was awesome to be back because Ive worked so hard over God knows how many months. I always targeted these games so I made it just in the nick of time, May said. All my hard work paid off and I managed to score a try in the corner. For sure there were times when I felt this moment would never come again.With a nasty injury like that, when its potentially career-ending, you know you have to work extremely hard to get back, but thats all behind me. The last two weeks have been really tough. The way we train has been brutal, so I probably ran out of puff a little bit in the second half. I came off early so Ive got to keep working hard to move onwards and upwards.Adidas Superstar Cheapest Price . And when it opened, every player was at his stall.
