6:43 pm
twickenham is nearly as tough as picking the team. ayman‘s cast of players is currently changing, retired, dropped, injured. less than half of this squad finished the six nations with england. just a year to go to the rugby world cup is not the ideal time to experiment. but experiment they must. so onto twickenham's testing ground came not one but two captains owen ferrell and dylan hartley. as well as being co—skipper he is their kicker. england spent much of the half defending their doormat eventually south africa would find a way through. he spotted it. despite that england went into the break only two points down but the team talk cannot wait for the dressing room, something had to change. momentum came from his book. this could carried 60 metres and carried him and into the lead. south africa snatched it back. again england needed a response. brad shield who

6:45 pm
they can crack that then they will feel they are really onto something. still want him to come today over in chicago. ireland play italy and had a good record in chicago and they're expected to beat italy. ireland the six nations grand slam champions many people feel have the chance of really challenging for the webb ellis trophy in just under a year positive time. patrick garrett live for at twickenham. thanks for that. what a fascinating series it will be for all involved. in the proi4, ulster survived a late benetton onslaught to snatch a 15—10 victory. second half tries by sean reidy and rob herring werejust enough for them to claim their second away win of the season. benetton left to count the cost of their failure to convert their chances. as ultster moved into second place right plenty still to come on sportsday including the young rider carrying british hopes in a new sport for tokyo 2020 — freestyle bmx. and with more people turning to racing on simulators,
