By Rugby Wrap Up

The World Tens Series has concluded, but the smoke is only now clearing after a barn-burner of a tournament ended with a sizzling finale.

The SX10s side are deserved champions, but they were tested until the final seconds by that never-say-die from America’s heartland, the Ohio Aviators.

After their heroic efforts in a guy-wrenching loss, USA Rugby teammates Dylan ‘The Butcher’ Fawsitt (Rugby United NY) and Bryce Campbell (Austin Gilgronis) took a minute to speak with our Matt McCarthy, live from pitch.

Mick Cleary: 'England fans are entitled to be grumpy and weary'

“no stand-out talent that would trouble the selectors of a world XV. Until that status changes, then they will be confined to this mid-table (at best) mediocrity.” I really think this is nonsense analysis. Finn Russell isn’t better than George Ford. Jamie George is the third best hooker in the world after Marx and Sheehan. Ben Earl would probably start for any team in the world bar Ireland, and the same goes for Ollie Lawrence when he’s in form. The problem England have is (1) people hate their style of play, so will always overlook players like Ford and George when comparing them with more flashy alternatives; (2) that people expect England to be one of the best teams in the world, so when they fall short it is held against them. Finn Russell has far more poor games than George Ford, but because Scotland aren’t expected to be consistently winning trophies it isn’t a scandal when he does play badly. Conversely if Ben Earl was playing for scotland, or wales, or italy, everyone would be blown away by his performances, but because he’s only playing slightly better than we expect english back row players to play then he’s not given the plaudits he arguably deserves. I say “arguably” because ultimately I don’t think it matters whether we value individual players accurately or not. I’m not aggrieved that english players don’t get selected in world XVs, I just don’t think its a good explanation of a nation’s performances!
