Matt Williams Blames Defeat To Scotland On English Arrogance

Matt Williams Blames Defeat To Scotland On English Arrogance
By Gary Connaughton

Very few expected Scotland to go to Twickenham and win last week, but certainly full deserved their victory over England.

The visitors completely outplayed Eddie Jones' side throughout the contest and their margin of victory should have been greater than what it was. It was a huge shock, with England the heavy favourites for the Six Nations in many people's eyes.

It will be interesting to see how England respond over the remainder of the tournament, but it is clear something is amiss in their camp at the minute.

Speaking on Virgin Media, Matt Williams said that their defeat Scotland came down to English arrogance.

English teams at all sports, when they think they're unbeatable, fail. The press then turn on them...

The Saracens boys were not fit, they were overweight. I'm not trying to be rude, but they're not ready for international rugby.

This is the arrogance they sometimes bring, 'we can get dropped to second division and we'll still make The Lions'. They can't do it, they got caught out.

They've made a number of changes. They're brought Jamie George back to the bench and they've probably told Vunipola 'get out there playing and we'll get you fit by playing', but the players have to play.

To be fair, such things have been a regular occurrence with English teams in the past.
