Steven Kitshoff is a 'big biltong-eating monster'

The 20-year-old flanker picked up the knock in the 12-11 win against the Springboks last Saturday and was forced off at start of the second half.

A much-needed win for the under-pressure Jones over the Springboks on Saturday ended in controversy, when Owen Farrell's injury-time tackle on André Esterhuizen was referred to the television match official by referee Angus Gardner.

And he's just a loosey (loose-forward) who plays for England'.

There was then four successive games with six tries scored - against Australia in Sydney and Auckland, against Argentina in Nelson, and against South Africa in Wellington, despite the latter seeing them on the wrong end of the scoreline.

The Saracens ace booted the ball through the middle of the posts from wide on the left with just seven minutes to go, handing England a crucial win ahead of next week's highly-anticipated clash with New Zealand.

World Rugby confirmed there were no citings from England's 12-11 victory over the Springboks at Twickenham, with Farrell's challenge on Andre Esterhuizen not meeting the red-card threshold. You know, we're a bloody good team, we've lost a few games, we played tough today and we won.

Asked if such moves are generally respected within the sport, Foster said: 'I don't know; I think everyone's going to have mixed opinions on that. "He had a 30-metre run up at me so it was tough, we both popped up off each other and it is hard to keep that under control".

Itoje looked fortunate to get away with what appeared to be a high tackle and England hit the front for the first time courtesy of a huge Daly penalty from close to the halfway line. "All the data shows that", Jones said.

Jones said the squad is using the knowledge of both the coaching staff and playing set-up to formulate a game plan to beat the world champions on home soil.
