The new video from ‘Die Hard Rugby’ titled ‘England Rugby Brutal Rugby World Cup Performance 2019 | Big Hits, Bump Offs and Trys’ goes chronologically through each of England’s matches at the Japan World Cup in a brutal montage.

We forgot just how good they were in 2019.

Everyone remembers how dominant Eddie Jones men were in the knockout stages of the tournament against the Wallabies, Kiwis and of course, the Springboks – but it’s their savage performances in the group stages that this video really shows well.

If anyone was in any doubt about who the best team on the planet was a year ago – this video clearly shows it was the men in white.

Just 3 players who started against Saracens are in Racing’s Top 14 team on Saturday after last week’s virus outbreak

Racing will start just three players against Toulouse in the Top 14 on Saturday night who were in the XV that dethroned defending champions Saracens in the Champions Cup semi-finals a fortnight ago in Paris.

The Parisian club’s Top 14 match at La Rochelle was postponed last weekend due to nine unnamed players testing positive for Covid-19 in the days after their last-four European game.

However, it’s believed the outbreak has been stifled and there is no threat to Racing’s participation in next Saturday’s Champions Cup final versus Exeter in Bristol. 

The Racing squad has entered a bubble in a Parisian hotel and will fly to England on a charter flight from a small airport rather than Charles de Gaulle to minimise their contact with the public at large.         

For the Top 14 game against Toulouse, Teddy ThomasOlivier Klemenczak and Donnacha Ryan are the three repeat Racing starters from the win over Saracens.  

Teddy Baubigny, Boris PaluMaxime MachenaudAntoine Gibert and Francois-Trinh Duc, who were replacements against the London club, are all promoted to the starting XV. 

Two further European starters, Camille Chat and Dominic Bird, are chosen on the bench where they are joined by Hassane Kolingar and Fabien Sanconnie, two subs from the semi-final. 

It means that twelve of the 23 that faces Saracens are on league duty, with the likes of Finn RussellVirimi Vakatawa and Simon Zebo all wrapped up ahead of next week’s European decider. 

So cautious are Racing about their preparations that players not in the matchday 23 to face Toulouse will not even attend the match and will instead watch from the team hotel.  

With France on red alert due to increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases, the number of fans allowed attend is also restricted to 1,000.
