True. “Silly penalties” are something of an “eye of the beholder” issue though. Was the penalty on their try line “silly” because it resulted in another scrum, or was it genius because it used up 90 seconds of sin bin and didn’t cost a score?
People rail against All Blacks sides of the last decade for getting away with it. The current England players need to learn how to play the very edge of the game, to come away without a penalty in a questionable area. That’s hard, and it’s bloody hard when you’re tackling three times as much as your opponents. I’m less concerned about penalties and more concerned about the kicking tactics.
