After training, the England head coach noted that training session with Georgia Rugby team was a valuable learning lesson for his team.

"Georgia were just the sort of scrum we needed to scrum against - strong, scrummaged in a different way and the boys learnt a number of different things today. They had the superiority early on and we came back well. It was an excellent session for us. They really enjoyed it. It was fantastic, brilliant,” he said.

According to the England head coach, Georgian rugby players found different ways to exert pressure

“Georgia just use their head and shoulders in different ways,” Jones said. “There are different ways of exerting pressure in scrums - some of its old fashioned, some new fashioned. They do different things. They scrum for a living and our guys have learnt a number of different things.”

According to the England head coach, Georgian rugby players found different ways to exert pressure and they did it with the new laws. It means finding new ways of exerting pressure without moving their feet.

“Georgia are very good at that - exceptional. They do it better than most and we are all trying to chase how to put pressure in without making the scrum unstable, but Georgia are better than anyone at doing that” – Jones explained after the first training session with Georgia.
