- Coach says he will consider using trio again at World Cup
- ‘To have Owen, George and Marcus gives you options’
Steve Borthwick has said he considers England’s triple fly-half threat of Owen Farrell, Marcus Smith and George Ford as an option for future use in their World Cup campaign, saying that having them all on the pitch together “brought another dimension” in the thumping 11-try win over Chile.
Smith shone on his first start at full-back, scoring two tries, while Farrell slotted seamlessly back in at fly-half as England clinched their third straight win at the tournament. Ford came on for the final half an hour, in which he teed up Henry Arundell for one of his five tries, as England cut loose against the lowest ranked team in France.
