Eddie Jones backs Owen Farrell to avoid citing

Springboks fans are some of the most passionate in the world

Owen Farrell's contentious tackle still has tongues wagging in the rugby world and one former top referee believes South Africa should have been awarded a potentially match-winning penalty in the Twickenham test on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

But they now head into a clash against the All Blacks at Twickenham on November 10 buoyed by two successive wins.

"Most important thing is what we do next", the Australian said.

Jones, however, was in chippy mood when asked if Saturday's success had been the most important win of his near three-years in charge of England. We're a bloody good team.

"I just think the game is getting more intense".

He said: "We know they're going to have an ideal preparation for the game; they'll be up for the game". Because you guys (the media) want to sack me, is that why? If I stay long enough, you're going to get me sacked, so you'll be happy.

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.

Erasmus proved that he is a man of his word as video footage from Springbok training shows the former Munster coach teaching one of his players the same technique that Owen Farrell used against Esterhuizen.

"When you get in those arm wrestles, someone's got to give".

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.

"I reckon we just need consistency, I think it's pretty inconsistent at times", he said.

Shields represented New Zealand at Under-20s level but is now an integral part of head coach Jones' England set-up.

Shields was born in Masterton to English parents and played for Hurricanes before moving to Wasps and tasting Test rugby with England.
