Lancaster pleased by progress

Coach Stuart Lancaster insists he is pleased with England’s progress during their tour of South Africa, despite Saturday’s 14-14 draw with the Springboks meaning they departed without a Test win. “It’s been a fantastic opportunity to take a wider group of players and work with them,” said Lancaster. “We have now got a team of young players and experienced players coming through together and the culture is strong. I think it augurs well for the future.”
