Owen Farrell has been Englands standard-bearer and is the spirit of the team that has won 14 matches on the bounce, according to Eddie Jones.As Jones reflected on Englands 37-21 win over Australia and a year which has seen his side win all 13 of their matches, he singled out Farrell as the player pushing the standards in the squad. He hailed Ben Youngs and outstanding Courtney Lawes as the players who have impressed him most from the autumn Tests, but it is Farrell who has emerged as their key player.Owen Farrell is the spirit of the team, Jones said. Hes an absolute competitor and always wants to do things well.He hasnt been at his best this autumn -- its quite clear hes still recovering from his back injury, Id say hes probably been at 80 per cent of his total fitness.To win those four Test when your inside centre is nowhere near his best is a pretty good effort. Hes enormous for us. Hes the standard-bearer.Jones knows him well having handed the then 16-year-old Farrell his debut during his time in charge of Saracens. The England coach remembers being impressed by the way Farrell dealt with big hit from Sonny Bill Williams in a trial match between Saracens and Toulon.Sonny Bill Williams was making his debut for Toulon, Jones continued. Owen got the ball and Sonny Bill Williams whacked him and stood over the top of him. He just bounced up on his feet and continued on like nothing had happened. You could tell he was going to be a good player.Farrell started all four of Englands end-of-year Tests with his goal-kicking, communication and work-rate integral to their unbeaten year. The 9-10-12 axis with Ben Youngs, George Ford and Farrell is continuing to develop and winger Marland Yarde also impressed Jones in their win over Australia.I remember going to a Quins game about eight months ago, sitting in the crowd and the Quins supporters were going: Hes crap. This guys hopeless. I dont know why they play him all the time, Jones said. And hes really worked hard at his game and had a storming game today, really good game.Jones singled out their win over Argentina - a match they won despite being down to 14 men for 75 minutes - as their performance of the autumn Tests and said they went through a growth spurt in that game. On-field leadership has been a constant theme running through the series with Jones impressed by how they rectified their dreadful start against Australia to get a foothold and then push on in the second-half to win convincingly.Central to that was Dylan Hartley but even he is not guaranteed a place in Jones England side as he says no one, not even Farrell, can take their spot for granted.Dylans been absolutely outstanding, Jones said. Physically hes not at his best for this series, hes probably 80-90 per cent mark.He needs to rectify that for the 6Nations. But his leadership has been enormous. Hes one of these guys who give added value.He leads from the front, hes proactive. If he senses things are wrong, he fixes them. He has really driven this side. The credit he deserves is enormous.Jones gave individual feedback to the players on Sunday and will meet the coaches on Monday as attention shifts to the Six Nations where England will be chasing back-to-back grand slams. He says the championship will be an altogether different challenge to the end-of-year Tests and is expecting the players to come into camp fatigued.But he has already prioritised one area for England to focus on and improve: the scrum.The only thing Im interested in now is winning the Six Nations and to win the Six Nations we need more consistency in our set piece, Jones said. I want to have the most dominant scrum. The scrum in the Six Nations is enormously important so we want that dominance.Jones says he has already picked his Six Nations squad but it will be fascinating to see how he integrates those players who missed the autumn Tests through injury. Maro Itoje and Manu Tuilagi have made their returns to club rugby at while Anthony Watson, Jack Nowell, Billy Vunipola and James Haskell are all set to return in the coming months.The England coach is expecting players to be left disappointed if they miss out on selection but is predicting as many as 15 players may be picked for the British & Irish Lions tour. And it is this battle to make the England team and ultimately the Lions tour which he feels will ensure his team stay on this upwards trajectory.If players arent hungry and you see it in their performance straight away, then they wont be here, Jones said. We have enough depth to change the squad if we need to. You want intrinsically the players to want to do it.Were developing players like that. Theres a tipping point in the team when you get six, seven, eight players with that absolute desire to want to do well then if youre not in that group, you tend to fall out. Thats how great teams keep on getting better. We havent got that tipping point yet but were moving towards it.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Atlantic Coast Conference has fined Louisville and Virginia Tech $25,000 each after reviewing the findings of a Wake Forest investigation that concluded a former Demon Deacons assistant coach-turned-broadcaster leaked game plans to opponents.Commissioner John Swofford said in a statement Saturday that he is deeply disturbed something like this would occur.The league said its review and follow-up discussions with the schools indicated that game plan information for four of Wake Forests games was provided to three schools over a three-year period from 2014-16 -- Virginia Tech in 2014, Louisville in 2016 and Army in both 2014 and 16.Wake Forest beat both the Hokies (6-3 in double overtime) and Army (24-21) in 2014. Army beat the Demon Deacons 21-13 on Oct. 29 -- two weeks before a trip to Louisville in which they lost 44-12 and began to suspect a security breach.The announcement came four days after former Wake Forest assistant and radio analyst Tommy Elrod was fired after the school determined he shared or attempted to share inside information.Sportsmanship and ethical values are at the core of competitive integrity, Swofford said, and in these instances, those were missing.The ACC says the amounts of the fines are the highest allowed by the leagues bylaws. The announcement came a day after Louisville said co-offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway was suspended for the Citrus Bowl following its internal review, and the ACC said in its statement that it is fully supportive of that suspension.An Army spokesman also said Saturday that it will investigate its role in the scandal, with Superintendent Lt.ddddddddddddGen. Robert Caslen ordering athletic director Boo Corrigan to open an investigation that will be conducted by a U.S. Army officer.Elrod has not returned phone calls or text messages, and his lawyer -- former Wake Forest player James Quander -- has declined to comment ever since the school released its findings.Wake Forest began its review after documents related to its game plan for the Louisville game on Nov. 12 were discovered at the Cardinals stadium.Coach Dave Clawson revealed four days later that school officials were investigating a possible security breach and Wake Forest announced its findings Tuesday night -- absolving the current staff and players and pinning the blame solely on Elrod, a former player in the 1990s and assistant under Jim Grobe who went into broadcasting when he was not retained during the coaching change to Clawson following the 2013 season.Academy spokesman Matt Faulkner confirmed Armys involvement Wednesday night but did not have any additional details.A day later, Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock said a former unidentified Hokies assistant was provided with some game plan information before their game in 2014 but that retired coach Frank Beamer had no knowledge of it and the assistant was not retained when Justin Fuente replaced him after last season.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Jerseys NFL China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2020 Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
