England fall to series defeat against Springboks

Dane van Niekerk had a previous ODI high score of 81

Brother Mako Vunipola is also returning home for family reasons, while Ellis Genge has already flown back to the United Kingdom because of a knee injury picked up in training.

England suffered a sixth successive defeat as they were brushed aside 23-12 by South Africa to surrender the series in a bad-tempered second Test at Free State Stadium.

Vunipola was forced off with the injury before half-time in Bloemfontein, six months after first breaking his arm in Saracens' European Champions Cup tie with Ospreys.

Exeter Chiefs' Alec Hepburn has been called in as a replacement and will join the squad at their training base near Durban before the third and final Test against the Springboks in Cape Town next Saturday.

England sent the ball through the hands and May drew the last defender to put Brown in down the left to get his second try in the series after dotting down last week.

But asked if his players won or lost with dignity, he told BBC Radio 5 live: "I think they always do".

'Modern Family' Boss, Seth MacFarlane Embarrassed to Work for Fox
There are some indications, however, that the ongoing criticism of Fox News could end up hurting the company's business. On Monday, MacFarlane donated donated $2.5 million to National Public Radio .

When Jones was sacked as coach of Australia in December 2005, he had lost eight of his last nine tests with a side that was also beset by injury. Sometimes you have to be very disciplined in the way you think.

Mairs also suggested Jones' job security was now in question, particularly given their fixtures as they fine tune their World Cup preparations.

Captain Owen Farrell was equally as frustrated with the result and said England will do everything they can to salvage something from the tour in their final Test next Saturday. "But we will try a few new things because now we have the opportunity to put different guys in different positions under pressure".

Citing poor defence, indiscipline and too many mistakes during a year where England also finished a worst-ever fifth in the Six Nations, Fordyce concludes: "Something has to change for England".

"My job is to make the team win and it is not winning. I thought the game was a good, hard tough test match".

You are always going to have a hard run and every team that I have been in that has been successful we've had a hard run like this. "I am excited about where we are going to go and I realise it is a tough time and I realise our fans and supporters will be disappointed, but all I can assure you is that we will be doing everything that we can, every minute of the day to turn this team around", the 58-year-old said.
