Things have changed a lot since those days when panache was not forgotten simply despised. These days all international teams are more similar and the players perhaps less crazy than they were in the amateur era. It's still the oldest and one of the most successful English tactics to do as they did against Ireland 2 weeks ago and 'bring on the beasts' which always reminds me the way Probyn and Leonard used to play. They sub in huge men who may not have the fanciest skills but can simply crush the opposition, batter them into the ground. It works best in heavy rain of course like much that is English. As a tactic it has seldom failed except against South Africa and Argentina who do it even better than we do. You may remember Brieve had great success for a couple of seasons some years ago playing in the same way. It's is surely not pretty but still great to watch.
"The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom, courage."
Thucydides (B.C. 460-400)
